Assistant Surveyor

Most roles involve getting out and about, visiting and getting to know different parts of London/ cities within the UK.  It’s tangible in that you can point out properties that you have been involved in, whether that be in Valuation, Agency or Property Management.  Being intrinsically linked to dips and booms in the market, the world of property is constantly changing, which makes it an exciting sector to be involved with.  It is also generally a social job – getting out and networking is part of the job.
