The government is a huge service provider, with housing, construction and environment being big areas.

Local governments will employ workers from the property sector to develop and maintain public land or property. For example, government surveyors and planners are not only responsible for all buildings occupied by government departments and council housing, but they also oversee towns and cities to help them remain sustainable and inhabitable. This is achieved through advising them on suitable ways that will benefit the community such as making improvements on buildings, infrastructure the environment and energy efficiency.

Local governments will often advertise vacancies for chartered surveyors and planners, whenever they have new projects coming up. Being employed by a local government also allows employees to contribute to their local community. There a many benefits in working for the local government, such as generous leave, flexibility and extensive training.
