Sandberg is recruiting for a vacancy in our Building Inspection and Investigation department, one of our most versatile and wide-ranging departments.
Based in Clapham, the BIID team undertakes a broad range of work from routine concrete and structural investigations, cladding facade inspections to load testing and many other projects. Our projects vary from small, single day inspections to involved investigations lasting several months. As a result, this role provides excellent opportunities for developing a wide range of skills and experience.
This is an ideal role for someone looking to build on existing construction knowledge and to develop their knowledge and experience. The core aspects of the work will be:
- On-site building inspection
- On-site testing
- Façade inspection surveys
- Technical reporting of site findings
- Taking of samples (such as cores) for lab testing
This is a full-time permanent position based at our laboratories in Clapham, London but with a significant proportion of the site-based work around London and beyond. Though this will normally be a Monday to Friday role, there will be occasional work at nights and weekends at overtime rates.
This successful candidate will be developed and trained in the testing and inspection that we undertake, but some initial grounding in construction is important.
- Relevant experience in inspection/construction
- Hands-on approach
- Computer literate (Word, Excel)
- Driving license valid for UK
- Good standard of English for written and verbal communication
- CSCS card
- HNC/HND or better in a related discipline
With over 160 years under our belts, Sandberg is considered one of the leading providers of engineering consultancy, testing and inspection services in the UK. We’ve been involved in projects as interesting and diverse as the Forth bridge, Thames Barrier, Channel Tunnel, Canary Wharf, British Museum, Canterbury Cathedral, Dubai metro and the Smithsonian Museum.
Sandberg is proud to have a community feel and employ staff from a variety of different backgrounds. We are committed to continuing to develop a diverse and inclusive workplace. We welcome and will consider all applications that meet the above requirements.
