Our exceptional graduate programme

Realise your talent

This is your chance to work hard and shape your future. We are always looking for exceptional graduate talent: people who share our passion for planning and development and delivering lasting results.
Our graduates are hands-on and embrace challenges. They have ambition and are given responsibility to work on some of the UK’s most important development projects, whilst driving their own progression.
At Lichfields, graduates experience our energetic entrepreneurial culture. You will interact with directors, confront complex planning challenges, and build relationships and skills that will endure far beyond the graduate programme.

James Fennell, Chief Executive

In good company

We are highly successful and we are growing. We know this is because of the quality of our people. We are very proud to have been recognised as one of the ‘Best Places to Work in Property’ by Property Week magazine.
Many of our senior people started with us as graduates and worked their way up. We will give you the chance to work on some of the country’s most exciting projects for the best clients. You will be given all the project experience and targeted training you need to build a brilliant career in planning and development.

Bright minds want to have fun

We know that people are most creative and achieve more if they’re happy and have fun in their place of work. That is why we like to combine the two. You will enjoy the support of mentors and colleagues, as well as our social and networking events, where you can build lasting friendships.

Investing in you

We are an employee-owned company. That means all our profits are invested back into the business to benefit our people. We pay competitive salaries and fantastic bonuses so that all our people share in the success of Lichfields.
In addition to our rewards and benefits’ offerings, we strive to ensure that we have policies that promote a healthy workplace. Whether it’s a focus on work/life balance or the opportunity to work from one of our nine offices across the UK, we aim to meet our people’s needs.



This is only the beginning

Inspired by our legacy of investing in people, our three year Graduate Programme is designed to draw out the best in you. We provide you with the opportunities to prove your capabilities and pursue realising your potential.
Our graduates have important roles that come with real responsibility. Your delivery and contribution during the programme will shape the scope of your future at Lichfields.
