On 28th March 2019 Sava once again hosted the only careers event dedicated to the Residential Surveying industry. We were delighted to welcome over 300 delegates and exhibitors to the Ricoh Arena in Coventry for a day dedicated to future careers in the residential sector. This was the third careers event Sava has hosted and was the largest yet.

There were 30 exhibitors which included small, medium and large surveying firms plus a range of supporting services such as the Royal Institution of Chartered Surveyors and Landmark Valuation Services. The feedback received so far has been fantastic with surveying firms delighted to have met so many potential employees. Several roles were offered on the day with many more interviews in the pipeline.

Exhibitors included leading names from the sector, including Countrywide Surveyors, Connells, e.surv, SDL and Legal & General Surveying Services, as well as several medium size and smaller practices.

There was also a conference programme providing an insight into what it is like working for various sized firms across the industry.

The event was a true celebration of the residential surveying industry.

Sava’s Managing Director Austin Baggett said:

“Housing plays a crucial role in our economic and social success, and residential surveyors are at the forefront of looking after the UK’s 28 million homes. Sava’s objective is to help create the experts who have a holistic understanding of how these homes are constructed, how they can fail, and how they can be improved.  It was great to see so many of the major employers at the Careers Fair searching for new talent from the Sava diploma programme.  We’re already planning the 2020 Fair and look forward to welcoming everyone back!”

Joe Arnold of Arnold and Baldwin said “It was an amazing day! We were so busy I didn’t even get a chance to leave the stand to see who else was there!”

We would like to say a huge thank you to all exhibitors, speakers, Sava learners and all the other guests who contributed to the successful day.
