I'm hoping to find work as a resi valuer at the moment. I'm had a good stint off work (5 years) while my children were young but am really keen to get back to it.
I am a chartered surveyor but haven't worked in this sector before. Am not sure about returning to work in my old sector/area as I would be gone from the house 7am-7pm on good days and longer on other days and as I'm divorced feel this would be hard on the kids. Am hoping if I could get into a valuers job that I could sometimes do the school run and make the time up in the evenings. However I think my salary potential would be a lot better in my old role and the job would be potentially more interesting (assuming someone gave me a chance to get back to it) and have more room to grow/do different roles.
I was wondering if there are any valuers around who could tell me a bit about their jobs.
