Senior Building Surveyor Advice

Q: What is it like working as a Senior Building Surveyor?

Senior Building Surveyor in Leeds:
"Becoming a chartered surveyor."
My advice would be to start your APC training as early as possible. Most employers should have a structured training agreement in place which means they are recognised as an employer that have the necessary processes and practices in place to support you through your training. Make the most of this from the earliest opportunity and put pressure on your employer to meet your training and development requirements. The sooner you become chartered, the better it looks on your CV. You have to be able to put the time and effort into the learning yourself though as it is by no means a simple process and not all candidates will be successful the first time around.

Senior Building Surveyor in Leeds:
"High pressure, client facing, demanding but satisfying."
Pros: Variety of roles from property surveys to contract administration and construction management. Mixture of office based and site based work.
Cons: Unpaid overtime sometimes required. Poor appraisal / salary review process.
