Helping you find a career in the property industry
Property requires a highly skilled workforce to maintain historic buildings, safely construct new homes and ensure that everything is up to government standards.
The wide range of roles available in property means that there are opportunities to suit those of all different skillsets, background and working preferences. Some roles will be the typical 9-5 working day in an office, whereas others will involve elements of travel and communicating with the public.
The three broad areas that you can work within property are: commercial, residential and rural.
Residential properties include all kinds of homes, from basic apartments to stately houses. The commercial properties sector also covers business buildings such as gyms and restaurants. Working in rural property means that you will also deal with barns, farms and stables.
These different kinds of properties have different regulations and standards, which means that some people choose to specialise in a certain area. However, it's possible to work across all three if you enjoy the variety.
Some of the work that you can do in property includes:
- Surveying properties
- Planning development
- Selling, buying, letting or renting property and land
- Valuing land or property
- Increasing the value of land or property
