Post APC Webinars

So you've passed your APC and are now a fully fledged Member of the RICS - congratulations!

After all that hard work there's probably a mixture of relief, happiness, but - dare we say it - a little bit of 'what now?'

You've spent so long focusing on this one goal of getting through your APC that it's not surprising if you suddenly feel a little bit direction-less. Perhaps it helps to think of it as not being at the end of something, but rather at the start of the rest of your career. 

Many of the early career professionals we work with tell us that this can be a tricky time professionally. You have the letters after your name but feel there is still so much more to learn to fulfill your potential. 

That's why we have devised a range of webinars to help hone some of the softer skills that will benefit your career and professional development so you can feel more confident about the next steps ahead. They have been specially designed for those who are less than two years post-qualification - but may also be on benefit to RICS professionals later on in their career as well.

Take a look at the subjects below to find out more:

work life web400

Improve your work life balance


A better work life balance is what many of us strive for when it seems like there simply aren't enough hours in the day to juggle the various responsibilities and demands on time.  

Although many more people have found themselves working from home over the past couple of years, initially due to Covid-19 and lockdown restrictions, it's important to remember that working from home doesn't automatically equal a good work-life balance!

An increased move to flexible/hybrid working will have undoubtedly blurred boundaries for many people, especially if you've been working from your dining table or are always tempted to answer that one last email before you log off.

This 60-minute webinar aims to help you find a healthy and sustainable balance between work and leisure. You'll explore ways to manage that balance so you can be more effective, productive and engaged in all areas of your life, both at home and at work.


What's covered?

  • What is work life balance?
  • Misconceptions and assumptions of work life balance
  • The work life balance equilibrium
  • How to use the work life wheel to consider the different areas of your life - and assess what is off balance for you
  • Work life balance and the importance of self care
