What Our Graduates are saying:



Danny Savage ACABE

Trainee Building Control Surveyor

“The graduate programme at Shore makes the training process much more efficient. The programme not only assists you with your academic studies, but also alongside your daily duties as a surveyor with various tasks focused on practical development. The most beneficial part of the programme though is the fact that it is focused on the principles of gaining your professional qualification through your chosen body. This is the key factor to the programme as it not only gives you the knowledge and experience for this process, but the confidence too”.

Peter Davies

Assistant Building Control Surveyor

Having joined Shore from a different type of Building Surveying role, it has been made a lot easier with the Shore Graduate Programme. It has given me an opportunity to learn from multiple chartered surveyors and apply that knowledge within my day to day role and with other graduates. With the practical and theory based knowledge gained from the Graduate Programme alongside my on-site experience, this is preparing me for gaining my Chartered professional qualifications.

My role within our London team has allowed me to be involved in some prestigious projects across Central London which has been very rewarding. With the support of Shore it is improving me as a surveyor and giving me the opportunity to gain some unique experiences.
