Salary: £30K p.a. pro rata to £35K p.a. pro rata subject to qualifications, skills and experience, plus pension scheme (subject to eligibility).

Usual hours will be 21 hours per week (occasional evening and weekend working will be required)

Opportunity for full time hours is possible


The Diocese of Plymouth is seeking to recruit two qualified and experienced Building Surveyors to provide professional advice and a high quality building surveying service to the parishes, focusing on the churches some of which are listed, schools, halls, parish social centres/facilities and the wider diocesan estate.

The Diocesan Property Office coordinate a programme of inspections, repairs and improvements to ensure proper standard of our buildings. This is realised through strong relationships with external contractors, builders, and architects. The Property Office is often a first point of contact with the parishes. Therefore, the successful applicants will play a lead role in the work of the Property Office, ensuring compliance with current building regulations.  They will contribute to the work of general facilities maintenance and areas such as compliance with Health & Safety and Environmental legislation, and will be involved in the specification, procurement, and monitoring of projects.

The successful post holder will be expected to represent and work in accordance with the ethos and mission of the Catholic Church in the Diocese of Plymouth to ensure the highest standards of property management are maintained and to promote the dignity of all those involved.

We expect the successful post holder to have the following:

  • Appropriate qualifications to degree level.
  • Chartered membership of the RICS or equivalent.
  • Experience of working in the construction industry.
  • An understanding of current building regulations and their practical implications.

Travel around the Diocese will be necessary and the post holder will have access to their own vehicle for which essential user mileage will be paid. The nature of the duties of the successful candidate are that it will inevitably on occasion be necessary to work outside these designated hours as the demands of the role require.

Closing date for applications: 21st October 2020
Interviews will take place on: 3rd and 10th November 2020
