This full time, permanent role is available immediately

Summary of the role/position

The University of Exeter is seeking to recruit a Chartered Building Surveyor with significant and demonstrable post-qualification experience to act as a building surveyor in Estate Services. Consideration may be given to the candidate who, whilst not yet chartered, can demonstrate relevant HE experience in project delivery and who is registered with the RICS or CIOB and will sit their relevant professional exams within 12 months, following appointment.

Based on the Streatham Campus, this post offers the opportunity for the successful applicant to build upon existing surveying and management skills.

You will undertake the delivery of complex projects and be responsible for leading multi-disciplinary teams in Estate Services, together with some maintenance works. Estate Services also has significant responsibilities for organising planned maintenance to the estate, with values typically in the range of £5k to £1m. You will be expected to advise on technical matters and deal with general estate issues relating to such planned and reactive maintenance.

Candidates will be able to demonstrate their recent experience, comprising the delivery of reactive maintenance works, typically from £5k to £50k and refurbishment projects up to the value of £1m. Experience of working within multi-disciplinary teams would also be an advantage. Remuneration will be competitive within the market and commensurate with qualifications and experience.

The successful applicant will be required to take responsibility for other members of the surveying team, such as junior surveyors or clerks of works and must be able to work under his/her own initiative.

Please ensure you read the Job Description and Person Specification for full details of this role.
