Exeter is a flourishing, dynamic and historically significant city set in the beautiful county of Devon. The city is home to a magnificent cathedral; the award winning Royal Albert Memorial Museum; and the high-performing University of Exeter. The city is large enough to host a thriving shopping, sporting and cultural scene while at the same time small enough to create a friendly, welcoming atmosphere with an excellent quality of life.

Exeter City Council lies at the heart of the city: we provide a range of key services for local citizens and promote the economic prosperity of the whole area.

Our Housing Service manages and maintains around 5,000 tenancies and almost 1,000 leasehold properties in Exeter. We provide a first-rate range of services to around one tenth of the population of the city.

The Asset Management Team repairs and improves our properties in line with our overall aims of being an efficient, high performing and socially progressive landlord.

Works Surveyors (operational car users allowance)

Carrying out surveys and property inspections, you will play a key role in delivering the Council’s asset management service to around 5,000 tenancies, communal and environmental areas.

You will instruct contractors and oversee their performance as well as ensuring all works are carried out to the highest standard in accordance with regulations, the terms and conditions of the relevant tenancy agreement, and the Council’s policies and procedures.

We are looking for enthusiastic, motivated, ‘can-do’, self-starters who are keen to help ensure our housing stock is fit for the 21st century and who wants to make a real difference to people’s lives.

NB One of these roles will require an asbestos qualification.

If you would like to have an informal chat to see if this is the right role for you, then please contact Lawrence Blake on 01392 265691.
