Working For Us

In order to achieve our big ambitions, we recognise that it is up to us to create a working environment where our team can thrive. We are a new partnership embracing innovation in a big way. We’re not your average public sector building control service, we are looking to play a big role in shaping the face of the areas that we work in.

Join us and you’ll be brought into a forward-thinking organisation that has your career and professional development amongst its top priorities. We support all of our staff to work towards their necessary qualifications, ensuring that they are fully equipped for the job at hand.

We are lucky to operate in an area that has the means and ambition to embrace considerable and innovative development. This means that there will always be interesting and challenging projects to sink your teeth into.

We firmly believe that to provide the level of work that we expect, our people need to have the right tools at their disposal. We want to do everything we can to empower you to achieve. This includes enabling remote working, providing a supportive and creative working environment in our offices and making continuous training and development opportunities readily available.

Whilst we have a clear idea of where we want the future to take us, we also want you to help drive and direct us. As soon as you join us, you will have a voice and say that will help shape the future of our service. We want people who have their own ideas and can contribute to shaping the way that we work.

If you’re looking for somewhere you can work in a way that will allow you to be hands on, to innovate and have an influence on your organisation’s future, then get in touch with us. Your career will be in safe hands.

Our offer to you

Build your future - and the future of our service

The most important qualities that you can bring to our service are drive, commitment and ambition. We’re looking for people with a burning desire to be part of something truly special.

We take a huge amount of pride in the working environment and culture that we’re cultivating. It is therefore essential that anyone joining us can contribute positively to that. We need team players, people able to collaborate and work with a smile and a sense of humour. Your attitude and approach to work is more important to us than your experience so whatever your skill level is please still get in touch.

Training is central to our culture and you can be rest assured that we will work with you to develop your skills and expertise. As recognition for our commitment to the continued training and development of our staff, we have been recognised by the CABE under their Training Affiliate Scheme. We have a clear progression path in place and we want you to grow and progress with us. Nothing would make us happier than seeing someone join us as a trainee and progress through our ranks to become a Team Manager.

We are well on the way to building something truly special. We’re looking for more dynamic individuals to join us for the next stage of this exciting journey.
