Job Description


Milton Keynes is a rapidly expanding, vibrant and dynamic place to live, work and play. How better to contribute to that continued success than through a unique and rewarding career with Milton Keynes Council. So if you’re looking for an excellent benefits package and the chance to make a difference, make a move to Milton Keynes Council.

Due to recent retirements we are recruiting to our Building Control team at all levels. We have vacancies at Assistant Surveyor, Surveyor, Senior Surveyor and Principal levels. With salaries ranging from £29,055-£48,331, if you are a Building Control Professional we want to hear from you.


As a new and rapidly developing town the work in Milton Keynes is wide and varied, including villages mentioned in the Doomsday book, through to some of the country’s most modern and innovative developments. Work is across all types from domestic extensions and new housing through to commercial and large public buildings such as the recently listed shopping centre, the MK Dons football stadium and cinemas bars and restaurants.


The roles will include plan checking, site inspections and investigations of unauthorised works and dangerous structures, and the more senior roles will include some mentoring and supervisory duties.


All posts require experience in the construction industry, and an understanding of the Building Act, the Building Regulations, and the Building Control function, with the more senior roles requiring a more in-depth knowledge and experience. Knowledge and experience gained outside of Building Control will be considered when assessing applicants for all roles.
