Salary: £37,239 per annum

How would your friends describe you? Inquisitive? The problem solver in the group? Quick thinker?

Excellent!  We want you to join our team as a surveyor.

What you’ll be doing

As a surveyor, you’ll be surveying. Of course, you will but more specifically carrying out responsive property inspections in both domestic and commercial properties across the Wiltshire region. You’ll typically be out and about on your own, taking in the sights of Wiltshire, in conjunction with our automated scheduling system and workload.

You won’t just be doing that though there’s also: Response repair surveys, Mutual exchanges, Pre-Void termination surveys, Minor works surveys, Damp and Condensation & Mould to name a few.

At times you may also be responsible for overseeing minor works, refurbishment work, voids and general surveying. There’ll be plenty of opportunities for you to share your knowledge and advise on construction defects and the like, all helping us to ensure we deliver a great customer service.

You’ll work with your maintenance colleagues to schedule in repairs coming out of the work you’ve done, and you’ll keep customer experience at the heart of everything you do. Our customers will be a high focus for you, so you’ll ensure that the highest possible quality is provided through our services, meeting the requirements of best value and best practice, demonstrating excellent communication skills at all levels.

You’ll be working with Rob, our Contracts Manager mainly in the region of Wiltshire South but there may be times where you’ll also see what other areas of the group have to offer as the team work closely together; cross-working is key!

So, you’re going to need a vehicle to get you about for work and a full, UK driving licence too.


About you

You will have a relevant technical (HNC or higher) qualification in Building, Surveying, Planning or a similar technical field and have experience working in social housing.

You’ll mostly work alone out in our communities but there’s a team right behind you waiting for you when you get back to the laptop; being able to work independently and part of a team is key in this role. You’ll also be happy communicating with colleagues and customers frequently, either on the phone or in writing.

A strength will be your time management and you’ll be experienced in working to deadlines, and you’ll be really happy to manage your own time and workload.

You’ll be knowledgeable in current methods, standards and initiatives relating to repair and refurbishment of residential dwellings and you’ll be confident sharing your knowledge with others and keeping up to date with what’s new in your area.
