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 people take on wide-ranging work with major social impact. We value millions of UK properties - from airports to zoos. Our work underpins the collection of over £51 billion of local government taxation, so it's vital in funding the UK's public services such as schools and hospitals.

We employ approximately 3,600 people, with 43 offices across England, Wales and Scotland. If you chose to build your career with us, we will continue to invest in you and develop your skills, so that we build on what we already do well and deliver more in the future. Over the past year we have supported over 300 of our people to gain professional qualifications in operational skills.

We offer structured personal development, progression opportunities, and exceptional training with some of the most experienced professionals in our industry who are on hand to share their expertise and support. While we work hard, we respect your work-life balance, with flexible working conditions reflecting the best in the sector.

We're committed to inclusion and our simple aim is to be a great organisation to work for, and we make sure to deliver on our promise to be an inclusive employer. That makes the Valuation Office Agency a place where you can bring your whole self to work. It's also somewhere you can achieve your potential.

To qualify in my current role, I had to dedicate myself to studying alongside full-time employment. It was very rewarding when the hard work paid off. I now have a career path with professional status and a multitude of opportunities.

We take advantage of opportunities to develop and strengthen all our professions by encouraging our people to participate in a minimum of five days learning over the year.
