Working as true partners with our clients in realising the full value of their land.

Strutt & Parker’s Rural Consultancy covers three main areas of business, each requiring different skills and qualifications. They are Land Management, Farming and Building Surveying.

Land Management

Our Land Management Department is one of the largest of its kind, specialising in looking after private clients. We advise on over 1000 rural estates and, each year, we welcome between 15 and 20 new graduates into our offices in England and Scotland. All our recruits are expected to study towards membership of RICS, and most join us having completed a degree course approved by RICS. We are, however, pleased to accept applications from graduates of other subjects on the understanding that they will have to undertake further study to “convert” their degrees.

Our Land Management teams are based in the following offices:

Banchory; Cambridge; Canterbury; Chelmsford; Chester; Cirencester; Exeter; Guildford; Harrogate; Inverness; Ipswich; Lewes; Morpeth; Northallerton; Norwich; Oxford; Perth; Salisbury; Shrewsbury; St Albans; Stamford.

Strutt & Parker does, of course, offer you all the support you will need to help you pass your APC at the earliest opportunity. You will gain varied on-the-job experience working as part of one of our successful teams, and will quickly be given plenty of responsibility for looking after the interests of our clients.


Our Farming Department helps landowners and farmers meet their business objectives and make the most from their land. Strutt & Parker would usually be looking for Graduates with strong farming backgrounds and good agriculture-related degrees.

Building Surveying

Our Private Property Projects team offers a range of architectural and building services to private clients. Operating out of our Guildford office, it takes a small number of new graduates each year

Application Process

If you wish to apply for a graduate position in our Rural Consultancy, you should send us your CV, together with a formal letter of application. These should be two separate documents (Word or PDF) attached to an email. We do not accept applications by post, nor by any method other than email. Once you have sent us your application, we will reply to let you know that we have received it. If you do not receive an acknowledgment within 24 hours, please contact us again to check. We do not have an application form for you to complete, and we do not set maximum or minimum sizes for your documents. This is our way of allowing you to tell us about yourself in your own words.

You must tell us where in the country you would like to work, and which part of our business is of interest to you. We do not have vacancies at all our offices, but we will always try to place you as close to your chosen area as we can, and we will never expect you to accept a job offer before you have had a chance to visit the office in question.
