Helping us to deliver new properties to become market leading. That’s when it hits home.

It’s an exciting time to join us as we build more homes, independence and aspirations. Our commitment to deliver on our customer promise, build the right homes in the right places and be market leaders in our New Models of Care services are in the hands of our brilliant people.  

As our Building Surveyor (known internally by us as Development Project Surveyor), you’ll provide a specialist in-house technical service for our property purchase, refurbishment and small new build schemes. We provide accommodation to people who have complex needs and require additional support, ranging from conversion and refurbishment of existing properties through to purchasing from the market. We are also delivering specially commissioned homes from leading modular suppliers.

We’re looking for two new team members to join us and project manage the technical aspects of our residential buildings from end to end, driving the delivery of our schemes on site, making sure they are high quality that meet the needs of our customers.

About our team
You’ll be working alongside our small specialist property and development team. John, Victoria, Emma and Helen all have a project and building surveying background and work closely to deliver our programme and ensure a high-quality product. We work on a national basis and provide life-changing accommodation to people who really need it – how amazing is that!

This is a brilliant opportunity to manage multiple schemes, quickly and be able to demonstrate your ability to solve problems. You’ll also work with other colleagues from the Development team, and our wider Finance, Maintenance and New Models of Care teams. To us were not just a team we’re a ‘work family’.

Working hours and where you’ll work
It’s the team’s unwritten rule that you attend the important appointments in life, be it your child’s school play, your partner’s graduation, or to get your new fridge delivered. You can elect to fit these around your working day or use your flexi to take the time off. Our focus is on getting the job done, not your working hours!

The role will require travelling to sites that might be quite spread out across England, but your diary will be yours to control and we’ll work with you to make sure everything gets done on time. You’ll spend some time on the road as you visit sites, working from our regional offices or from home the rest of the time.

You’ll be able to download our Development Project Surveyor Job Description.  We’ve also got these brilliant videos that show you what it’s like to work here, and we’ll know you want to find out more about our award winning benefits and rewards package.

A bit about you
You’ll have a degree or other relevant qualification and experience in Building Surveying or Construction. It would be brilliant if you were also a member of RICS or CIOB. You’ll have a genuine interest in surveying and construction, and particularly project delivery, with experience of contract administration, clerk of work duties, running schemes on site and delivering high quality products. You’ll be confident working to specifications, contracts and data, and keeping the project team up to speed.

It’s important to us that you have worked in a Building Surveying or Construction environment before. Don’t worry, we won’t drop you in the deep end, we’ll help to you understand how things work at Home Group!

Here at Home Group we have invested heavily in our future and use current and up to date equipment and have a digital first agenda. You’ll be issued with the latest kit, which could include a Surface Pro and mobile. So, it's important to us that you are technologically savvy (or at the very least not a technophobe!)

As this role involved visiting various sites, you need to be able to drive, as well as having access to a car insured for business purposes. Don’t worry, we’ll pay you expenses to cover this use!

To apply
Don’t delay applying for this brilliant job, as we may close it early if we get lots of applications! Just upload your CV and if you have one, your covering letter.  If you need them, we’ve also got some great templates to help you.

We are looking to hold interviews the week beginning 23^rd August 2021. If you cannot make this date, please let us know within your application.

During Covid
We’re continuing to deliver services for our customers during the COVID-19 pandemic, and our brilliant colleagues are at the very heart of making that happen. We’re doing things a little differently at the moment, so to keep everyone safe, we’ll engage with you digitally where possible. Check out our awesome video to find out more on how our colleagues have felt supported here during the outbreak.
