Ideally, the candidate will hold City in Guilds 2391 Inspection and testing although this can be sought through continuous professional development.

    The electrical team consists of a Head of Operations, Regional Managers, Team Leaders and a vast number of Electrical Test and Inspection Engineers.

Our clients come from far and wide including small commercial properties to well know international brand names.

  • Engineer Surveyors

    Engineering Surveyors are home-based, but each day they will visit clients within their local geographical area to carry out examinations of the equipment on site. Every site visit and client brings new experiences as we empower our surveyors to manage their client commitment and be forward-facing ambassadors for our business.

    Each smaller Surveyor team (up to 10) is managed by Team Leaders, each dedicated to managing and supporting their teams, whilst also undertaking their own client-facing examinations.

    Our larger teams (up to 20 surveyors) are managed by Team Managers who are responsible for surveyor development, client engagement and business improvements. Our teams are split up into geographical regions with each region headed by a Mechanical Regional Manager with a structure of between 75 – 85 personnel.

    The versatility of managing your appointments and agenda gives the Bureau Veritas surveyor an excellent work-life balance. Long & short days balanced throughout the week provides the surveyor with the flexibility to manage his performance and personal life to the benefit of the clients, the business and their family.
