There is a skills shortage threatening the future of the surveying profession.
In the recent RICS UK Construction and Infrastructure Market Survey, 66% of respondents in the UK reported shortages of quantity surveyors and with approximately 30% of the surveying profession aged over 50, it is imperative that we attract and retain the best talent from a diverse range of backgrounds.
