At Knight Frank we believe in enduring partnerships, with our people and with our clients. This has been our philosophy for 125 years and we now benefit from a property services company that is big enough to be global yet small enough to make it work through the very highest level of customer service.


We have built an internationally-connected, diverse yet balanced organisation on a work ethos of collaboration, teamwork, leadership and adaptability.


All opinions are respected and everyone is invited to contribute. We think everyone should love working at Knight Frank. We understand that the only way we will continue to thrive is through the commitment and passion of our people. That is why investing in our people is as important to us as investing in our clients.



The Public Sector is an area of immense opportunity and is of considerable strategic importance to Knight Frank.   We see the role of the Public Sector expanding across all property sectors with a need for the very best strategic, commercial and financial advisory services rooted in mixed-use property expertise.


We are in the process of creating one of the market leading Public Sector Advisory teams with ambitious growth plans in the short term. 


As a team, our over-riding goal is to make a positive difference by working hand in hand with central and local government and other Public Sector bodies, to help them to generate better value for money, manage risk and deliver ambitious regeneration programmes.  We provide a full range of multi-disciplinary services to our clients combining expertise in property, commercial and financial matters.  This includes including production of HM Green Book business cases, advice on PFI expiry strategies, advice on strategic, commercial and delivery structures, financial structuring, governance and procurement advice.


This position would suit someone who is interested in learning about how to develop and deliver advisory mandates to central and local government and other public sector clients.  You will be comfortable working in a wider team and confident to present to our clients.  You will also be comfortable working with numbers and capable of turning that analysis into easy-to-read narrative for inclusion in client reports.
