Working at TFT
Working at TFT
Wellbeing is central to the work we do. Our comprehensive benefits and policies put your wellbeing first, and beyond those we take a personal approach to the physical, mental and emotional health of each member of our team.
We are ambitious with our work, and we invest in your ambitions too. At TFT you’ll be involved with exciting projects, landmark buildings and major client challenges around the UK and Europe. From day one, you’ll be sponsored to learn, practice, and expand your knowledge in the best way for you.
We are industry thought-leaders, contributing guidance on policy and best practice. We research and discuss issues impacting our work, as with our research on Redefining Building Performance, and ongoing work to improve the outlook for decarbonisation across our industry – we seek to challenge our clients and our industry peers to build a better future together.
TFT has a network of 11 regional hubs around the UK, with more than 180 people working across a diverse range of client challenges. Our success is the result of a collaborative culture; we work together to achieve. That starts with technology enabling people to work from anywhere, along with a welcoming and sociable culture in each of our offices for colleagues, clients and visitors. It also extends to our charitable efforts, sporting clubs and events, or simply bringing the team together in celebration.
Over the years TFT has supported many communities from local neighbours to professional peers for mental wellbeing, diversity and inclusion, and ensuring the best sustainable impact with our work. As a certified B Corp, we aim to make a positive impact in everything we do, from pro bono work, annual volunteer day, or working closely with our charity partner, LandAid supporting them on their mission to help end youth homelessness.
What makes TFT a great place to work
Dylan Devshi, Senior Quantity Surveyor
"Having worked in other companies prior to joining TFT, as soon as I joined, I knew the dynamics here were totally different. I joined TFT during the Covid-19 pandemic during lockdown and notwithstanding that, I was greeted with the warmest of welcomes. With Covid teaching many of us that there is more to life than work, TFT has managed to provide the right work life balance. I'm now Chartered Surveyor and the support during my APC route has been incredible. If you need a CPD, you will get it, if you need mocks and general sessions, you will get it and most importantly if you need experience, you WILL get it! If you’re driven, have aspirations and want a place to grow then you will achieve that here at TFT!"
Margherita Pende, Associate Director
“When I first joined TFT, three years ago, I was impressed by how welcoming people were and how the multidisciplinary character of TFT enabled people to share knowledge and their experiences. With colleagues based across the UK in our several offices and with Covid giving the option to work more from home, I still very much feel part of the company and a team thanks to our internal employee platform that has all the latest office news and updates, any team building activities to supporting our chosen charities. The marketing and admin team have done a great job to make sure that the TFT values are carried through in what we do!”
Izabela Pritchett, Associate for Sustainability
"Since joining TFT, I have been able to work on a number of exciting projects in central London locations and around the UK. Sustainability is key service line and our aim is to reduce the environmental impact of construction projects and creating more liveable and functional environments for future occupants. I have been able to work collaboratively with various teams and high-profile that have ambitious sustainability goals for their portfolios and projects, which has been very exciting! One of the main things I value working at TFT is that our management are very approachable, open for suggestions and we can utilise our collective knowledge and expertise to influence the way the business develops. All this makes working at TFT inspiring and enjoyable!"
Rohit Chauhan, Director
"TFT is an exceptional place to work… My 15+ years here should provide testimony to that! The combination of great colleagues, technically varied work streams, sound client base and work-life balance, provides TFT with its unique identity. The real estate industry is always evolving and challenging so the structure that TFT has established, to move with the demanding pace and challenges whilst still remaining at the forefront of the industry is a testament!"
Ellie Doyle, Graduate Building Surveyor
"Within my first week of placement, I went to several site visits, my first day on the job my car broke down and the second day I got stuck up a cherry picker! But the TFT colleagues I was assisting looked out for me and I still very much enjoyed my work experience which was the main reason I accepted the offer of a full-time graduate position which I am currently in! I have now enrolled and am undertaking my APC. I really enjoy working at TFT, everyone is very approachable and I really appreciate how the company has the welfare of their staff at the forefront!"
Fatimah Abarshi, Principal Designer
“In TFT, there is a healthy working relationship within the sectors with partners, directors, etc. There is an open line of communication between employees and management. TFT facilitates team-building activities and after-works events to build better relationships with co-workers as well as encourages employees to volunteer for charities or causes close to their hearts. Great colleagues within the business, supportive team, professional growth opportunities and a forward-thinking company that recognises employees are their greatest asset."
