A day in the life of a Bell Ingram Land Agent - by Sarah Tyson, Head of Valuations

Variety is the spice of life for Sarah Tyson, Partner in Perth’s Rural Land Management Department.

Spread across 10 offices, our land agents in Scotland and the north of England oversee many hundreds of thousands of hectares across our clients’ private and corporate estates, dealing with anything from property sales and valuations to managing estate staff or dealing with nature conservation issues.

While life out of the office is perhaps the most interesting part of the job, an office-based day still involves many different tasks and liaison via telephone and email with the wider team involved in each project.

The number and spread of jobs on the go at any one time means it is important to be a quick thinker and have the ability to switch between tasks.

To give you a feel for the variety the job has to offer and demonstrate the extent of what we can do, we take you through a typical working day in the office for experienced Land Agent, Sarah Tyson.

Land agents are certainly Jacks and Jills of all trades, covering a breadth of geographical locations, types of work, people encountered, knowledge bases and challenges.

Whether you are a landowner, tenant or professional adviser wondering who can help you out with a property issue, get in touch with your local office – one of our team will probably have experience of exactly your issue.

If you are considering a career in rural property, drop an email to enquiries@bellingram.co.uk  telling us a bit about yourself and your aspirations. We are happy to consider those looking for a change of career as well as those seeking graduate opportunities – a lot of land managers started their working life in a different job!
