AssocRICS Residential Surveyor - Home Based


Full time and part time positions available.


 Due to exciting growth plans we have vacancies across the country. Please contact us to find out when we’re planning to open an A&B branch in a town near you!

Whilst our Head Office is located in South London, our reach is expanding across the nation. All back office functions are taken care of by our fantastic team at HQ, allowing our Surveyors to get the most out of their working day. Our cutting-edge technology means you can work anywhere in the country, all the while feeling fully supported each and every day by our growing team of honest, approachable experts. Thanks to the communication platforms and live access to the entire team, home working has never been more interactive and inclusive.


We believe we pay above average salaries and bonuses. Depending on where you are in the country, there is the potential for you to join us as a fully employed member of the team, or if you’d prefer, on a more flexible ‘fee split’ basis. We have full time and part time positions available.

For A&B employees, base salaries are negotiable and depend on experience. We offer a generous and achievable bonus scheme which is paid monthly with your salary. We can demonstrate how this will be calculated at interview.



We offer so much more than a competitive salary. Standard benefits include 25 days holiday per year and a mobile phone which you can use for personal local calls. We also get one ‘duvet day’ per year which can be used as unplanned annual leave. We all have our birthdays off if it falls on a working day and A&B also provide a pension scheme.

Private medical insurance is included within the package, as are all fees for your relevant subscriptions, CPD and APC training to achieve MRICS/FRICS status.

Is there something else that’s important to you?

A higher pension contribution? Adding family members onto your medical insurance? Extra holidays? A specific company car? Please discuss this with us. As an owner managed business we appreciate the importance of flexibility and meeting the needs of our employees. One of the reasons we have attracted such an amazing team is our flexible approach to building a bespoke package, tailored specifically to you. What do you want out of your next role? Let us know and we will do our best to meet your expectations.

Professional, efficient surveyors. Get the job done in a timely manner, had our survey back within 5 days of inspection. All team members I spoke with (Tiffany and Billy) were really lovely. Highly recommend. :)


I have only just started working with Stephen and he has already demonstrated the high levels of customer attention and dedication that this company has. The first impression he has caused is such that made me write this review. I have no doubt that the continuous service will be of same level. Looking forward to working further with Stephen. Well done!

Steve Kenny

Lease extension - I found Daniel Grove very professional and had an excellent understanding of all aspects relating to this transaction. Advice was invaluable, and it was nice to come across someone who did exactly what they said they were going to do. Would not hesitate in recommending the firm and Daniel to anyone who has a lease to extend.

Petros Kyrkilis

Amazing job and fully professional treatment. The surveyor went above and beyond to check for everything, when he could have easily claim lack of access. In addition he was more than happy to answer questions over the phone and be there to explain the steps.

Lynn Wilson

Within 48 hours I received my detailed report from Joe Arnold which enabled me to see the property as it was and not through rose-tinted glasses! The report highlighted areas where money might need to be spent and provided guidance on questions for my solicitor - just what I needed. Overall, the survey enabled me to re-assess my offer and in this respect was invaluable. Thank you for a friendly and professional service.

Mark Roberts

100% choose this company. As first time buyers we had a mortgage valuation which said the house was fine. The Arnold & Baldwin survey found over £30,000 of problems. Holes in the roof with daylight visible, damp, woodworm, broken sash windows and poor electrics. This company helped us renegotiate and save a fortune.


Arnold & Baldwin came recommended and I’ve got to say they were brilliant - not just in identifying issues with the property I was looking at but in the way they kept me informed and up to date (ie picking up the phone instead of just posting / emailing communications with you). After dealing with estate agents for so long, it’s nice to have someone who is genuinely on your side.

Kamal Rahman

From my initial interaction with the firm I found them to be prompt, courteous and helpful. I received a detailed Homebuyers report within a week of instructing and was given the opportunity to talk it through with the attending surveyour. Overall excellent service all round, would certainly recommend this firm.
