Working for a hugely successful and ever-growing construction consultancy in Exeter, you will be carrying out the role of Technical Advisor / Clerk of Works. It would be beneficial if you had a technical background in housing and residential development and a good understanding of building regulations and NHBC standards. The company are keen for all senior members of the team to take on some mentoring of the junior surveyors to support their development – so this would be expected in the role.

In your capacity as Technical Advisor, you will be, assisting on checking technical drawings, carrying out progress and quality inspections on-site, reviewing health and safety arrangements on-site, being involved in pre-handover inspections, supporting on the handover process, and leading on defect inspections. In addition to this, your role will expand to take on the duties of the Clerk of Works to include regular site progress inspections and ensuring full compliance with the site inspectors handbook.

The ideal person would be a self-motivated, hard-working and organised technical professional, being able to work well with the inhouse team and the clients and agents involved in all projects. The key to the success of the role is being able to communicate effectively across all involved in the project from pretender through to completion.
