You will be working in a team of 12, where you will report into an Associate and have junior surveyors beneath you. At the moment there is a mix of WFH and working in the office which is currently led by the employee, the Partner managing the division has no desire to change that so this role would be ideal for someone looking for a better work - life balance.
