Make your mark on our ambitious, global city

The challenge 

Bristol is booming. We’re currently transforming housing opportunities for our residents with the ultimate goal of regenerating the city so it becomes a blueprint for sustainable, diverse and inclusive renewal.

There is now an exciting opportunity to join Homes & Landlord Services, Repairs and Maintenance Service, where you will work with a team of dedicated construction professionals and deliver maintenance projects and essential repairs across the City.

The new posts of Graduate Surveyor offer posts across the service offer a fantastic opportunity for graduates to experience a dynamic and modern working environment, delivering essential services for a large client-side organisation supporting a considerable proportion of Bristol’s residents.

A graduate in Construction, Surveying, Engineering or other Built Environment related discipline, you will be responsible for assisting and developing specifications for planned maintenance work, completing disrepair and condition surveys, delivering programmes of M&E improvements, and everything in between.

With roles available in key Repairs and Maintenance teams, placements will be made depending on specific experience, qualifications and areas of professional interest.

Key qualities that we are looking for:

  • Knowledge of the building industry especially refurbishment projects
  • Knowledge of contract administration, project management, defect diagnosis and condition surveying
  • A relevant qualification in a construction, engineering, or other Built Environment related discipline
  • A willingness to continually develop and learn, keeping track with industry and technological developments
  • A willingness to take ownership in delivering essential services

Should projects and priorities demand you may also in future be required to work within any of our other repairs or planned maintenance and improvement teams.

Due to the need to travel effectively across the city and the requirement to carry tools and equipment this post is designated a regular car user; you must hold a full valid driving licence.


We're proud to be a city that is undergoing major change. Working towards communal goals, our people enjoy a uniquely collaborative and forward-thinking environment.

You’ll receive a competitive salary starting at £31,099 and progressing to £34,723, enhanced by flexible working options, generous holiday entitlement, and access to our desirable Local Government Pension Scheme.

We strive for an inclusive, high-performing, healthy and motivated workforce. To help us achieve this we offer plenty of flexibility to adopt agile working practices and family friendly policies. With the backing of a supportive management team and colleagues who are genuinely passionate about their work, you’ll have the chance to make Bristol a better place and contribute to its future.

In addition, you will be welcomed into a professional service which is undergoing a programme of professional realignment, allowing motivated staff to progress and develop their careers, supported by a professional and dedicated workforce, and the opportunities for further training and development.

For an informal discussion about these opportunities, please feel free to contact Miles Tilling, Planned Improvements Service Manager, 


At Bristol City Council, we value having a workforce as diverse as the city we serve. We therefore welcome, develop and promote people from all sections of the community. We particularly welcome applications from Young People, Black, Asian and Minority Ethnic and Female candidates who are currently under-represented within this Service of Bristol City Council.
