Your new role
As a Disrepair Surveyor you will lead on the inspection of various properties who are subject to disrepair claims - these are typically technical defects found within properties which may have caused structural issues within the property.

You'll receive an initial 6 month contract, and will receive an hourly rate which is negotiable dependent on qualifications and experience.
