The opportunity

Are you a highly motivated Building Surveyor, with a successful track record in managing repair, refurbishment, and fit-out projects within an extensive property portfolio?

As our Regional Building Surveyor for the South East region, you'll manage our Retail Division's property portfolio in the South East of England, spanning 150+ leasehold shops and stores. This region includes Hampshire, Sussex, Kent, Greater London, Essex, Oxfordshire, and Buckinghamshire. Additionally, you’ll support stores nationwide to meet emergent requirements.


You’ll deliver a full range of building surveying services, both reactive and planned maintenance, including:

  • Leading diverse projects, from essential repairs to rejuvenating refurbishments and exciting fit outs
  • Managing contract and tender documentation
  • Fulfilling CDM duties, including being Principal Designer

  • Overseeing building maintenance
  • Performing acquisition and disposal surveys
  • Offering dilapidations advice

A highly effective team player, you'll have strong interpersonal, influencing, and decision-making skills.

You'll have extensive experience in all key aspects of traditional building surveying disciplines, including acquisition surveys, defect analysis, building pathology, dilapidations, fit-out design, and contract administration, ideally with a focus on developing and maintaining a large retail estate.
