JOINING
To join the Thieves Guild, travel to Riften and come into contact with Brynjolf, who can be found at the market stalls during the day, or the Bee and Barb tavern during the night. Brynjolf will approach you and question your wealth before inviting you to help him with a little plot. This begins the first quest, A Chance Arrangement, in which you must steal a ring and plant it on another person.

After joining there are a few requirements before you can unlock this Achievement. These include completing the Main Quest, Tonilias Two Misc Quests and all 4 Special Jobs.


MAIN QUESTS
The first requirement is completing the main Quest line:

A Chance Arrangement

Taking Care of Business

Loud and Clear

Dampened Spirits

Scoundrel's Folly

Speaking With Silence

The Pursuit

Trinity Restored

Blindsighted

Darkness Returns

MISCELLANEOUS QUEST
Tonilia will also occasionally have some Miscellaneous quests. You should complete these to avoid any issues, specifically after completing Scoundrel's Folly, as you will be offered the Miscellaneous quest: Speak to Tonilia about exchanging a piece of armor.

If you do not complete this quest, she will not talk to you about any other quests, including giving you Guild Master Armor and blocking you from progressing later.

You must keep at least one piece of Guild Armor to upgrade it, if you already got rid of all your Armor, you can find pieces near the beds in The Ragged Flagon - Cistern area, or more specifically in the North East Training Area, also in the Cistern.


SPECIAL JOBS
The other requirement is completing all 4 Special Jobs (otherwise known as City Influence Quests).

After joining the Guild, Delvin and Vex will offer you unlimited radiant quests, known as "Jobs".

You must complete five jobs in one region (Whiterun, Windhelm, Makarth or Solitude) to unlock that regions Special Job (Note: Riften is not required). In total you would be completing 20 of these jobs across the 4 regions.

The easiest jobs to complete in my opinion are Numbers and Shill. For efficiency you can receive a job from Delvin and Vex at the same time, completing them both before returning to minimise travel. Delvin and Vex can give you details about the other kinds of jobs if you wish to learn more.

If you receive a quest for a region you don't require (such as Riften or for an area you have already done 5 jobs and the Special Job) you can simply just talk to the quest giver again and choose to quit the job, and then receive a new one.

After completing 5 jobs in the same region, Delvin will talk to you about a "Special Job". The 4 required Special Jobs are for the Major Holds of Skyrim:

Imitation Amnesty in Whiterun

Summerset Shadows in Windhelm

Silver Lining in Markarth

The Dainty Sload in Solitude


MISCELLANEOUS QUEST
The other Miscellaneous quest from Tonilia should also be completed Deliver Moon Sugar to Ri'saad, which is given after completing three special jobs for the Guild.


ADDITIONAL INFO
You can complete these in any order you wish, I finished all 4 Special Jobs before completing the Main Quest. I also upgraded my armor after completing the Main Quest.


BECOMING GUILD MASTER
After all these requirements are done, speak to Brynjolf and a new quest should start called Under New Management. Complete the ceremony, then talk to Brynjolf again. He will tell you to retrieve your Guild Leader Armor from Tonilia (Note: For this step you do not require to already have a peice of Guild Armor).

Upon receiving your Master Guild Armor the achivement should pop!
