Senior Building Surveyor – (Expert Witness)
£50,000 – £60,000 + Bonus ( Minimum £20K) + Pension + Benefits
1 year to Director. 2 years to Equity.
Based Leeds, West Yorkshire
Are you a Senior Building Surveyor looking for progression to Equity Partner and more involvement in building the business?
We are a small, but very fast growing and profitable specialist provider of expert witness property surveys and reports to a panel of law firms. We are offering a genuine opportunity to two experienced MRICS Building surveyors to work on our increased work load and assist with the management of our expansion.
N.B. We are also looking for two lesser experienced building surveyors and one senior residential surveyor to join the team. Please contact us for more details.
We are a small, profitable and fast growing team that has been fortunate enough to carve out a niche provision of property surveying and reporting (Part 35) for an expanding panel of law firms. We are also working to expand on these services and provide our expertise to a non-legal client base, including both local authorities and residential homeowners.
We are a family business offering a friendly work environment that is team focussed and committed to growth. We have a spacious office on the outskirts of Leeds allowing for a safe and easily socially distanced work environment and we are also happy to offer flexible home working.
We were recently awarded a large contract that has doubled our workload and will run for at least the next three years. We also have other contracts at late stages we are confident of securing (from our own panel), so further growth is envisaged.
We need to strengthen our team with two senior, very experienced MRICS Building Surveyors that can deal with the extra workload and assist with general and expansion management. A directorship and equity participation will be the ultimate benefit of success for both surveyors.
