Some are involved in looking after other's land, such as the iTaukai Land Trust Board or as the property Manager for a company, or government which owns a substantial portfolio of properties. Another growth area for graduates is in property portfolio management with the larger financial institutions and superannuation funds.
Housing development and management is a field in which land managers have appropriate skills and many graduates are involved in planning and development in both the public and private sector.

They are also involved in the design and implementation of property development projects. Land Managers are increasingly involved in computerised property management systems and Geographical Information Systems (GIS).
Land Managers need to be interested in people and their environment. They should like creative and analytical work and be able to communicate logically and effectively both orally and in writing. They must have the ability to communicate with other specialists.
