Our Manchester and northern offering opened at the beginning of 2021 and it has grown substantially in headcount and income since then with an office in Newcastle since 2022.

The role

As we continue to grow, and specifically so in Manchester and Newcastle, we are looking for an ambitious Associate/Partner level building surveyor to join our growing Newcastle team and develop a Project and Building Consultancy offering in the Newcastle office, serving Northumbria, Yorkshire and Cumbria.

The role will be based in Newcastle but can accommodate a Leeds based surveyor with strong connections to the Newcastle market, who is prepared to spend a few days a week in the Newcastle office.

There will be a strong emphasis on core traditional building surveying duties across multiple sectors, including a full range of professional work on a variety of client accounts across both commercial and residential property. We are seeking someone who is adept at working across a number of small and large projects at any one time.

The role provides a real opportunity for an ambitious surveyor to ‘make their mark’ and shape the future of the team at an early stage, with unrestricted opportunity for the right team member.
