We are recruiting for a Trainee Land Surveyors

Land Surveying, or Topographical Surveying, is the critical first stage of any building or engineering project. A Land Surveyor determines the position of any feature and landform within a specified area. At 40Seven, we use a variety of methods and technology to carry out topographical surveys.

Our aspiration is to be the UK’s number one surveying company. We have over 20 years’ experience working in the industry and have an excellent and comprehensive training programme for new surveyors which will see you becoming a fully trained surveyor within 12 months of you starting your training programme with us. We will also put your through your TSA (The Survey Association) Training and Qualification. Due to start dates and waiting lists we aim to have you start your TSA training within the first 2 years of employment. Our training programme is hands on, so from your first week, you will be out onsite with an experienced mentor.

We are therefore looking for people who really want to learn this profession. Our successful candidates don’t need any particular work history or background; we are willing to train people who are looking for a career change or who are looking for their first job. However, the following personal attributes are essential:

  • A methodical, detail orientated and thorough approach to work
  • A good understanding of maths (ideally above a Grade C /4 at GCSE level or equivalent) and experience of using mathematics in the workplace.
  • A natural desire to work outdoors, in any weather, in a variety of locations across the country
  • A full driving licence

Our successful candidate must be able to work away from home during the week and must be available to carry out night or evening shifts as and when required.

It is desirable, but not essential that candidates have experience using CAD, within a home or work environment.

This role offers a huge amount of variety in working locations and type of work. The role is around 80% site based and 20% office work. Office work is normally done from our office in Sevenoaks, Kent or Leeds, West Yorkshire when working with others and/or training but can also be done from home if collaboration is not required.

We work all over the UK so staying away is often part of the role. If you are based from our Sevenoaks office, the majority of your work will be in and around the South East and London. If you are based from our Leeds office, the majority of your work will be in and around Yorkshire, Lancashire and The Midlands.


We have a host of great employee benefits including, but not limited to;

  • Enhanced employer contributory pension scheme
  • Enhanced life assurance scheme
  • 25 days holiday allowance
  • Shopping, gym and cinema discounts
  • Salary sacrifice cycle scheme.
  • Introduce a friend bonus scheme
  • Favourable absence pay scheme
  • Celebrating success awards (given out when people do something great)

As well as the above, we will provide you with support and encouragement to learn and develop to truly reach your potential.
