State of play in the property sector?
The property sector is thriving at the moment and there are a lot of exciting opportunities coming up every day - plenty of roles that need to be filled by the right people. The great thing about the property sector right now is that there are no specific boxes you have to tick to get your foot in the door. Mindset and drive are two of the biggest factors to your success.
The year 2020 shook up the whole world and businesses have found themselves in some really difficult spots. It’s not been all bad though - in fact, businesses everywhere have been getting more tech-savvy and turned to remote working, which has changed how lots of people think about the typical office.
We’re seeing co-working spaces become more common and bring in home comforts in a bid to set up a cosier and more collaborative environment for workers. Existing spaces are receiving renovations to be more up-to-date, drive productivity and meet the expectations of the modern worker.
As a result, there are opportunities from left, right and centre for those with project management and business development experience.
As for the housing market, property prices are skyrocketing at the moment and growing far beyond the average income, so it’s easy to see why most people are renting and why good quality, affordable housing is on everyone’s agenda right now.
Build to rent is one of the fastest-growing sectors in the UK. This is an exciting time to kickstart a career or take the next step as an investor or developer. Your skills are very much in demand!
