Job Description

Bracknell Forest, a prosperous neighbourhood in the heart of Berkshire but only a short distance from London, provides a variety of fascinating challenges and opportunities for building control specialists, including a mix of residential and commercial industrial complexes.

We are searching for an experienced team member who can work independently, manage their own caseload, and support their Principal Building Control Surveyor with more junior members of the team as needed.

We’re searching for someone to join us and keep the momentum continuing as the team transforms to meet the standards of the Building Safety Regulator.

Because we are Bracknell Forest.
