The Estates Department comprises a high performing team of estate professionals that continues to manage and develop an impressive estate.  The Maintenance function is well established with growth planned in staff numbers to support both recent and planned growth of the University and the estate – not least the addition of a Medical School, the Centre of Excellence, innovative research buildings and c.3,000 new student accommodation spaces.

The Senior Building Surveyor will play a significant and influential role in the University’s Maintenance Team and will line manage and provide leadership to a team of specialist Surveyors as they establish new procedures and mechanisms for the delivery of programmes of works which address current and future requirements.  The post holder will be responsible for the delivery of a comprehensive planned and reactive building maintenance service to the University, supporting the Head of Maintenance and Facilities through the provision of high-level technical skills and will assist in bringing forward new working practices and procedures to develop new departmental operations which drive an improvement in quality.

The ideal candidate will have extensive experience in managing planned and reactive maintenance, undertaking and use of condition surveys, asset registers and life cycle cost plans. They will have strong commercial experience in managing contracts up to £500K and managing a team of specialist surveyors.  The role requires excellent client and stakeholder management skills, together with wide estates experience and strong technical knowledge.
