Contract Type
Full Time
Job Title:Building Surveyor
Location:Midlands but covering UK
Salary: £38k - £45k plus company car

The Opportunity
We're looking to give an enthusiastic, ambitious Building Surveyor the chance to develop our estate. We're a large, UK-wide retailer with an independent store feel and a focus on high quality works, the perfect place to pursue your surveying career with a big name behind you.

The Role
As our new Building Surveyor you'll travel around the UK visiting our estate (which currently stands at around 300 stores and cafes) to ensure the sites are fit for purpose and a true reflection of our emphasis on quality. We're not the cheapest shop on the high street and our customers come to us because they expect a good atmosphere and excellent service, our shops need to project this image.

Your Building Surveyor role will concentrate on acquisitions, capital works, dilapidations and disposals across the UK. Reporting into the FM & Commercial Manager and working closely with the Head of Shop Development you'll assess sites, compile and oversee management of works, supervise the suppliers and contractors and direct PPM plans, fabric and small works in conjunction with capital programmes.

As with most Building Surveyor positions there is a strong element of commercial management involved in the role. You'll carry out financial and budget analyses, negotiate supplier SLAs and develop estate strategy and long term goals.

The Candidate
If you're a commercially-astute Building Surveyor looking for their next challenge we'd like to hear from you.

To be able to hit the ground running you will need a degree (or equivalent) in a relevant discipline such as Building Surveyor or Construction Management. If you're a Chartered Building Surveyor that would be a huge benefit.

We pride ourselves on giving our staff scope to develop within their positions and so we will seek out your innovative streak and ability to work confidently independently.
Obviously this role will involve a lot of travel so you must enjoy being on the road, meeting different people and seeing Britain's finest countryside.

The Company
We're one of the UK's largest high street retailers with around 300 stores and cafes across the country and overseas. Despite being a large organisation we pride ourselves on having a close relationship with our customer and internally we operate more like an independent business. Our employees are given a lot of autonomy and are encouraged to suggest new ideas to drive the business forward.
