Why do we want to do this?

Over 85% of UK surveyors said they have problems recruiting due to a lack of qualified applicants (RICS, 2015). In fact, “the skills shortage has now overtaken planning and regulation as the second biggest problem facing the industry” (Telegraph 2017). In the USA, POB Magazine reported a shortage of surveyors, full stop! The FIG and the NSPS both launched young surveyors networks to support surveyors aged up to 35 – but there’s a more basic challenge: to generate interest in surveying as a career while kids are still in school!

Who are the surveying careers posters for?

Our fun A1/ US Standard 24×36 posters showcase some of the amazing jobs surveyors do. They’re aimed at kids aged 8-12, but are just as suitable for teenagers and adults. Also great for surveyor mums and dads to walk their children through the magical world of survey so they can explain what they do all day!
