Property consultants and chartered surveyors, Banks Long & Co, have launched a new  graduate training programme this week focused on bringing new talent into the organisation. 

The programme, delivered by Banks Long & Co’s experienced team of consultants and  surveyors, will provide practical experience and training within Building & Cost Consultancy, Development & Investment Consultancy, Management & Professional Services and  Commercial Property Agency. Over the course of the 2 year programme, graduates rotate  between each division of the organisation, obtaining valuable experience prior to taking their Assessment of Professional Competence (APC) and gaining RICS accreditation. 

The programme has initially launched with 3 graduates taking part in the scheme, but will  soon expand to support the growth of more candidates. 

Banks Long & Co Director, James Butcher, says, “The new scheme is intended to widen the  experience of the graduates that join our team. It will support keeping talented young  professionals within Lincolnshire and put them in a strong position to progress their career”. 

He continues, “Banks Long & Co is growing at a significant pace so we need new talent  entering the organisation to support this. Within the last 6 months alone we have added 4  new surveyors to our team and will need to recruit many more to fulfil our long term vision for  the organisation. The new graduate programme will provide the high calibre of people that  we need to deliver this growth strategy. 

Will Nuttall, University of Lincoln graduate and one of the first employees to take part in the  scheme, says, “Banks Long & Co have provided myself and the other graduates with a clear  structured pathway to fast-track our career development. Working alongside, and being  mentored, by a skilled team who have many years of experience is invaluable. This  programme has allowed me to stay in Lincoln to continue my professional development  rather than looking further afield outside of the county.” 

Will Nuttal, alongside fellow graduates Harry Collins and Harry Hodgkinson will complete the  programme in 2023.
