Are Building Surveyors in High Demand?
Building Surveyors are in huge demand. At Property Partners Recruitment, we deal with a high quantity of new Building Surveyor jobs each month. There is a significant candidate shortage across all levels when it comes to Building Surveyors – which puts skilled Building Surveyors in a strong position. Salaries and benefits are often reflective of their in-demand skillset – and Building Surveyors very rarely struggle to find work.
At present, we are seeing increased competition to recruit and retain Chartered Building Surveyor staff with salaries increasing elsewhere.
Is Being a Building Surveyor a Good Career?
Building Surveying is an excellent career for anybody interested in both the property and construction industries.
The widely recognised skills shortage combined with an aging workforce within Building Surveying means there is plenty of opportunity to carve out a very successful career for yourself, with a well-paying salary.
How to Become a Building Surveyor
If you’re considering a career in Building Surveying, there are steps to take to gain the necessary qualifications required. Usually, Building Surveyors will achieve a degree before undertaking structured training, or becoming part of a professional organisation.
RICS (the Royal Institution of Chartered Surveyors) is the most recognised regulatory body for Building Surveyors.
If you want to become a Chartered Building Surveyor once you’ve completed the necessary training, you’ll be required to earn a RICS accredited degree and complete your APC (Assessment of Professional Competence). To do this, you’ll need at least 2 years structured training, but if you have 5-10 years of practical experience as a Building Surveyor you could also be eligible to become Chartered.
