Assistant Building Standards Surveyor
Waverley Court

Salary: £28,854 - £34,057
Hours: 36 per week

We are looking for career motivated individuals with transferable skills to fill the role of Assistant Building Standards Surveyor and help us continue to drive forward our programme to reshape our services.

Edinburgh is a dynamic and growing city and we process around 5000 building warrant applications a year. We aim to provide a seamless development consent process with close collaboration between professionals in different service areas.

You would be responsible for processing building warrants supporting Building Standards Surveyors and Senior Building Standards Surveyors in their activities. With this comes a range of the most interesting Building Standards surveying work in Scotland.

You would be expected to deliver improvement projects for the service which help keep us at high levels of performance and customer satisfaction.

You would be working in a hybrid way at this time and those who are able to work from home will be permitted to do so, as and when necessary. We are working with colleagues to improve facilities in Waverley Court with a view of improving the hybrid model. Our modern open-plan offices are in Edinburgh City Centre, 5 minutes’ walk from Waverley Station.

The Council provides a wide and far reaching variety of services making us unique as an employer, and our varied rewards cater to the needs and wants of our employees. At our core are our behaviours that all Council employees are expected to demonstrate in the workplace:

  • Respect
  • Integrity
  • Flexibility

If you are interested, you should bring a strong sense of customer service, excellent communication skills, an understanding of quality assurance and an appetite for project delivery and continuous improvement.

If successful, two references will be required.

We're committed to creating a workplace culture where all our people feel valued, included and able to be their best at work, and we recognise the benefits that a diverse workforce with different values, beliefs, experience, and backgrounds brings to us as an organisation.

Our salary range typically reflects the initial starting salary and annually increases until it reaches the top of the range.
