Whether you’re a trainee or graduate, finding the right position is key to launching a successful career as a qualified estate agent. Equally, discovering the right company to guide you through your journey can make all the difference.

If you are interested in the property market, have a background in sales and good rapport building skills, a graduate or trainee position might be perfect for you. It is helpful to be motivated and hard-working, with great attention to detail and presentation. You will need to have a driving licence and preferably be a car owner.

The role will involve a great deal of customer facing, so you will need to have excellent people skills as you will be meeting and greeting applicants and registering prospective purchasers and tenants who you will be required to discuss potential properties with, and then accompany on viewings. You will also be actively involved in the negotiation process up to the sale or let.
