Over 85% of UK surveyors said they have problems recruiting due to a lack of qualified applicants (RICS, 2015). In fact, “the skills shortage has now overtaken planning and regulation as the second biggest problem facing the industry” (Telegraph 2017). In the USA, POB Magazine reported a shortage of surveyors, full stop! This is a global problem. The FIG and the NSPS both launched young surveyors networks to support surveyors aged up to 35 – however there’s a more basic challenge to be addressed: to generate interest in surveying as a career while kids are still in school!
#GetKidsintoSurvey plan to tackle this head on with a clear mission – to educate and excite the next generation of surveyors through fun and educational content, material and media. With the help of Brand Sponsors and Ambassadors around the world, the community can make the bigger difference and succeed in this mission together.
