Our members explain what being part of RICS means to them: from career and networking opportunities to the value of trust, respect and professional ethics.
I qualified with RICS more than 12 years ago. Looking at the global applicability of professional and ethical standards, I thought there was a real chance to have a transparent development sector.
Being a member of RICS is seen by both international and domestic clients as a sign of trust and transparency. This is fundamental to what I do as a valuer.

After I passed my APC, I remember receiving numerous phone calls and emails from recruitment consultants.
Suddenly, in the eyes of organisations I had gone from being a quantity surveyor to a chartered quantity surveyor and I was more sought after.
I like to compare my RICS membership with the Premier League. It shows my clients I'm part of the world’s leading professional body, which gives them the confidence they are in good hands.
