Graduate Case Study: Tony Rogers.
Tony enrolled on a course for the Diploma in Residential Surveying and Valuation in February 2015, giving up his career in marketing to pursue a career in property surveying.
“In my previous role I couldn’t stand waking up in the morning. I worked in marketing; it was stressful and it wasn’t for me. I made the wrong decision as an 18-year-old so, for me, later on down the line I knew what I wanted out of a career and that’s when I made the decision to become a surveyor. I knew salary-wise it would work out for my family, and my father-in-law is a surveyor so he recommended it.”
Tony graduated from the SAVA School of Surveying in 2016, completing the course in just 18 months, and has since secured himself a position with Valunation, the residential surveying division of the Spicerhaart Group, the UK’s largest independent integrated property group.
“Right now I do two valuations a day and I’m enjoying it so far. I would recommend the course to others. As long as you’re willing and you’ve got the drive to do it you can be achieving good money at the end of it.”
