As an associate / senior associate building surveyor in the London office you will be responsible for three key elements within the business, consisting of service delivery, business development and growth, and team management and development.
You will manage a small team of surveyors, from graduate to senior level, delegating responsibilities, promoting collaborative working and ensuring quality of service to secure client satisfaction.
You will also be given the incentive to generate revenue streams by identifying potential clients, maximising service avenues with existing customers and securing future business.
You will be involved in both project and professional work, with a project bias as follows:
New build student accommodation / build to rent projectsCommercial (office, retail, leisure) conversions (up to 90,000 sq ft) Major refurbishment projects (internal & external) to hospitality, office and retail propertiesMajor extension projects (retail, office, leisure, hospitality etc)Opportunity for exposure to development monitoring on behalf of investorsCAT A & CAT B fit-outs

You will be joining a motivated, established and inclusive team with a mixed level of experience. Benefiting from the guidance and support of two office partners, and the opportunity to lead a team of senior, chartered and assistant building surveyors, this role will reward you with great exposure to senior management, hands on management support, and progression opportunities through a structured promotion plan which will be developed with your input.
Other rewards include the following salary level, financial benefits and other perks:
- £65 - 70K salary
- Employer matched 5% pension
- Discretionary bonus (based on overall annual contribution as opposed to solely fee focused)
- Company car or car allowance
- Flexible benefits options ( health-care, dental, cycle to work, season ticket loan and more)

In addition to the above, you'll be joining in time to catch the crest of the wave at a business that has been through a transformation over the last 5 years, and has evolved into a progressive, modern business, that rejects aggressive competitive corporate modes of working for collaborative, employee focused working practices.
This role requires excellent knowledge of commercial building surveying, specifically technical due diligence, dilapidations and contract administration (tradition JCT Suite) so a commercial background will be essential to adapt quickly to this position.
As this position is a team management role, previous experience of managing one or more building surveyors in a private consultancy environment is preferable, with a minimum of two years experience working as a senior building surveyor or higher.
You will also need to be:
- Commutable to either City of London or West End
- A full member of the RICS, or within 12 months of your assessment.
- Eligible for work in the UK
- Holder of a full UK driver's license or equivalent as a vehicle will be required for this role.
