For the right candidate there is potential for excellent career progression. As part of your role you would work on a varied portfolio of Valuation engagements and get involved in activities to support the wider team. Our main Valuation teams are based in London and Manchester. Although our team is largely London based, we operate as a national team and many of our engagements involve multi-national clients. There would likely be travel within the UK and potentially overseas travel from time to time.
