Working with the clients in our front-line housing teams, you'll work with our Project Managers and Building Surveyors to provide professional inspections advice. Your quality inspections and monitoring of our planned programmes will help us make sure we're getting works right first time.
You'll use your knowledge and experience to review technical and material specifications, inspect works on site to ensure they are consistent with contract requirements, attend site inspections at regular intervals, and inspect and report as to the suitability of works to be undertaken.

Snag the works and agree complete allowing handover stage to commence. Assist with ad-hoc duties where required.
The Ideal Candidate
We are looking for an established Clerk of Works with experience of working on planned maintenance projects including kitchen and bathrooms. Ideally you will hold an accreditation from the Institute of Clerk of Works or similar.
Expect to be challenged. You'll work in a changing environment, so we need a flexible thinker with the ability to solve the complex problems associated with a Quality Inspector role.

Strong people skills are essential. As well as working with colleagues in different departments and external third parties, you'll be interacting with residents as the face of NHG, when assessing issues and visiting their property.
A good knowledge of IT systems will be more important as we change and develop how we work in this digital age.
