Helping you find a career in the Surveying industry

Surveying can widely be divided into land surveying and property surveying, with numerous roles available within these areas. It’s a responsible role and requires a range of skills, but once you’ve qualified you’ll have a wealth of career options.

Building surveying includes:


  • Analysing problems with structures and properties

  • Advising on building repairs, including costs and responsibilities

  • Checking planning applications

  • Ensuring that properties meet building regulations


Land surveying includes:

  • Checking environmental effects of projects such as roads, tunnels or water networks

  • Producing maps

  • Monitoring environmental changes


As a technical surveyor, you would play a supporting role to someone who is chartered. However, you could work across both land and property and expect tasks such like:

  • Valuing land, property or machinery

  • Organising auction sales for land and property

  • Monitoring projects

  • Working out finances of a project

  • Surveying buildings and mapping land


Another common role within surveying is a quantity surveyor. As a quantity surveyor you would be involved in each stage of the construction process, but your expertise is in costs and contracts. You will be involved with the financial side of a project right from initial calculations in the proposal stage to post-completion fees. An element of this is negotiating contracts and keeping on top of any changes that happen throughout the course of the project.

Most of the roles within surveying will require a degree that is recognised by the Royal Institution of Chartered Surveyors (RICS). A RICS-accredited degree is recognised internationally and could enable you to travel all over the world.

Surveying enables you to be out and about in the world, visiting sites and working in the community. You will also have to spend time in an office, but your time will be split between the two. It will also require you to be outside in all conditions for inspections.

As a surveyor, you may also be involved in risk management on site and be in charge of conducting assessments to identify key areas of risk, then finding solutions so that the project is as safe as it can be.

A career in surveying is quite stable, as technical inspectors of buildings, land and construction sites are always going to be required.


Skills & interests required for a career in Surveying
Surveying requires you to have an incredible eye for detail, and an aptitude for maths or science will help you with the more technical aspects of the role.

You will also need a good, technical understanding of building and a knowledge of the regulations and standards that they have to be held against, which will be recognised by a formal qualification.

Good IT skills will be essential for computer-aided design (CAD) work or analysing plans.

You will need to be proficient in basic elements of finance or maths to assist with costings and budgeting.

A good surveyor will need have excellent written and verbal communication skills to enable them to work with clients and to write up reports easily.

The work of a surveyor is incredibly important and projects depend on it being done well and in a timely manner. You’ll need to be responsible as your work has a real impact!

It’s also likely that you will require a driving licence to travel between projects.
- Attention to detail
- Communication
- Detail-orientated
- Flexibility
- Mathematical ability
Graduate schemes & other typical career progression routes in Surveying
If your degree is not RICS-accredited, you have the option to do a postgraduate conversion course to get into surveying.

Once you have qualified as a surveyor, you will progress by taking on larger, more complex projects or moving up to a team leader position.

The typical career path for a quantity surveyor would look something like:

  • Trainee quantity surveyor[|List]
  • Junior quantity surveyor[|List]
  • Senior quantity surveyor[|List]
  • Contracts manager[|List]
  • Senior contracts manager[|List]
  • Head of contracts[|List]
  • Vice president of contracts[|List]

The career paths for building and land surveying are similar, beginning as a trainee before progressing into senior and managerial roles.

Alternatively, with some years of experience you could become a self-employed consultant and give advice on a contractual basis.
Tips for getting into the field
Get some work experience – it doesn’t necessarily have to be work experience as a surveyor (this will be near impossible!), but anything within the field of construction or property will help you understand more about the sector and demonstrate your interest.

Get on LinkedIn – connect with others in the industry and keep an eye on what conversations are happening. This is a great way to stay up to date with job opportunities too.
How much can graduates earn in Surveying?
The earning potential for a surveyor would depend on the specialism. These are the typical salary ranges in the three main types of surveying work:

Building surveyor – £22,000-£70,000
Land surveyor - £20,000-£70,000
Technical surveyor - £18,000-£32,000

The salaries within surveying go up significantly with experience in the field.
What qualifications do I need for a career in Surveying?
You will need to have completed a RICS accredited degree course, but if you have not then you are able to complete a postgraduate conversation qualification. This could be either done through a graduate training scheme or by studying at a University either full or part time.

Alternatively, some employers also offer degree apprenticeship programs.

After completing these qualifications you will need to complete professional development training to continue to progress your career in surveying.

More information about the RICS and their accredited degree programmes can be found here.
