Jack Harley has commenced his new role as a Graduate Surveyor in our Burnham-on-sea office. He has recently finished his studies in Rural Enterprise and Land Management at Harper Adams University in Shropshire where he achieved a 2:1. During his four year course he gained experience on a placement year at Clinton Devon Estates as a Trainee Land Agent.

Graduates and students who join GTH have a unique opportunity to learn the day to day surveying role from highly qualified staff and are  supported through a work-based learning approach. This provides them with a thorough understanding of becoming a Chartered Surveyor, whether specialising in residential, agricultural or the commercial &  development/planning departments.

Jack still has some studying to do before he is fully qualified. In the next year he hopes to complete his Assessment of Professional Competence, at which point he will be assessed by a panel of members of  the Royal Institution of Chartered Surveyors before he is awarded with  the title of ‘Chartered Surveyor’.  Jack is also completing studies to  sit exams by the Central Association of Agricultural Valuers to become a member so he has a busy year planned, all with the support of the experienced team at GTH.

Jack was drawn to a career in rural chartered surveying due to his  love of the outdoors and North Devon, where he lives. He says, “The work that comes with being a rural Chartered Surveyor is challenging but satisfying and gives me a chance to work outdoors in the country.” He enjoys pheasant and clay shooting, horse riding and visiting the North  Devon beaches to surf.

If you are interested in a graduate career with GTH, you can benefit from:

  • Support from experienced surveyors as mentors providing regular and  ongoing monitoring of your performance to ensure you are progressing  well and gain the high standard of competence expected.
  •  “On the job” work experience and real client interaction.
  • Access to unrivalled expertise and knowledge from all areas of the business as well as the resources needed to complete your APC training. As well as ongoing continued professional development of the RICS and for those in the rural sector, suitable training to become a full member of the CAAV.
