The Sector

A career in real estate offers so much more than you’d expect. With over 100 specialist roles available in the UK alone, choosing to work in property gives you the opportunity to design your dream career path and experience a vibrant, diverse day-to-day job that’s unlike anything else — and it can start from the moment you leave school.

A career in real estate is about progression

No two days in property are the same, and working as a surveyor, you’ll get to work with some of the most ambitious and exciting building projects happening right now. As a fresh face in the industry, the new skills, ideas and technologies you bring to the industry can help change the profession for good.

A career in real estate is about place

It’s not just selling houses — it’s about learning new geographies, visiting new places and transforming environments. Whether you’re laying the groundwork for a new skyscraper, working inside a building to make it more sustainable or securing the perfect tenants, to managing entire sites, surveyors see it all — and typically work from start to finish, helping projects all the way through to completion. We know how it feels to leave a legacy.

Finally, and best of all, a career in real estate is about people

You’re not stuck behind a desk all day, you’re out meeting people, from builders to tenants, authorities to architects. No matter which job you choose or where you specialise, you’ll get to work with some of the most inspiring teams and individuals, helping solve unique problems and overcome property challenges in the UK and beyond.

It all starts with your qualifications
and experience

Be it Quantity Surveying, Building Surveying or Real Estate Management — university courses the Chancerygate Foundation can help you get into —  your studies will give you the best foundations and skills to land your perfect job in the industry. From there, you can become a member of the globally-recognised Royal Institution of Chartered Surveyors (RICS) and open up a world of new opportunities.
