Surveyors are well known for working long and hard hours, and for being sociable and ‘playing hard’. Sometimes, though, our working lives don’t run smoothly and we can find ourselves affected by things we could not have predicted. You might be struggling to achieve a good work/life balance, which can lead to relationship problems. You may be coping with stress or bullying at work that is worrying you and making you anxious or ill. You may be about to be made redundant or struggling to get back into work after some time out.
We can support you with the following:
Grants are available if you meet certain criteria, like having less money coming in than going out on a regular basis, and if you are coping with difficult financial circumstances brought about by things like ill health or redundancy. We may offer one-off and regular grants. Our support officers may also help you arrange RICS concessions
Back to Work Scheme Our Back to Work service includes help with your CV, advice and guidance on how to prepare for interviews and making the most of online opportunities for help.
Counselling Our free counselling service will give you access to a qualified counsellor, who will work with you for up to ten weeks to help you through difficult times and find ways to cope better.
We can offer a range of support to help you make that next step in your career, from confidence-building to getting ready for interviews, and one to one coaching with our experienced support officers.
