Join this exciting and dynamic Building Consultancy in Central Manchester as a Chartered Building Surveyor and experience a broad range of work in the Commercial and Residential sectors whilst enjoying an inclusive, fun working environment.

Our client is a National Building Consultancy that delivers first class technical expertise covering the ‘whole property life cycle’. Their Director-led service combines commercial acumen with a pro-active approach to service delivery.

On top of their technical offering they have a refreshing outlook and a true focus on their staff. From the way they structure their workload to their numerous social events, they are building an equal opportunities consultancy that people enjoy working within.

With offices in Manchester (currently 9) and Central London (currently 30) they are predominantly made up of Building Surveyors but are also actively growing their Commercial Management and Project Management teams.

They are keen to offer a broad range of work in their core sectors, Commercial (80%) and High-end Residential (20%) sectors, from Pre-acquisition Surveys and Technical Due Diligence through to Contract Administration and Project Management. They like all team members to have the opportunity for involvement at all stages of a project and everyone has the opportunity for client Liaison.

They have an inclusive working environment with everyone from Shareholder Directors down to grads working on the main floor. Directors are genuinely approachable and are there for assistance or advice at any time, although they trust their staff to get on and are happy to give responsibility without micro-management.

Due to continued growth they are now recruiting for Chartered Building Surveyors for their Central Manchester Office.
