Property Services Team
Newton Abbot, Devon
Enhance our housing stock so we can improve our residents’ lives.
Teign Housing is a successful social landlord employing over 90 ambitious, committed people, responsible for managing more than 3,600 homes across South Devon. In this pivotal position, you will ensure the effective repair, maintenance and improvement of our housing stock – going the extra mile every day to improve the quality of our tenants’ lives.
About the Asset Management Surveyor role
Primarily delivering a professional surveying role to our responsive repairs service, you will proactively assess our property portfolio and occasionally assist with condition, dilapidation and land surveys. You will prepare work specifications and schedules, complete or commission design drawings and conduct indicative risk assessments, whilst drafting contract documents, advising on acquisitions and right-to-buy, and identifying hazardous materials, so every day will be different.
Capable of scheduling and co-ordinating maintenance programmes, tracking spending against budget and creating detailed reports, you will join us with sound experience of inspection and surveying. Naturally, you should be qualified to at least HNC level in building studies or a similar discipline, and you will ideally hold membership of a professional institution such as RICS or CIOB. Familiarity with e-tendering, lifecycle costing, CAD software and partnering contracts would naturally be useful, as would knowledge of Leasehold Section 20 consultations.
More importantly, you will be adept at dealing with customers and contractors, familiar with just in time maintenance and capable of making clear and considered decisions – and you will be passionate about taking our housing stock to the next level.
In return, we offer an excellent benefits package with a contributory pension scheme, 25 days’ leave per year plus bank holidays, free parking and a modern working environment.
We will interview suitable candidates upon receipt of application and reserve the right to close the vacancy early. Please apply without delay to avoid disappointment.
