Building Inspector (Career Grade - Domestic to Specialist)

Hours: 37 hours per week

Contract: Permanent


Working in Building Control at North Somerset Council is a great place to balance a rewarding career with a quality home life. Located south of Bristol, it’s a scenic rural area with access to the coast and the Mendip Hills Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty. We have a thriving business sector with Bristol Airport and several large towns including Portishead and Weston-super-Mare, which all provide opportunities to work on complex commercial schemes.


This is an opportunity to continue your career with the option to work part time at an organisation that values the need to balance work and home life. Benefits include:

  • generous leave with up to 33 off days per annum
  • up to 12 additional days off per annum under our flexitime scheme
  • working primarily from home but with easy access to modern offices
  • support from a team of friendly colleagues
  • tax deductible electric vehicle lease scheme (via salary sacrifice)
  • entry into the excellent local government pension scheme
  • ongoing training and working within a modern and forward-looking organisation
  • support from the national Local Authority Building Control network


We are working hard to prepare for the new regulatory framework, and the additional responsibilities that the Building Safety Regulator will require. This includes updating all our job descriptions, expanding our admin support team and ensuring that all staff are supported in their training and preparation for securing a licence. 


Working under the direction of two principal inspectors and the manager, it will be your job to undertake the assessment of building regulation applications to ensure works on site comply with prescribed technical standards and approved details.  This career grade post is an excellent opportunity for both recently qualified and more experienced building control inspectors alike, who can demonstrate their competency to work unsupervised on domestic projects from the first day of employment. The starting salary will be dependent on your experience and proven competency (LABC Competency Matrix).


Apply now to join a group of likeminded, professionals who are dedicated to helping people and business thrive within quality developments.
