This company follows a simple set of values that focus on the people that make the business, and the people they work with, ensuring they understand the needs of their employees as well as their clients.

The proof is in the pudding with the average time served with the company well over the national average, and the ranks boasting equity partners who started as graduates less than 10 years ago.

The business works with a range of clients across the Greater London area, including Local Authorities, Housing Associations, Commercial Landlords, Hospitality clients and more. Due to continued demand for their services, the company is looking for a Senior Building Surveyor for their Public Sector team.

You will be responsible for project managing major regeneration works to school properties from inception to completion. Being a key client liaison and overseeing client brief, feasibility studies, specification, tender management and contract administration for a variety of education works including roof replacements, refurbishments (both internal and external) and extensions to existing structures.

You will also be responsible for delegating, instructing and shadowing junior members of the team during these projects, ensuring effective management of your time, the project and your team, as well as due diligence and sign off on other consultants work.

In addition to the basic, this company provides a car allowance of £5,000, private healthcare valued at £2,000 per annum, as well as a travel allowance of £1,000 a year.

On top of the financial benefits to the role, the company culture has always been one that is forward thinking in terms of work life balance. Pre-lockdown the business offered 1 day a week from home to all of it's employees following probation, and will look to increase that to two days once normality resumes. The company also accommodates flexible working hours to fit around a busy personal life.

You will have a minimum of two years of post qualification experience as a Building Surveyor or above and be able to demonstrate effective leadership, client management, and technical expertise in building pathology, NEC and JCT contracts, and CDM regulations.
