Our client is a community benefit society providing over 3,000 homes across West Yorkshire for a variety of different types of households. They are a progressive social business with a strong purpose to tackle inequality and create opportunities for fulfilled, healthy lives, starting with a good home in a neighbourly community.

As the Senior Surveyor, you will help deliver customer focused planned and cyclical maintenance programmes, investigate and find solutions for complex repairs, and make a significant contribution to ensure that we meet statutory landlord duties.

Leading on the development of works and service specifications, you will take responsibility for the selection of suitable contractors to work in conjunction with the in-house team. You will provide a technical inspection / clerk of works service with regards to new build homes acquired from Developers and will act as the expert witness in disrepair cases.

The successful candidate will have significant directly relevant experience in housing maintenance services, including the delivery of planned maintenance programmes. You will have extensive experience of providing ‘assessments of condition’ and ‘wants of repair’ along with the ability to identify complex building defects.

A thorough understanding of project management techniques and approaches to ensure the timely and effective delivery of planned maintenance and development projects is essential. Due to the nature of the role, you must also possess a full UK driving licence.

Customers are at the heart of everything our client does. They strive to achieve excellence in delivering both external and internal customer services. Being customer focused and having the right attitude, drive and enthusiasm are key ingredients for this role.
