Careers as a Surveyor

The Role of a Surveyor

Our Chartered Surveyors specialise in residential valuation. We have two teams with one covering London and the other, based in Oxford, covering the south of England. The London team deals with all property types, from studio flats and mansion blocks to town houses and large family homes. The Oxford team covers farms, equestrian estates, village and country houses.

Being professionally qualified as Members or Fellows of the Royal Institution of Chartered Surveyors is only part of the job description, as property is a people business. Our clients come from all walks of life and they deserve and expect the highest level of service. Consequently, we look for intelligent and well-presented individuals whom can think laterally to help and advise our clients.

From time to time we headhunt qualified surveyors who have the knowledge and expertise we require.
