A Pathway To Starting Your Career

Lisney has the most highly respected graduate programme in the Irish property industry, focused on developing your technical, interpersonal, teamwork and organisational skills.

We offer all our graduates all the experience and training necessary to complete their Assessment of Professional Competence (APC), which is required to become a chartered surveyor and full member of the Society of Chartered Surveyors Ireland and Royal Institution of Chartered Surveyors.

Walk In Our Shoes

The graduate programme lasts two to three years, and during this time you’ll get a chance to gain hands-on experience in at least two Lisney departments — and this will help you decide whether you’d prefer the Residential pathway or the Commercial pathway.

You’ll get feedback at every stage, and we won’t put you forward for the APC exams until you’re ready. We’re ready to work with you to hit your career goals.
