Working for HM Land Registry

We were created to register the ownership of land and property in England and Wales. We were set up to make conveyancing simpler, faster and cheaper. We've been innovating and improving registration processes, as well as safeguarding land and home ownership ever since.

Simplifying land registration; empowering our people

Our ambition is to become the world's leading land registry for speed, simplicity and an open approach to data. We have over 5,000 talented people working for us in 14 offices across England and Wales, each playing a vital role in building a modern, digital organisation.

From updating a register to supporting registration overseas, answering parliamentary questions to maintaining infrastructure, there's a role to suit you. We are proud of our diverse and inclusive working environment, and recent awards show that our commitment to staff is a way of life.

It's an exciting time to join us as our Geovation programme develops, and our staff conduct ground-breaking research via 'Digital Street', exploring cutting edge technologies, putting us at the forefront of global land registration innovation.

We're focused on improving the conveyancing process and enabling artificial intelligence, as well as innovation. For example this year's Geovation winners raised over £1 million worth of investment reimagining the use of our data to create innovative products for the property market.

Our apprenticeship programme has won the Gold award from the Learning Performance Institute

Flexible working, a positive atmosphere, and the opportunity for extra responsibilities are only a few of the benefits I've experienced working here. My team mates are helpful and I've learned a lot from them, as well as through more formal training packages and with the support of senior leaders.
