You will be working with and leading an experienced and committed team of building inspectors and a structural engineer, currently handling around 750 building regulation applications a year. You will be responsible for providing the lead on building control matters raised in the day to day running of the service.

Epsom & Ewell Borough Council is an equal opportunities employer.

Epsom and Ewell Borough lies on the ‘spring line’ of the North Downs where chalk meets London Clay. A truly beautiful part of Surrey with rolling countryside and an excellent quality of life. It has excellent transport communications into central London. Epsom, where the Council offices are located, is only 35 minutes from London (Waterloo).

The borough is home to the world famous Derby and a number of high quality educational institutes including the University of Creative Arts and North East Surrey College of Technology. Over half of the borough is open green space with over 18 parks including the historic Nonsuch Park and Epsom Downs.

This is an exciting opportunity to be part of a professional and committed team and we look forward to receiving your application
