Industrial Dwellings Society looking for Property Surveyor

Salary:  £36K & attractive benefits (potentially more for an exceptional candidate)

Location: London

Closing date: Wednesday 24th March 2021 (9am)

Recruiter: Campbell Tickell

The Industrial Dwellings Society (IDS) was one of the very first Housing Associations established in 1885 by a group of philanthropists whose ambition was to tackle extreme housing conditions in London’s East End. Now with 1400 homes mainly across London, IDS has stuck faithfully to this mission but moved with the times, housing London’s diverse communities within the framework of its Jewish heritage. Still ambitious, IDS sets its goal to be ‘best in class’ and have exciting plans to develop 500 new homes over the next few years.

Following a review of its property services operations IDS identified the Property Surveyor role as being pivotal to developing its repairs service - which is a key determinant of great resident satisfaction and will be responsible for looking after some amazing heritage properties as well as new homes coming on stream.

The postholder will be responsible for carrying out property inspections across IDS's stock and support the day-to-day repairs and re-letting properties. You will ensure health and safety standards are consistently maintained, tenants are satisfied with the service they receive and that complaints are dealt with courteously and effectively. Working closely with contractors, you will be at the front line of delivering quality assurance and cost control.  Above all, you will have an inbuilt drive for continuous service improvement.
