Newcastle Office: Graduate Building Surveyor

A graduate building surveyor is required to join a team administering a building maintenance contract. The building maintenance requests range from fixing roof tiles, leaking taps through to resurfacing access roads and refurbishing small buildings. The projects are both planned and reactive maintenance and are valued from £80 through to £150,000.

The successful candidate will be organising all maintenance requests through a comprehensive bespoke database which will contain all workflow procedures and assists in managing the day to day workload.

After receiving the building maintenance requests, the task is to then collate all relevant health and safety information, write a short technical specification of the works so the appropriate building contractor can be instructed.

The successful candidate will be from a surveying/construction related background and will be familiar with the building maintenance sector.  It is an ideal position for a graduate building surveyor seeking their first employment opportunity and candidates will be joining a practice with a strong track-record of seeing graduates through their APC to achieve Chartered Status.
