Seeking Lease Advisory / Valuation Surveyor


To be based in our Brighton office.



We are looking to recruit a Chartered Surveyor to join our expanding Professional Team. You will be based at our head office in central Brighton and undertake work principally within Brighton, Sussex and the South-East. This is an exciting opportunity for you to develop your career within a well-established and respected regional practice of Chartered Surveyors and commercial property advisers.


Established in 1996, Flude Commercial has been operating successfully for over 20 years in Sussex and across the South East and specialises in providing Agency, Professional and Property Management services to a variety of landlord and tenant clients. The company has high standards and a long-standing reputation for quality service delivery.


The position is open to applicants with a range of experience levels, from recently qualified chartered surveyors with relevant experience, up to Director level.


We are active across a wide range of the commercial sectors and in particular offices, industrial and warehousing, business space, retail, leisure, healthcare and mixed uses including residential. The principal duties encompassed by this role include:
• Lease advisory work, including rent reviews, lease renewals and lease restructuring.
• Valuation work (Red Book and informal valuations, for a variety of purposes).
• Reinstatement Cost Assessments (for insurance purposes).
• Expert Witness work.
• Other general consultancy work to include development appraisals and rating.


Whilst knowledge of the commercial property market in Brighton & Hove and the wider Sussex area would be an advantage, Flude Commercial has an extensive in-house comparables database and active agency team with intimate market knowledge, so local experience is not essential.


The successful candidate should possess the following attributes:
• Qualified to MRICS and would ideally be an RICS Registered Valuer
• The ability to work well as part of a team.
• Proven ability to manage and organise own workload, including the ability to multi-task.
• Proven ability to maintain good relationships with a range of clients
• Excellent communication skills (both written and verbal).
• Good computer literacy, particularly with Microsoft Outlook, Word, Access and Excel
• Good mathematical skills.
• Accuracy, diligence and superior attention to detail.
• Honesty and integrity.
• Good problem-solving skills, and the ability to think laterally.
• Good negotiation skills.
• Driving licence.


What working with Flude Commercial will mean for you:
• As an independent company we are able to offer employees a varied experience in the different areas of Commercial Property, and increasing responsibility to help you develop your practical knowledge and achieve your potential within the field of commercial property.
• We offer a competitive salary and bonus package.
• We offer all employees individual training programmes including regular appraisals appropriate to their aspirations and objectives to provide you with a solid foundation to continue your professional development.
• You will be encouraged to use your own initiative, work independently to develop your own flair, knowledge and experience within the areas that you work.
• As a member of PAI (Commercial Property Network) – we are at once part of a larger countrywide organisation; a network of likeminded people and firms with all the associated benefits and a coverage larger than any one single firm currently trading in the UK. This enables us to service clients with property needs beyond the areas in which we work day to day.
• We are socially active and the whole company is welcome to participate. There are plenty of opportunities to take part in many sporting, charity and other social events with other professional firms in the South East. We encourage you to network to develop your own contacts.
