BUILDING SURVEYOR MANAGER - POST 18.030
We seek a qualified building surveyor to lead a team of three responsible for the day-to-day repair and management of programmed works to 230 predominantly commercial properties.
The workload is dynamic and varied. Council projects in the pipeline include a new build crematorium, an extension to historic Museum buildings, and repair work to the listed Guildford House and iconic Guildhall. Your role will oversee major works or manage external project managers and inherit the good work of your predecessor in launching new framework contracts for statutory compliance suppliers and condition surveys. The team is constantly busy and so the role suits someone who can work under pressure, can delegate and motivate staff, and is very organised.
Technical experience in commercial properties is essential as are excellent communication skills required to liaise with client services, external tenants and asset managers. Strong numerical skills and proficiency in MS Excel will help you prepare and monitor budgets accurately. You must be a strong team player whilst being capable of working on your own initiative.
You should be educated to degree level or equivalent standard and be RICS qualified or equivalent.
For an informal discussion about the role please contact Marieke van der Reijden, Asset Development Manager on 01483 444995.
Initial interviews will be carried out by telephone.
