We define value in terms of our people: high quality training, interesting and varied work, and a balance with life outside of work.

Our surveyors take on wide-ranging work with major social impact. We value millions of UK properties, from airports to zoos. Our work underpins the collection of over £50 billion each year to help fund public services. And while our focus is public, the mind-set and pace are distinctly business orientated.

Along the way, your personal development is properly structured, progression is actively supported, exceptional training is available, and some of the most experienced professionals in the industry are on hand to share their expertise. And while we work hard, we respect your work-life balance, with working conditions reflecting the best in the sector.

That’s our definition of value.

Defining Value through our people

We employ approximately 3,600 people, with 43 offices across England, Wales and Scotland. If you chose to build your career with us, we will continue to invest in you and develop your skills, so that we build on what we already do well and deliver more in the future. Over the past year we have supported over 300 of our people to gain professional qualifications in operational skills.

We offer structured personal development, progression opportunities, and exceptional training with some of the most experienced professionals in our industry who are on hand to share their expertise and support. While we work hard, we respect your work-life balance, with flexible working conditions reflecting the best in the sector.

We're committed to inclusion and our simple aim is to be a great organisation to work for, and we make sure to deliver on our promise to be an inclusive employer. That makes the Valuation Office Agency a place where you can bring your whole self to work. It's also somewhere you can achieve your potential.
