Building Surveyors are involved in every stage of the construction process, from undertaking initial surveys and inspections of existing buildings, developing and designing solutions to improve buildings or rectify building defects, through to preparing and managing construction contracts on site.

The Level 6 Chartered Surveyor Degree Apprenticeship (Building Surveyor pathway) will result in successful apprentices obtaining an RICS accredited degree. In addition, successful apprentices will undertake the RICS Assessment of Professional Competence (APC), which leads to chartered surveyor status. Our Building Surveying apprentices undertake a part-time degree over the course of 5 years. The training will be delivered by blended learning, including formal lectures, online learning and workshops at the University of Portsmouth. You will be supported with your studies by a personal tutor at university. As an Apprentice Building Surveyor you will be supporting our Building Surveyors in undertaking surveys and managing projects in order to maintain our varied portfolio of over 18,000 assets.

Responsibilities with management support as appropriate include:

  • Undertaking building surveys and inspections
  • Carry out feasibility reports, dilapidation surveys and prepare reports
  • Diagnose and issue repairs
  • Preparing drawings, specifications and pre contract information
  • Managing a range of projects and contracts on site
  • Preparing estimates, valuing work completed and agreeing final accounts

Typically, a surveying apprentice will work 5 days per week with 4 days in the workplace and 1 day at university. Start date to be mutually agreed.
