Summary

Do you feel motivated by a role that is varied and diverse? Can you be one of our building surveying experts, and deliver outstanding buildings conservation, development and maintenance work, time and time again? Do you love the idea of working as part of a top-class team of conservation professionals, on a variety of very special places?

We’re looking for a professional Building Surveyor, preferably with conservation expertise and an up-to-date approach to building surveying, to help look after our special places. These places come with some fascinating conservation challenges, but also exciting opportunities to drive forward further improvements to our visitor infrastructure. The chance to make a difference on this scale doesn’t come along every day.

Salary range is £32,304 - £34,366 depending on experiences.

Provisional interview date is 29th April 2019.

What it's like to work here

Mansion house roofs in decline and historic cottage walls under daily attack from the weather. They are not your everyday buildings, not your average building issues. But then we do look after an extraordinary range of places and spaces here at the National Trust.

In a day and age where speed and costs are normally paramount, knowing that the quality and attention to detail of our building works isn’t compromised is immensely satisfying and personally challenging.

What you'll be doing

Working out of our Hardwick Consultancy Office you’ll be part of the National Trust Consultancy offering technical buildings advice and support. Primarily working in the Peak District covering the Dark Peak and White Peak, you’ll be our Building Surveying expert, using your know-how to safeguard the future of these incredible places while helping more and more people to enjoy them. From insightful advice, through practical support, to day-to-day operations and projects of a variety of scales and complexity, you’ll help these properties achieve sustainable standards of building conservation, repair and maintenance. Specifically, we’ll look to you to play a leading role in the delivery of a range of work relating to property improvement, short term cyclical work, new build, or one-off sensitive conservation projects. But most importantly, as an enthusiastic, convincing champion of best practice, you’ll bring new thinking and novel approaches to whatever building work you turn your hand to.

Who we're looking for

  • Bringing buildings to life is what excites you, and you’ll love the challenge of helping colleagues to tell their properties’ stories while inspiring visitors. A technically-impressive and professionally-accredited surveyor who has MCIOB or MRICS or equivalent, you’ll already have an impressive knowledge of building conservation, philosophy and repair
  • Experienced in project delivery, including writing specifications and contract management. Confidently sharing your expertise, insight and ideas with colleagues, you’ll effortlessly build strong working relationships across the region.
  • You’ll also need your own vehicle and a full driving licence (we’ll pay you a mileage allowance) as you’ll be required to travel between properties.

It’s about more than just going the extra mile but really believing in it. Every day, everything that you do will help to wow your colleagues and create a truly unforgettable experience for our people.
