Formed in 2015 as a partnership between the building control services of Wokingham Borough Council and the Royal Borough of Windsor and Maidenhead, BCS (Building Control Solutions) expanded last year to West Berkshire.
And now the team is seeking new members of staff to help it build on its strong foundations and become increasingly innovative and competitive.
Unlike most local authority teams, building control (which inspects building work to ensure it is safe) provides services in competition with private sector companies. The merger of three local authorities' services has helped the competitiveness by increasing the range of specialist services offered and the ability to recruit and retain the right staff.
Further innovations will follow, with a new IT system being implemented to give customers greater online access to information they need and to provide a more flexible service. And, BCS is looking for new local recruits to help shape the service it offers. The team is interested in hearing from experienced surveyors as well as those keen to get into the industry and develop their skills.
Anybody interested can contact our Building Control Commercial and Operations Manager, Roger Paine, on (0118) 974 6239 or email: firstname.lastname@example.org to find out more.
