          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

          Skills & interests required for a career in Property

          Working in property requires you to be accurate and pay attention to detail, as mistakes can be costly. You will also take some responsibility for the safety of properties and ensuring that they meet government building standards.

          Good communication skills are also necessary as the work will require you to liaise with multiple other teams, departments or clients.

          Other skills that will benefit you in the property industry include:

          Property apprenticeships & other career progress routes for school leavers

          If you commit yourself to an apprenticeship and professional development whilst you are working, those who enter the profession as a school-leaver can progress to a similar level to someone with a degree.

          However, the progression route will vary quite widely depending on which area of property you decide to go into.

          Architects, for example, have specific education and training requirements that must be completed before you can practice.

          Building surveyors typically become either technical or chartered. A technical surveyor undergoes two years of RICs training and then the Assessment of Technical Competence, whereas a chartered surveyor will study for the qualification through their employer and complete an Assessment of Professional Competence.

          In property management, you will build up your clientele and take on larger properties as you move into more senior roles. If you decide to go into the sales side of property, you could work your way up to a managerial level and be in charge of a team.

          Tips for getting into the field

          Write down a list of all the property companies that you aspire to work for and then research their websites to check what credentials and experience they ask for.

          Any work experience that is relevant to the role that you wish to go in will be helpful. For example, if you want to be a real estate agent, some prior experience of sales will help you. It can be a little more difficult to source this for technical work, like surveying, but you could try to get some experience in construction.

          What do Property professionals get paid?

          There are a myriad of roles that you can do within property, but here are the average salaries of a selection of roles in the UK:

          Property manager - £23,275 Land surveyor - £24,887 Building surveyor - £29,506 Commercial property surveyor - £41,846 Quantity surveyor - £32,103 Estate agent - £21,000 (+ commission) Sales negotiator - £15,192 Architect - £33,683 Property administrator - £18,770 Marketing manager - £45,000

          What qualifications do I need for a career in Property?

          There is a selection of apprenticeships available for school-leavers who want to get into property.

          The RICS (Royal Institute of Chartered Surveyors) accredits certain apprenticeship courses, so if you want to be a building surveyor ensure that the programme you are following is endorsed by the RICS to give yourself the best start in your career.

          The apprenticeships that are recognised include:

          • Surveying Technician Apprenticeship
          • Chartered Surveyor Apprenticeship
          • Geospatial Survey Technician Apprenticeship
          • Geospatial Mapping and Sciences Apprenticeship
          • Digital Engineering Technician Apprenticeship

          The entry requirements to these apprenticeships are determined by the employer, but will typically require three good A-levels.

          An apprenticeship allows you to earn a salary as you learn to profession. At the end you have work experience alongside a recognised qualification.
