The University of Leicester is seeking to make the appointment of a Building Surveyor to play a key role in the delivery of the University’s capital investment programme.

At the heart of the UK, Leicester is a leading university committed to international excellence, world-changing research and high quality, inspirational teaching. Celebrating diversity among our staff and students; widening participation in higher education; engaging with local, national and international communities – all of these are part of what we do and who we are.

Our very compact campus contains a wide range of twentieth century architecture, though the oldest building dates from 1837. The main campus is a mile south of the city centre, adjacent to Victoria Park and Wyggeston and Queen Elizabeth I College. The University has in excess of 20,000 students and The Association of Graduate Recruiters have recognised the University of Leicester as the institution in the UK with the best initiative to prepare students for the world of work.

The University has embarked upon a challenging and very exciting Campus Masterplan aligned to delivering the Physical Environment Strategy over the next 5-10 years. The first phase amounting to an initial £65m investment and the second phase and major part of the Capital Programme will then follow from 2020 with a total investment of circa £500m.

With responsibility for leading a range of complex refurbishment projects typically up to £1m in value, the Building Surveyor will act in the capacity of Designer, Lead Consultant and Project Manager for minor works and capital schemes, leading and motivating combined teams of internal staff and external consultants to provide completed schemes to the required brief, programme and budgetary constraints agreed.

Successful candidates will have gained demonstrable experience of managing complex refurbishment and strategic maintenance schemes in the £50k to £1m value range. You will have strong technical and commercial skills, with experience of contract administration and design.

It is essential that candidates have excellent interpersonal and communication skills together with the adaptability to manage a number of projects simultaneously. It is anticipated that candidates will possess a relevant professional qualification in an area such as building surveying, construction or project management.

The University of Leicester offers a competitive salary and pension scheme, generous leave entitlement and a commitment to your continuing professional development.
