Job Details

Do you thrive in a fast-paced work environment? Do you enjoy delivering a high-quality service and making a real difference for customers? If this sounds like you, then being a Property Surveyor here at Johnnie Johnson Housing could be your perfect role.

Our Property Surveyors are responsible for delivering a high quality, customer focused surveying/inspection service ensuring responsive repairs, void works, capital, and cyclical work programmes to our properties are completed to a high standard and within budget.

You’ll carry out responsive & void repairs inspections, stock condition and annual surveys associated with individual projects, cyclical projects and asbestos, along with undertaking post inspection of work and actively resolve queries from our residents, leaseholders, colleagues and external customers relating to the surveys and works undertaken.

You’ll also gather technical assistance and information in connection with disrepair claims and manage, from beginning to completion, complex refurbishment and decent homes programmes including initial consultations, monitoring on site, agreeing final accounts, and rectifying defects.

So now you’ve heard a bit about the role, let us tell you a bit about the team! It’s important to know who you might be working with, right?

Our Team

The team you’ll join is a really lovely close-knit team of seven. We’re led by the Head of Homes and Building Safety and as well as providing support to the organisation, we support each other too.

About You

We’re ideally looking for someone who holds a HND/HNC or equivalent in a relevant subject and who may have experience in a similar role, or a trades person with experience of working within this type of environment wanting to take the ‘Next Step’ up in their career progression.

Alternatively, if you are a recent graduate we’d also love to hear from you!

An understanding of social housing would be advantageous; however this is not essential as we’ll consider applications from people who would like to develop their skills and experience further with support from our team.

A great communicator who puts customers at the heart of everything you do, you’ll enjoy working at pace and with colleagues across the business, and have a passion for continuous improvement, developing yourself and others. Able to plan, lead and support projects, you’ll be adaptable and embrace change, enjoy making decisions and taking accountability.

A full UK driving licence is essential, as is access to a car for business use.

And the benefits of working for us?

We’ve adopted a completely agile way of working meaning you can work from home too, as long as our residents and customers are put first we’ll also give you a degree of flexibility using our ‘My Lifestyle’ guidelines, meaning you can attend the important things in life. So, whether you’ve got a gym class you’d love to attend, your child’s school play or maybe it’s just that you’ve got a new fridge being delivered, we will work with you to be flexible!

We also offer a fantastic holiday allowance of 33 days per annum (including statutory holidays) which rises to 38 days after 5 years’ service (pro-rata for fixed term contracts). We can offer you a 35-hour working week, an enhanced 5% employer contribution pension scheme and a recognition scheme with both financial and non-financial rewards such as gift vouchers, early finishes or even a later start! There’s loads more fantastic benefits too – you can find out more about these on our careers site!
