The UK’s leading independent business rates reduction specialist, RVA Surveyors, has launched its first graduate scheme to strengthen its fast-growing team of surveyors.
The new initiative will see RVA Surveyors invest in up to 12 new graduate positions in 2022. As part of the RVA’s continued growth there are also positions in administration, operations, marketing, teleseale, account managers and business development, all of which will enable RVA Surveyors to meet the demand for its specialist business rates reduction services across England and Wales.
Driven by an influx of businesses seeking support in reducing their business rates liability, the ongoing recruitment drive has seen RVA Surveyors double the size of its workforce , having ended 2021 with a team of over 100. The business predicts that within the next five months they will have 150 employees.
Ongoing investment in RVA’s surveying team will also see a number of the business’ existing surveyors undertake qualifications through the Royal Institute of Chartered Surveyors (RIC’s) and Institute of Revenues Rating & Valuation (IRRV).
Clare Whitfield, Head of Surveying & Operations commented: “It’s fantastic to see the implementation of our graduate scheme and further growth of existing departments. Our collective drive to have the highest standards here at RVA Surveyors is continually being reviewed. This is another positive step building on what we have achieved over the last 12 months.”
Managing Director, Anthony Hughes also commented: “Our Graduate Surveyor Scheme is a direct response to our continued growth in the marketplace. As one of the fastest growing businesses in the North West and the fastest growing ratings agency in the UK, we support our clients with the best technical ability possible. The graduate investment will drive the business forward to over 150 heads in 2022. I believe our graduate scheme offers those leaving university who are looking to begin their career in surveying the very best grounding to succeed and develop their skills.”
