Summary

The Valuation Office Agency is recruiting Graduate Valuation Surveyors across the UK to undertake the RICS Valuation Pathway. If you enjoy working within a fast paced, challenging environment then this is an excellent opportunity to join our highly skilled and diverse organisation.

We’re responsible for valuing every commercial and domestic property in England and Wales. Our work ensures that people across the country pay the correct taxes for their property through council tax or business rates, and receive the right financial support.

We have around 3,600 people working all over the country. From customer support specialists to valuation experts – our employees are all equally valued and given the opportunity to develop, thrive and most importantly, be themselves. We’re also one of the largest employers of chartered surveyors in the UK.

Our valuations help to bring in more than £51 billion in revenue in local taxation which gets reinvested into the communities you live in. None of that would be possible without the great people we have at the VOA.

Join us and you could contribute to our important work in any number of areas, including:
• Business Rates: we value nearly two million commercial properties for Business Rates.
• Council Tax: deciding council tax valuation bands for 25 million domestic properties.
• Right to Buy: determining value for this initiative in England and Wales.
• Local Housing Allowance: setting rates of the allowance across England.
• Housing Benefit Claims: advising local authorities of the maximum subsidy level payable for claims.
• We undertake a wide range of valuations throughout the public sector, including asset valuation, compulsory purchase and development schemes.
