Commercial Real Estate

Build the city for everyone.

“Starting the Commercial Real Estate Graduate Scheme in the Property Management team has given me a great insight into how valuable the next two years will be. I have been able to delve straight into the work, managing my own portfolio of Arches. Every day is different at TfL, ranging from site-visits, meetings, office work and projects. I look forward to gaining experience and skills in all my rotations, whilst working towards my APC. TfL offers many opportunities and support, and I believe is a great place to start your property career as a graduate.”
