If you are an engaged and energetic building surveyor who wants to make great money working at an amazing company then keep reading…….

We are working with a client who are a niche building consultancy with an entrepreneurial streak, set up to offer high quality building advice to local property investors and tenants.

They are looking for someone who wants to be, and feel, integral to the success of their business and their clients’ businesses.

Don’t be put off by their size – they use a higher base salary in relation to billing targets so you can still earn well there! They are a close, loyal and hardworking team and this is reflected in their reward and recognition approach.

Do you prefer to be your own boss?

No problem - You will be in charge of building your own career, influencing the types of instructions accepted and working in a way that suits you. More importantly, you will be supported to develop your skillsets in whatever direction you choose.

They are particularly interested in candidates who are curious and able to see instructions in a wider commercial context. They love people that are ‘self-starters’ and who want to make clients’ lives as easy as possible. So good stakeholder management skills are a must as well as the ability to interpret client briefs effectively.

If you are adaptable, take pride in your work and have a collaborative mind set, we would love to hear from you.

The role

They have recently grown their residential surveys service line and are looking for a full time building surveyor to join their friendly and sociable team, providing Homebuyer Reports and Building Surveys.

Your role will entail inspecting and reporting upon a range of properties from one-bedroom flats to large country houses worth well in excess of £1m. The majority of properties will be based around South Hampshire, though there will be opportunities to travel further afield.

There will also be opportunities to work on commercial instructions and to gain experience in dealing with Party Wall matters, dilapidations, and contract administration, amongst other service lines.

Their office is located in Southampton, though work (when not inspecting properties) can be split between their office and home, to suit the applicant.

Role responsibilities:

You will be preparing Homebuyer Reports and Building Surveys for private clients looking to purchase their next home or investment, providing a reliable, consistent and quality service.

You will be building relationships with solicitors, mortgage advisers and estate agents, and building your own personal contact base in the local area.

You will produce detailed reports that reflect our client’s commitment to their clients -to be client focused and providing them with the best possible service and advice.

You will be supporting the Director on commercial surveying instructions, dependent on workload and desire to diversify your skill set.

Benefits on offer:

Flexible working with the option to work from their Southampton office or home.

Competitive salary with clear, reasonable targets and defined bonus structure.

Generous annual leave entitlement.

Friendly and entrepreneurial working environment.

The successful candidate will be provided with a mobile phone, iPad and laptop to ensure they have the best technology to help them carry out their role.

Training and support will be provided to suit the needs of the applicant.


Due to RICS Regulations, the candidate will, at a minimum, be an AssocRICS qualified surveyor, although we would also love to hear from MRICS or FRICS qualified surveyors.

Attention to detail is a must, identifying issues and defects, as well as providing well considered and appropriate advice on remedial work.

Excellent people skills.

Hardworking and driven with a positive work ethic.

Ability to independently manage and organise your own workload.

Hold a full UK driving licence with access to personal transport.
