Right now, we are investing heavily in our organisation, and our people. Our Administration Centre has relocated to a brand-new state of the art facility designed to inspire innovation, creativity and collaboration.

The role & you

We are offering a terrific opportunity for you to join a team of industry change makers and leaders as a Graduate or a qualified Building Surveyor.

Best in Business is a reality here.  We’ve pro-actively designed a service tailored to meet our Customer needs while supporting each other to enjoy high level job satisfaction and a real sense of contribution.   Our approach is innovative, collaborative and forward thinking.

We are looking for a self motivated person who enjoys working collaboratively to achieve and deliver exceptional results.  You’ll be an excellent communicator who can provide professional advice to management and customers, because they trust and respect you.   If you’re a Graduate, we will teach you all you need to know to become the best in your field.  

In this role, there’ll be lots of variety - you’ll assess and monitor a wide range of applications, undertake critical stage building inspections, assess small scale development applications and most importantly, you’ll build a reputation for your collaborative, community focussed approach in the marketplace.

If you’d appreciate joining a team that values your professionalism, commitment and innovative style, we would like to talk to you.
