Associate/Associate Director Surveyor - Residential Capital Markets - London

Job Description:

An opportunity exists for a full time Associate/Associate Director level surveyor to join the Residential Capital Markets (RCM) team based in our head office at Margaret Street, W1.

The successful candidate will be part of a dynamic team of approximately 40; comprising consultants, valuers, agents and financial analysts. The team deal in large scale residential development and investments, corporate mergers and acquisitions in the residential development sector, as well as advising landowners, institutions and corporates on increasing the value of land portfolios. The immediate team includes approximately five consultants who work across all of these service lines.

The vast majority of time will be spent liaising with two types of clients.

Firstly, we have a retained client who is one of the largest landlords in the UK. We provide ongoing professional advice from within RCM, and also lead and coordinate a much wider Savills team who provide valuation, research and building surveying services.

Secondly, we have retained clients who own portfolios of land with development potential. Our role is asset management and coordinating a much wider Savills team to provide the support the client requires via land agency, valuation, planning, economic development and masterplanning.

Furthermore, we have a range of institutional and corporate clients who are investing in residential developments and investments. The consultants within RCM advise these clients on how to create and extract best value from these assets. Often this work turns into agency services as well as formal valuation services.

As the sector and our team are growing at a rapid pace there are excellent opportunities for career progression. In addition, there are opportunities to learn new skills from colleagues, in particular, development finance, funding methods and financial models. RCM is recognised as an industry leader in this field which creates many opportunities to the right applicant.
