A bit about the role:


As Senior Surveyor you will be responsible for manging a team of five surveyors, allocating works to them and ensuring those works are being carried out in line with the organisation and residents’ expectations. You will have the technical knowledge to be able to support the surveyors with any queries they escalate and provide coaching or training as necessary. The work will focus on all projects that sit outside of the repairs team and not within any planned works programmes. This will include damp and mould issues, structural works and anything else deemed to be complex or a major works project.


The Senior Surveyor will need to build strong relationships with specialist contractors required to look at solutions to issues highlighted and work closely with colleagues such as the Project Managers and Senior Project Managers as they will ultimately deliver the works scoped out by the surveying team.

  • Experience of implementing quality systems
  • Experience of managing and administrating large and complex contracts delivering high volumes of multidisciplinary repairs to housing, offices and other building types
  • Experience of managing planned maintenance and/or major repairs – especially in respect of void works, elemental replacements, etc
  • Excellent verbal and written communications skills
  • Excellent Computer skills in Microsoft products, including Outlook, Word, Excel, PowerPoint


In return our client can offer:


  • A market leading salary
  • 35 days annual leave (Including Bank holidays) rising to 40 after 5 years. Option to buy or sell days
  • Flexible working, 2-3 days in the office
  • Paid volunteering days
  • Enhanced parental leave days
  • Attractive bonus schemes
  • Interest free loan schemes
  • Continued Professional development and more!
