Technical Moves | Intermediate Building Surveyor Hertfordshire

Intermediate Building Surveyor

A fantastic opportunity has arisen for a chartered building surveyor to join an established company of professional surveyors, covering the London and Hertfordshire area.

The Company

 This small practice is connected to a much larger property management company. Because of this, a large proportion of work if for large residential blocks and high end, private houses, as well as some commercial properties such as offices, and more recently, some schools and educational establishments.

Job Description

This role is for a Chartered Building Surveyor, preferably with professional and project experience, looking to progress their career. You will be working along two other experienced, chartered building surveyors and one graduate. There will also be an additional graduate surveyor appointed in the not too distant future.

  • Party Wall instructions for Building Owner, Adjoining Owner and Agreed Owner
