This is not your standard M&E Surveyor role, but this isn’t also your standard property team either.

Yes, you will be looking at M&E plant and equipment.

Yes, you will be producing reports and making recommendations.

No, you won’t be looking at schools, hospitals or prisons between now and forever more while having no chance to consider more than the M&E.

The difference is that you will be looking at properties which are for sale and taking a commercial view of not just the services, but associated lease agreements.

The company is a property consultancy that works across a range of sectors and you will be in their investment team.

You could well be based in commuting distance of London, Leeds or Manchester, or similarly, you could be elsewhere. The majority of the time you will be able to go straight to site and so, a regular commute is very much a thing of the past.

The chances are you will have worked within contracting, consultancy or FM previously, but it is crucial that you have a strong building services engineering and good practical knowledge of non-residential electrical, mechanical and PH installations coupled with knowledge of relevant regs and standards.

This post will see you assessing M&E Services to gain an understanding of their design, provide insight as to their condition, performance capabilities and operational risk of the installations.

Through completing non-intrusive inspections, reviewing previous maintenance works, certificates etc and checking for defects and outstanding repairs.

You will also need a crystal ball to assess future lifecycle replacement requirements, consider technical obsolescence and look at other aspects that will affect the client’s investment.

It’s a fascinating role that will see you going beyond your regular M&E Survey post and using a different skill set. You don’t need to worry if you don’t have knowledge about leases etc. at present, they will teach you that. The key thing is that you have an interest in that kind of work and moving your skills to the next level.

You will mainly be working on properties that you reach, survey and get home from in a day, but there are times where the properties are either larger or further away. Typically you may well be away for a couple of nights a month, but you won’t be working from one end of the country on a week in, week out basis.

So, what do you need?

Well, having worked as a M&E Surveyor previously will give you a head start, particularly in an acquisition or consultancy focused role.

You will need to have a strong knowledge of M&E services and be able to identify how an install was designed to work as well as any barriers to it fulfilling that ethos and ways to overcome them.

As you would expect, you will also need to be able to drive, be happy to travel as part of the role and be comfortable with having a few nights away a month.

As for rewards, they are plentiful with 25 days holiday, an excellent pension scheme, bonus and while there isn’t a car allowance, they encourage you to take the train and to use a hire car if you don’t want to claim mileage for using your own.
