          Helping you find a career in property & construction

          Property is absolutely everywhere and a key industry in our society. We live, work, go to school in all different kinds of properties. Many of us work to save up so we can own one at some point in our lives.

          The different roles within property require a range of skills, so the chances are you'll be able to find something that you're good at - whether you're selling properties, designing them, marketing them or even building them.

          Typical roles within property include:

          • Working within planning and land development
          • Property inspector
          • Property or land development
          • Property or land valuation
          • Selling, investing or renting property and land
          • Architect

          Property is divided into three types: residential, commercial and rural. You could specialise in one particular area or work across all three if you wish.

          The progression routes will be different depending on which role you are in, but typically will involve on-the-job training and then exams and study within your company. Working your way up can take quite a few years of experience, so you will need to be patient to rise through the ranks. When you do, though, the work tends to be quite well paid and can offer opportunities for international travel.

          Skills & interests required for a career in Property & construction

          To work in property or construction you will need to have the technical skills for your role, which can be taught on the job through an apprenticeship or via the relevant degree. For some jobs, like an architect, the skills are very specific and will require a degree plus years of training.

          However, across most roles in the industry you will benefit from having soft skills.

          What Property & construction work experience do you need?

          You could get some first-hand experience of a construction through volunteering or work experience. Contact your local construction and property firms and ask if there is any way you could be helpful. Once in there, make sure you ask about the role that you're considering pursuing to get a fuller understanding of what it would entail. If you're not yet sure which area takes your interest, you might want to try your hand at different types of roles and pursue a few different work experience roles.

          Property is quite an interdisciplinary industry and will require you to work with a range of different teams to see a project through to completion. As a result, any project experience that you can get which requires communication between teams will help you in this industry.
