We have an exciting opportunity for a Building Surveyor to join the Premium Services team, within Building Consents. 


Reporting to the Team Leader Specialist Reclads, you will provide technical advice and contribute to the re-clad process for all consents, applying key principles and deliverables for the Building Control team and legislative requirements. 


You will be key in determining when Consents have demonstrated compliance with the Building Code and approving the issue of the consent.

Understanding of the Local Government Act 2002, Building Act 2004 and/or the Resource Management Act 1991 would also be ideal. 

Familiarity with effective monitoring disciplines and a good understanding of local authority building processes will ensure you are providing valuable advice on complex technical and procedural requirements to customers, builders and developers. 

With a solid eye for detail, you are competent in the use of Microsoft office applications and can easily adapt to new systems. You will have worked within a busy professional environment and have the ability to build strong working relationships. 


A current New Zealand driver’s license is also required for the role.
