Your new company
This company has been established for over 2 decades and is now nationwide, based in eight locations across the country in strategic areas to take advantage of local developments. In addition to that they also partner with an international firm that allow them access to work in APAC territories.

The company remained strong throughout lockdown, they didn't furlough any staff and all staff remained busy, they were also able to take on 2 surveyors in that time to help grow the business. In short, this company is busy and will continue to remain busy in the immediate and distant future. The reason is that they have secured local and national work within the public sector and on framework agreements across education, healthcare, and residential sectors. If you were looking to move but having doubts about the security of the company you'd move to, then having a discussion with this business should alleviate any doubts.

Due to their continued growth, they are now looking for a Senior Building Surveyor to join their South London location - although under the present situation working from home (WFH) is being utilised.
