No two days are the same with Brighton & Hove City Council’s Building Surveying team. If you want diversity in your surveying work and are looking to further develop your existing skills then we have fantastic opportunities for you to contribute to the unique City of Brighton & Hove.

There are so many great reasons to work in Brighton & Hove: reduce your carbon footprint, reduce time spent commuting and get a genuine work / life balance. Our team members enjoy the benefits of flexible working, enabling them to fit work around caring for loved ones, nursery/school drop-off & collection times, personal matters and fitness/hobbies. For more information about the Council’s flexible working policy and core working hours, please see our website:

From rectifying defects to full refurbishment and long-term programmes of planned maintenance work; the surveying team look after a variety of buildings. You will get the chance to work on school buildings, social care premises, the Council’s civic and operational stock and the City’s vast array of historic structures. This post is a chance for you to contribute to our City in a positive and meaningful way.

We need a team player who has good leadership and person management skills, is strong on Health and Safety, confident on AutoCAD, have monitoring contractor and performance on site skills, a flexible approach, good communication skills with the ability to work under pressure in our trusted, busy team of professionals.

We remain sustainably independent as we generate fees through the works we manage. Always busy, we continue to secure further programmes of work and need to fill this post with the right person.

A message to you from one of the team ‘Having worked for BHCC for just over three years now, there is one thing that has struck me – the variety of work. From the Brighton Centre to schools, the seafront and historic clocktowers, I have carried out repairs, maintained and restored such a varying degree of construction types. No project ever feels daunting as there is a wealth of experience in our team, that I know I can rely upon for support and advice whenever needed.’

Avoid the daily commute and work within the City of Brighton & Hove.

You will enjoy a package of benefits including:

  • a healthy work life balance with flexible working hours
  • reimbursement of professional fees (RICS or CIOB)

  • generous annual leave
