Typical Employers of Surveyors


Surveying and Geomatics is one of the fastest expanding global markets. The discipline is driven by variables such as advances in technology, such as geographical information systems (GIS) and global navigation satellite systems, and maintains its role in land law and other socio-economic areas. Worldwide, the changing nature of mapping and spatial data management means there is significant demand for chartered land/geomatic surveyors.

Land/geomatics surveying skills are required in a multitude of organisations in both the private and public sectors. Employment opportunities exist in:
  • mining companies;
  • engineering contractors and consultancies;
  • specialist surveying and geomatics companies that provide services for areas such as property development, construction and heritage management;
  • utilities companies;
  • geophysics consultancy companies;
  • construction companies;
  • cartographic publishers;
  • mapping companies, including those working on relatively unmapped areas of the world;
  • local authorities and central government;
  • government agencies;
  • Ordnance Survey (OS) .

Some employers have only a small number of surveyors on their staff.
