We are working with a well established public sector and facilities consultancy to recruit a Building Surveyor and Estates Compliance Manager to help deliver the increasing demand for compliance and asset management audits across public sector commissions. The role will be flexible for location but ideally the successful candidate will be Midlands based

The post holder will be responsible for assessing estates statutory compliance, reviewing Planned Preventative Maintenance (PPM) programmes, and implementation and lifecycle delivery against contractual obligations. Evaluating performance quality, value for money, and providing a technical review of projects.

The successful candidate will also be charged with working alongside performance management, operational and project delivery functions to implement monthly reporting, variations and energy deliverables associated with our commissions.

As many of the commissions are on PFI projects, a background and understanding of the nuances around this form of contract would be advantageous, as would a working knowledge of project management. The client base is predominantly in the Education and Healthcare sector so experience in these areas would also be useful.

Responsibilities and Duties:

PFI Contract Commissions

The Building Surveyor & Compliance Manager will provide compliance and technical support on behalf of our clients, by interrogating operational and or contractual requirements against the physical presentation of the estate. This will also involve regular attendance at meetings across multiple sites to support the delivery of our PFI based commissions.

Non PFI and Statutory Compliance Commissions

The role will include building element and condition compliance assessments of client's estate; and supporting clients in setting up and implementing compliance strategies that allow organisations to meet their estates-based obligations. Create models that ensure value for money solutions for clients and, where appropriate, engage in face-to-face negotiations and challenge sessions with external contractors and other key stakeholders providing services to our clients.

Fire Compliance Division

Our Fire Compliance Division works across both our PFI and non PFI workflows and across projects within public & private sector settings. Our work includes compartmentation surveys; fire door inspections; Fire Risk Assessments; and assessment of all fire safety systems (including fire & smoke damper inspections, fire alarm inspections, emergency lighting checks, and sprinklers). The post holder will play an active part in the workload of this division working with M&E engineers and fire door specialists, who are members of the team, in order to provide a wholistic service to our customer base.

General disposition

The role also requires the holder to be able to articulate complex estate issues to non-technical clients. The post holder should have a collaborative approach and, through positive customer relationships, drive positive outcomes to be achieved on their projects. As part of a small team with regular interaction at Director level, the Building Surveyor & Compliance Manager should be able to establish effective interfaces with all levels of internal and external resources.

The Building Surveyor & Compliance Manager will report to the Strategic and Managing Directors, whilst supporting the commercial and business development functions. When not working in client's offices the role will be largely home based with periodic meetings in our West Yorkshire office and therefore the ability to self-motivate and work in an independent manner is essential.
