Salary: Competitive

Location: Kettering

Berrys is a leading firm of chartered surveyors, chartered town planners and property and business consultants. It has five offices in the UK and a strong reputation both locally and regionally of providing high quality professional advice. Berrys merged with BNE several years ago, a well-respected General Practice consultancy with particular expertise in commercial development, building surveying and valuations and since then, Building Consultancy has been the fastest growing department within the business.

Responsibilities / Duties:

An opportunity has arisen for a Building Surveyor to join Berrys’ busy and expanding Building Consultancy team. This individual would be based in the Kettering office, and be responsible to the Head of Building Surveying, also based in our Kettering office.

The role is primarily focused on commercial property building surveying, but an understanding of residential surveys is desirable.

• Schedules of condition
• Preparation and negotiation of schedule of dilapidations
