What we are looking for

We are looking for a Minor Works Surveyor to join our fantastic Independent Living Service team delivering Disabled Facility and Minor Adaptation Grants.  You will share our values, ( commitment, and motivation to make a difference for our customers in the districts.

About the role

You will be a specialist for both councils to undertake and deliver surveys, reports, studies, designs and contracts for the delivery of Disabled Facility and Minor Adaptation Grants. 

You will lead on projects including the specifying, tendering and managing of contracts or works. 

You will become the main point of contact for grant applicants and be able to provide high levels of support, advice and knowledge throughout the process and the completion of the grant.

About you

You will need to be able to prioritise work and demands placed upon you as you deliver a high-quality customer-focused service.

The role will require travel to customers’ homes and other sites on a regular basis, therefore a full driver's licence and use of own car is essential.

With picturesque market towns, 60 conservation areas and with two Areas of Outstanding Natural Beauty (AONB) within our districts, it is little wonder that we are consistently within the top 50 places to live in the UK.

The Benefits of working with us:

  • Great opportunities for learning and development.
  • Suffolk Coaching and Mentoring Partnership
  • Generous leave entitlement (equivalent to 25 days a year, increasing to 30 days after 5 years’ service, plus bank holidays).
