Contract Type
Full Time
My client are a well-established building surveying firm with a strong presence throughout Somerset, Devon and Cornwall. They operate from multiple offices in the region, mainly the cities and large towns as to give the best possible coverage to their clients.

They require experienced Chartered Building Surveyors to join their team as it continues to expand through the region. They cover a range of sectors but mainly focus on commercial and residential property. Candidates from Somerset, Devon and Cornwall are welcomed to apply, or alternatively candidates looking to re-locate to the region.


Their remuneration system is heavily bonus biased. In simple terms the surveyors have a guaranteed wage then receive a bonus at the rate of 70% on the fees they earn above a monthly threshold.

For example, if they bill circa £80,000 per annum they will have a gross pay of around £40,000. £90,000 in fees will gross around £47,000 pay.

The role is fairly flexible and has a split between office and home working. The role would suit an experienced building surveyor, who is perhaps considering a sole trader role but doesn't want the hassle of being self-employed. Also, individuals who have worked freelance or in a self-employed capacity who would be able to bring their own clients and workload onboard.
