You would be involved in a wide range of work to include assisting with Estate Management, the Purchase and occasional Sales of Rural property, a good deal of Professional work, Lettings, HLS and other Compensation Schemes, all of which is undertaken over a very wide geographic area and involves working on both upland and low ground Farm and Estates. You would also and depending on your level of interest, be involved in our Sporting work, including Shoot Management and lettings, you will need to be self-motivated, able to communicate well, commercially aware and wanting to gain experience in a wide range of different work. 

You will be working within a largely young team. 

The second is a Placement Student (also from a REALM type course). 

We have had a good number of Sandwich Year Placements in recent years. If you were to join us in this role, you would be fully involved in all aspects of the firm’s business including assisting with Estate Management, a significant involvement in Sporting work, assisting one of the Directors or senior Assistants with purchases, sales, lettings and professional work. You would get a broad range of experience in a very diverse and very busy Chartered Surveying and Land Agency Practice which whilst it has a particular emphasis on Sporting-related work, also does a great deal more besides. 

You would work alongside our Sporting Agency (William Powell Sporting) and retail business (William Powell). This gives you the opportunity to gain excellent business experience from two market leading companies. 

We offer a good remuneration package which will be based on £18,000 per annum for the Sandwich year student and £22,000 for the Graduate, and very varied work experience, working in some of the most beautiful places in the UK. We have an outstanding record of first time passes in the APC exams and all our recent Placement Students have gone on to obtain excellent employment when they have finished their course. Several of our recent leavers are very happy to provide testimonial as to their experience working for the Firm. A quote from a recent Sandwich year student probably sums up the firm; 

“I had the most amazing year doing things, seeing places and meeting people I would probably never see at another firm. It was an unforgettable experience, which my friends were very jealous of!” 

If you would like to apply for either of these positions, please send a covering letter and CV to JM Osborne & Co, Carrs House, 1 Tramway, Banbury, Oxfordshire OX16 5TD or email to
