About the programme

CBRE UK Ltd. is delighted to launch our new ‘Back To You’ UK Returnship Programme. Applications are open to people who have taken an extended career break and are looking to return to the workplace.

Career breaks can be taken for any number of reasons, to look after a family, provide elderly care, for health reasons, travel, volunteering, study or simply just to take some time out. We recognise that the journey back can be difficult, and understand the importance of finding a good work-life balance with opportunities for flexible working arrangements.

Our 12-week paid programme is designed to help people that are interested in the property sector to transition back into the work environment. Successful candidates will receive tailored guidance and support, incorporating coaching, mentoring, networking and other learning opportunities.  This could include:

  • Welcome event to introduce you to CBRE
  • Market update presentations
  • Line manager to help support and guide you day to day
  • Mentor to have regular check-ins throughout the programme
  • Technical and soft skills training delivered by our in-house talent and learning team
  • Networking opportunities
  • Site visit opportunities
  • The opportunity to develop new relationships
  • The opportunity to broaden your professional networks

You’ll have the chance to make a real impact and contribute to our business with continued support throughout. At the end of the programme there may be an opportunity for a permanent role, depending on the success of the working relationship.

Who should apply?

CBRE’s Returnship programme is for anyone who has taken a voluntary career break for any period of time. We welcome applications from people at all levels who have either worked in the property sector before, or have transferrable skills from other sectors.

Previous experience in the property industry is not a pre-requisite for every role, but a genuine passion for our sector is.

Applications are open to the following areas of our business:

  • Advisory and Transaction
  • Asset Services
  • Building Consultancy
  • Capital Markets
  • Investment Management
  • Development
  • Valuation & Advisory
  • Business Services, including HR, Marketing, IT, Finance and Research

What is the recruitment process?

Recruitment for our Returnships programme opens in February. You'll be asked to complete an online application and upload your CV.
