Working for the Valuation Office Agency

Our valuation work covers every domestic and commercial property in England and Wales. We're proud to have helped millions of people to pay the correct property taxes and receive the right financial support.

Defining value through our people

Our work at the VOA is relevant to every person every day. From the home you live in, the premises you work in, the restaurants you eat at and even places you might visit for a weekend out – a zoo, or a football stadium – we're responsible for valuing all of these properties.

Our valuations help to bring in more than £51 billion in revenue in local taxation which gets reinvested into the communities you live in. None of that would be possible without the great people we have at the VOA.

We have around 3,600 people working all over the country. From customer support specialists to valuation experts – our staff are all equally valued and given opportunity to develop, thrive and most importantly, be themselves. We are also one of the largest employers of chartered surveyors in the country.

With support from my colleagues and the organisation I’ve worked my way up from rent officer to Chartered Surveyor and completed a degree in Estates Management. I was even helped with phone calls on Saturdays to prepare for my final exams. Everyone was so helpful in supporting my development.
