Career benefits packages at Arnold & Baldwin

When considering a change of employer or a new career, it is important to consider the benefits that are available to you. It is worthwhile pausing and having a think about what is truly important to you in your next role. Your own experiences will have shaped your life up until today and it is crucial to consider what you would like to get out of your next role, to ensure you have a happy working life. By following this advice it might help you build a long lasting career with a company who shares your values. It might be you are looking for a friendly supportive team, career development opportunities, broadening your knowledge base, or being part of something exciting and fulfilling. However you are feeling right now, it is important to make sure your next move is the right fit for you and your future employer.

Sometimes people choose a new role based on money alone. Often what you find is the higher the financial package, the more pressure you may have to fee earn as your employer will need you to be a commercially viable investment. At Arnold & Baldwin we offer so much more than a competitive salary.

For example, our Managing Director, Joe Arnold, is heavily involved with the Royal Institution of Chartered Surveyors. He is on the Residential Survey & Valuation Working Group, and the Residential Survey Standards Working Group. He is also on a key cross industry stakeholder working group which feeds directly into Government on the home buying and selling process. This enables us to have insight into market trends and future initiatives allowing us to keep at the forefront of the industry. It also means we network with senior figures in the industry, which enables the team to also share access to a great professional network of advisors and leaders.


Technology is shaping the future of the industry. Arnold & Baldwin was one of the early adopters of iPad technology and has been using them for site note collection since 2013. This has resulted in approaches from clients and other businesses considering future technologies in Fintech.

These are just a few examples of how the business is positioned in the industry. By considering what you are looking for out of your career, you can align yourself to a company who is moving in the direction you would like to travel in.

The benefits package we offer is fantastic. It also includes 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 for everyone and private AXA PPP medical cover for qualified surveyors.

All fees for your relevant subscriptions, CPD and APC training to achieve MRICS/FRICS status are also included. Each team member is encouraged to further their career with courses such as Party Wall Awards and Expert Witness training.

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!

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.

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.

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.
