Role Category: Roaming

Role Category - the way you'll work:

This role is categorised as a roam role.  Roaming roles are a mixture of home and hub working with, in some instances, a degree of being out and about delivering services to customers. Your working day will be determined by what you need to do and where you need to go to maximise your productivity.  This means that you could start and finish your day in different places depending on what you need to do, so we’ll support you working from a variety of locations. 

The Role:

We have an exciting opportunity for an experienced Building Surveyor to join the Surveying Services team and offer a customer and resolution-focused surveying service.  

Reporting to the Surveying Services Manager, you will deliver a comprehensive technical surveying function, incorporating inspection, defect diagnosis, preparation of specification of works, major structural repairs through to completion, damp and mould, adaptations, customer-led alterations and emergency activities i.e., fire, flood and collision (such as vehicular impact) etc. to maximise effectiveness, customer satisfaction and financial performance. 

The Person:

You will be a highly motivated building surveyor with sound knowledge of building construction, CDM, health & safety, planning and building regulations. You’ll also have substantial technical surveying experience with a wide range of building ages and construction types, be excellent at managing workload, possess exceptional internal / external communication skills and be capable of building and developing strong relationships.

Whilst a property related degree and member of the RICS/CIOB would be preferred, you will have a HNC/HND level technical qualification in building surveying as a minimum.
You will have the initiative to hit the ground running. The work pace is fast, and a methodical approach and strong problem-solving skills are essential to maximise effectiveness in the role. 

The future is exciting, and we only want the best to be part of it.
