Career Profile: Office Agency Surveyor

Name: Elizabeth Ridler

Job Title: Office Agency Surveyor

I work in Leeds in the Office Agency Department.

My job is incredibly varied and highly sociable and is a great job to have especially as you are not tied to your desk. Every day is different from inspecting buildings, offering advice to occupiers looking to relocate or strategy planning to Landlord’s looking to maximize their asset (property). It is certainly a lot of fun!  In terms of rewards there is plenty of scope to rise through the ranks through hard work and determination.


  • 11 GCSEs

If you enjoyed Human Geography at school and have good people skills but do not want the structure involved with Accountancy and Law, property could be the career for you.
