What is Rural Professionals Recruitment?

21 days ago by

Rural Surveying, Estate Management and Utilities are naturally linked to the Food and Agri supply chains where as a business we spend most of our time.

Max, Hannah and Miles cover the Rural Professionals desk at MorePeople, a team that is currently gaining momentum. They work with some of the best-known clients in the UK, the team have built strong connections in the rural sector and has an established, strong pool of professionals they speak to daily.

Some of the roles we recruit for are;

  • Rural surveyors – Graduate through to director level

  • Agri-business consultants

  • Forestry roles

  • Estate management

  • Farm business consultant

  • Wayleave

  • Valuers

  • Partners

  • Utilities

  • Aquation

All of these roles include the management of all elements of land, whether this being real estate property, forestry, fencing, water, public authorities, conservation bodies, estate management, shooting grounds, utility providers, trusts, charities, government agencies etc. As you know, the industry is broad and usually comes with a large love of the countryside and rural interests and sometimes includes the enjoyment of rural pursuits such as riding and shooting - much the same as our team here at MorePeople. We work with large national firms right the way through to the smaller rural firms, whatever your preference on lifestyle we can find something to suit you – many offer generous packages to help with relocation or any issues the candidate may have.


We work with both non and qualified candidates, some may be part-way through or have the option to complete qualifications as part of their package. Many rural surveyors become Chartered Surveyors. This is an Assessment of professional practice (APC) qualification completed after university, demonstrating they can perform professional and technical business skills within surveying. Another qualification is the Central Association of Agricultural Valuers (CAAV) which gives rural professionals the ability to act on various litigation matters in rural business around valuation. The rural professionals industry is the perfect industry for graduates, it has amazing career progression if that is what you are looking for. Due to the sheer volume of roles across the country, there will always be something for you. Let MorePeople help you on your first steps into an incredibly exciting career.
