Career Profile: Valuation
Name: Richard Glenwright
Job Title: Valuation
I work in the Valuation team.
I get free chocolate from a manufacturing client every time I visit their factory. It makes me a very popular team member!
I have responsibility for industrial valuations within the team. This involves the valuation of anything from a small industrial unit let to the local plumbing firm or carpenter, to million square feet warehouses occupied by the likes of Amazon & John Lewis, to nuclear power station sites across the UK. I get to travel all over the country (and sometimes Europe) inspecting all kinds of out of the ordinary sites.

Having a career that meant I wasn’t stuck behind a desk all day was really important to me. Also, the industry is very sociable and friendly. These are some of the reasons why I love my job, and wouldn’t hesitate to recommend pursuing a career in property.
