RVA Welcome New Trainee Surveyors


Seven new trainee surveyors have joined RVA Surveyors as part of the continued demand for its specialist business rates reduction services. Over the past 12 months RVA Surveyors has grown from 50 staff to 115, and the business expects to hit the 150 mark in the summer.


Richard Millington, who joined RVA as a trainee surveyor, will take the reins as RVA’s new surveyor trainer, supported by Clare Whitfield (head of surveying & operations), to train and deliver the company’s latest recruits ready to support RVA’s clients.


Richard Millington said: “The opportunities afforded for individuals to grow within RVA Surveyors, has allowed me to progress to where I am today. Now as I step up to my new role of developing the next generation of surveyors here at RVA, I have a chance to use transferable skills gained during my former career as a teacher.”


Clare Whitfield said: “The latest intake of budding surveyors are a highly motivated and intelligent cohort and we look forward to Richard guiding their progression from the classroom-based theory course, their first onsite property inspections to achieving reductions for our clients.”


Anthony Hughes, managing director, said: “It is fantastic to see Richard’s progress since joining as a trainee four years ago. In that time he has risen through the ranks and displayed the natural talent and temperament which has led him to become our new surveyor trainer. Our belief in recognising and promoting talent from within has played a major part in the success of the business. I’m sure our latest group of trainees will benefit greatly from both his and our experienced team of surveyors.”


Established in 2008, RVA Surveyors, a business rates Manchester-based company, who employ over 100 people, are one of the fastest growing business rates reduction specialists in the UK. With industry leading success rates they offer a no reduction no fee service.
