Housing & Property Management

Apprenticeships in Housing and Property Management

With more people in the UK choosing to rent, the private sector lettings industry is in high demand. Estimates suggest 60% of privately owned homes are managed by property agents with the industry now worth over £6billion.

Social Housing is managed by Local Authorities and Housing Associations (for example). The rules and regulations are complex, but the career is interesting and rewarding.
