Lancaster City Council is pleased to offer this exciting new opportunity to further your career by joining its Building Control Team.

If you are dedicated to safeguarding the protection of our communities by insisting on high standards of construction practice and helping to deliver buildings that are energy efficient and climate-resilient, then we want to hear from you.

We are looking for a building control professional who can demonstrate an extensive knowledge of all aspects of building control and ancillary legislation.  You will have considerable experience of responsibility for site inspections and plan checking.  Your ability to be innovative in terms of problem solving will be an essential requirement of the role.

You will help contribute to the delivery of a positive, commercially focused and forward-thinking building control customer service, therefore your communication and relationship building skills are key to this post as you seek to foster constructive relationships with developers, architects and builders.  You should also be able to demonstrate precision in terms of maintaining records.

You must have corporate membership of RICS, CABE or CIOB or a similar professional/industry body.

A full current UK driving licence is essential, as the post holder will be required to visit building and development sites as part of the role.

The hours of work for this position are 37 per week, working at Morecambe Town Hall (although currently, remote working arrangements are in place).  Occasionally you may be required to undertake standby duties to cover emergency out of hours work.  The Council currently operates an excellent Flexible Working Hours Scheme which applies to this post.  Subject to the needs of the business, this may allow employees to work between the hours of 0600-2230.
