We are delighted to launch our search for the next ARLA Propertymark Vice President and NAEA Propertymark Vice President (VP).

The presidential team work alongside the Chief Executives in representing the industry in the media, meeting members face-to-face at events across the UK and highlighting key issues facing consumers and the industry.

Elected VPs will progress to President Elect before a year as President. As VP and as President Elect you will be called on from time to time to support the President for that year, for example external speaking events, media opportunities and Propertymark conferences etc.
