This is a unique opportunity for an ambitious Building Control Surveyor who is looking to progress quickly, with the view to takeover the reins of the current Office Manager within the next 1-2 years, who’s time is increasingly required elsewhere (a political figure within the BC industry involved with the likes of ACAI, Fire Safety groups etc.).

This AI is at the forefront of the industry with market-leading systems/support services however the Surrey office itself boasts an exciting portfolio of projects within the Surrey & West London areas. They have a 70/30 split (residential/commercial) however the residential work is all high-value (although not high-rise), so the projects are significantly more interesting than your typical domestic extensions etc.

Whether you are already at Management grade or have ambitions to progress into such a role given the opportunity, this could be the ideal position. Salary is not capped for the right individual and benefits are strong (Car/Car Allowance, 45p/mile on top, Private Health Care, Life Insurance, Performance Bonus etc).

Person Specification:
  • Proven relevant industry experience within a Building Control environment, carrying out plan checking and site inspections, whilst managing your own projects
  • Full of part Membership of RICS, CABE, CIOB (or equivalent)
  • Management experience preferable but not essential 
  • Thorough knowledge and application of Building Regulations, AI regulations and associated legislation
  • Ability to undertake basic structural appraisals of submitted designs, relevant to size of project
  • Full UK Driving Licence and use of a car
