SENIOR BUILDING SURVEYOR

Who we are looking for

The position is for a Senior Surveyor.  It is not necessary for candidates to cover all areas of our work but a specialism in several of them and a working knowledge of the others would be considered essential for this role.

There is potential for significant career development for the successful candidate, in fact we are looking for a person who can demonstrate a desire to progress into a more senior position within the company.

We are therefore looking for a client-facing person who can demonstrate sound technical and communication skills, work in a team environment, is able to accept responsibility for receipt and successful delivery of client instructions, has good interpersonal skills, and sound commercial sense to develop new business opportunities.

We require the successful candidate to continue their personal professional development; be aware of the company’s health and safety policy; follow data protection and equal opportunities requirements, and make the directors aware if there are any non-compliance issues in these and any other relevant areas.

GRADUATE BUILDING SURVEYOR

Who we are looking for

We seek a Graduate Building Surveyor who can receive, discuss and agree instructions from a line manager regarding services to be provided. The ideal candidate will be able to plan and organise their workload with their manager, understand the need for profitability, and can manage their workload to meet targets of time taken versus fee earned.

Additionally, carry out whatever technical and other work may be required to be undertaken, follow specific technical systems and/or procedures e.g. building contracts, Practice Notes, when requested to do so, and to research and enquire about matters that the Graduate Building Surveyor is not familiar with.

The successful candidate will be capable of handling day to day liaison with the office, and display good communication and administration skills relevant to a Graduate Building Surveyor.

We require the successful candidate to continue their personal professional development; be aware of the company’s health and safety policy; follow data protection and equal opportunities requirements, and make the directors aware if there are any non-compliance issues in these and any other relevant areas.
