071 Surveying Industry from a Female Perspective

This week Marion sat down with Rebecca Jenkins and Michaela Perry-Kay for a Women in Surveying chat.

Rebecca Jenkins is a Chartered Building Surveyor based in Sussex. The company, Sussex Surveyors, is based in Hove with offices in Haywards Heath, Eastbourne and, soon, Chichester. She spends most of her time working on party wall matters, writing specifications of works and inspecting defects in residential homes. She enjoys the personal interactions that take place as part of her work and believes that protecting our existing housing stock is important from both a sustainable and economical perspective.

Michaela Perry-Kay is a Chartered Building Surveyor with only 22 years left till retirement. She has Commercial Property sector experience and in recent years expanded into the residential market. She’s an SME warrior once having owned an RICS regulated firm. She craves for diversity in a profession that in 25 years thus far has failed to ‘Raise the Ratio’.
