On behalf of a genuinely fantastic employer, Scantec are seeking a remote-based Building Control Surveyor to be based anywhere within the home counties and surrounds. Suitable for applicants based in and around Surrey, Sussex, Berkshire, Oxfordshire, Buckinghamshire, Hertfordshire, Essex, Kent.

This opportunity is with one of the most wellbeing focused approved inspectors in the industry which is evident in their extremely high staff-retention. This role in particular covers multiple counties therefore they strictly limit your ‘site visit days’ to 1 (max 2) per week to ensure you aren’t over burdened with travel. That aside, they have very approachable and personable Directors so although they are a well established and growing business, they are still able to provide a ‘family-feel’ environment.

The Role:

The role encompasses both plan checking and site inspections with a good balance between residential and commercial (for those without prior Commercial experience, there is opportunity to start on smaller scale and progress towards more complex at a pace that suits). The opportunity is open to Surveyors of all grade, whilst those with less experience/working towards Chartership will receive full support/training from Director's. 

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)
  • 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
