Job Description

Place – Sustainable Development

Building Standards Senior Building Standards Surveyor
Waverley Court

Salary: £37,589 - £44,934
Hours: 36 per week

We are looking for an experienced and motivated individual to fill the role of Senior Building Standards Surveyor and help us drive forward our programme to radically reshape our services.

Edinburgh is a dynamic and growing city and we process around 5000 building warrants 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 complex building warrants and for supporting team managers in their activities as well as developing Surveyors, Assistant Surveyors and Graduate Apprentice Surveyors. 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 take us to high levels of performance and customer satisfaction.

You would be based from home in line with the Scottish Government’s current guidelines for those who are able to work from home. We are continuing to monitor these guidelines with a view of a future phased return to our office or a possible move to a hybrid model, which would see a return to our modern open-plan offices 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 values which describe the behaviours that all Council employees are expected to demonstrate in the workplace:

  • honest and transparent
  • forward thinking
  • work together
  • put customers first

If you are interested in making a difference, you should bring a strong sense of customer service, excellent communication and leadership skills, a clear 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.  For roles in grade 5 or above, annual increments in our contribution zones are dependent on achieving agreed performance goals.
