Searching for estate agent jobs? Then let us guide you through some of the requirements for the role, and also what you can expect from an estate agency job.
There are a variety of roles to choose from, including lettings consultant, sales negotiator and branch manager to name a few.
It will come as no surprise that experience in a sales job will definitely be beneficial when applying to estate agent jobs. However, it is often not a necessity, with many employers choosing to hire trainee estate agents, with a view to training them up themselves.
What you will certainly need is a full and clean UK driving license, and your own vehicle. This is because estate agents are expected to travel independently to conduct house viewings on a daily basis.
Estate agent jobs are almost entirely customer facing, so you will also need excellent interpersonal skills and customer service aptitude. A good understanding of standard IT processes is another must-have, as is a good level of organisation - you'll have a lot of customers to look after through their buying process!
What You Can Expect
The typical salary for estate agent jobs is between £15,000 and £20,000, and there is usually a commission structure on top of this to boost your on-target earning potential. You may also have a company car and company phone - though these packages are usually reserved for more senior or experienced estate agents.
You should also expect your working pattern to include some Saturdays - though this tends to mean that you will have a day off in the week to make up for this!
Estate agent jobs are very varied, with many roles including both property lettings and sales. You'll be meeting new customers on a daily basis, and guiding them through the sales process from start to end. It's not a job where you're stuck behind a desk all day - quite the opposite! You'll be regularly visiting properties for viewings, to take photographs and assist the valuer - so it's perfect if you want a little travel - but not the distances of a field sales job.

Do you have the gift of the gab? Are you well travelled and looking for an exciting new position? Do you have a proven track record in sales? Then this is for you! The Job: As a travel manager you will be dealing with incoming telephone calls from both business and leisure travellers. Creating worldwide holidays and business trips with an exceptional level of customer service applied. You: *...
