Job Description

Are you struggling to get over the line with your APC training? Are you working for a large corporate and looking for something a bit different? Do you want to work in the city centre?

An exciting opportunity has arisen to join a well-established consultancy with a national presence, based in Bristol.

This company, established over 50 years ago, employs 50 staff across three regions. They have an existing office in Bristol and have recently relocated to larger premises in the city centre to support their growth and presence in the South West.

Key points include:

  • Ideal for candidates seeking a broad range of experience or critical analysis projects to help pass their APC interview. The practice is highly focused on quality delivery, emphasising training and achieving chartered status. Two team members have passed their APC interviews in the past 12 months (both on their first attempt).
  • You will work directly with the National Head of Building Surveying, who is also based in Bristol, and be part of a national department of seven.
  • The role involves a mix of professional and project work for regional and national clients, primarily along the M4 corridor and in South Wales.
  • The company has a flat management structure, providing access to the business owners.
  • There is significant company investment in building surveying services with further expansion plans.
  • The company has excellent employee retention, with many staff members having worked for the business for over 10 years.

The hiring manager is seeking an individual with a minimum of 12 months post-degree experience who is either working towards final assessment with the RICS or has recently achieved chartered status.

Employee benefits include:

  • Pension 5% employer contribution
  • 25 days holiday (plus an additional 3 days at Christmas)
  • Healthcare (after successful completion of probation period)
  • Life insurance
  • Local car parking permit
  • Flexible working and remote work options
  • Provision of a car allowance will be considered

The package will be immediately reviewed upon achieving chartered status, likely resulting in a basic salary of £40,000 to £45,000 plus car allowance.
