London leads the way for estate agency job opportunities

Estate Agents should not all look the same

Leading property recruitment specialist, Rayner Personnel, has taken a look at which city currently offers the best chance of getting back on the horse for estate agency professionals made redundant during the current pandemic.

Rayner Personnel looked at the average number of ‘estate agent’ jobs currently listed across the major recruitment portals within a 15-mile radius of 23 major cities.

The figures show there are some 2,112 estate agency roles currently looking to be filled across these cities, roughly half the level of job opportunities when compared to pre-lockdown levels.

As you may expect, the capital accounts for the vast majority of available estate agent jobs, with 55% of jobs across these 23 major cities listed in London.

To put London’s dominance for property job potential into perspective, Birmingham is home to the second-largest number of jobs but accounts for just 4% of current positions open to applicants.

Manchester and Leicester also rank high, but again these cities are home to just 3% of all estate agent jobs listed across these 23 major cities.

The hardest spots to be searching for an estate agency role at present are Aberdeen, Plymouth and Belfast, with these cities accounting for just 0.1% of current jobs available each.
