Step Up Scheme

Gold Crest Chartered Surveyors operate the 'Step Up Scheme' for Sava students, throughout England and Wales, who are looking for a mentor and to work for a firm once they qualify.

Having taken many Sava graduates through the scheme already we like you to finish your academic phase and then start mentoring with us when in your assessment phase, this way you know what you are looking at and do not get overwhelmed with practical and theory onsite. The Step Up Scheme has been very successful in taking Sava students into work with Gold Crest and you will see on our LinkedIn account numerous stories, photos and events the mentees and employees are involved in.
