  • Site surveys of damaged buildings (Domestic, Commercial and Industrial). Recording all damage and defects
  • Compiling detailed schedule of works
  • Undertaking the role of Contract Administrator

  • Evidencing and recording in support of any variations or unforeseen works items
  • Dealing with planning applications and advising on property legislation and current building regulations
  • Valuing contractor’s work and variations on an interim basis and the issuing of the required Certification for Payments
  • Compilation of Final Accounts – balancing all project costs

You’ll be ambitious and driven with a strong interest in construction, highly professional in character and demeanor, with good communication skills.

Both roles will require you to be an experienced user of Microsoft Excel & Word / Office 365 and capable of working from a laptop/tablet/phone when out and about.

The roles are based from our head office in Weston super Mare, so please only apply if you are within a reasonable commute.
