The purpose of Building Control is to help champion public health, safety, sustainability and accessibility in the built environment through administration of legislation, particularly the Building Regulations.

The Council is seeking an enthusiastic and self-motivated individual to work within the Building Control team to help deliver its service to customers that include architects, builders, developers and the public.

If required relevant training and support will be provided. A full clean driving licence and use of a car daily is essential.

The successful applicant will be involved in analysing architectural designs to ensure compliance with Building Regulations, carrying out site inspections to check building works and providing customers with appropriate advice.

The service has a reputation for delivering a high-quality customer focused service and maintains a very large market share of building control work. You will need to demonstrate excellent communication and customer service skills.

We also offer a range of staff benefits, including a generous annual leave entitlement, an excellent pension scheme and flexible working, in addition you will be able to enjoy your leisure time within one of the most beautiful parts of the country.

In addition to our attractive remuneration package, relocation support of up to £8,000 (which is not liable for tax or national insurance deductions) may also be available to you if you would be moving to the Isle of Wight to take up this role. Alternatively, if you decide to commute to the Isle of Wight daily, you may get your travel costs reimbursed.
