Commercial building surveyor job opportunity

Join our growing team of commercial building professionals, supporting clients with commercial surveying projects in Birmingham and the West Midlands.

Job opportunity: Senior or Associate Commercial Building Surveyor

Birmingham & West Midlands


We would like to hear from talented commercial building surveyors at Senior or Associate level based in Birmingham or the surrounding area. You will be joining our trusted, independent building consultancy providing a variety of commercial surveying services to a range of property investors, occupiers and developers across a range of commercial sectors.

The Role

We are looking for someone based in the West Midlands region to join our nationwide team of chartered commercial surveyors. The work is incredibly varied, and, depending on the candidate’s skill set, would include condition surveys, dilapidations, schedules of condition, pre-acquisition surveys, PPM surveys and contract admin.

Our professionals are all home- rather than office-based, and the survey areas are based on each surveyor’s home location.

We have a fantastic multi-disciplined team of building surveyors and structural engineers spread across the country. The successful applicant will benefit from the diverse range of expertise within the team, working closely with colleagues to deliver high-quality survey services. We tailor each position to the candidate and their strengths and preferences – the role could include mentoring, growing a team or developing new specialties, if that is of interest.

Allcott Commercial is an independent company, which gives us the freedom to design a package to meet your needs. Ensuring everyone has an excellent work–life balance is critical to our way of working; whether you want flexible working, the chance to try something different or even the opportunity to become a partner in the company, for the right person, we can make it work.

You will have experience of:

  • a broad range of commercial work

  • preparing and presenting technically robust reports
  • providing clear, concise, justified conclusions
  • working independently and within a team structure
