Our Property & Surveying Consultants recruit roles such as:

  • Estates and Asset Surveyors
  • Property Managers and Strategic Asset Managers
  • Head of Property and Asset Management
  • Executive and Corporate Asset Management

To step into any of the above positions, you should be Chartered with RICS. Roles are available in both the public and private sectors; the private sector has a focus on commercial and investment assets and Local Authorities usually own a mixed-bag of assets; typically commercial, operational, investment, leisure, retail, rural/agricultural.

We support Local Authorities nationwide at all levels and have assisted Property Consultancies.
