Redbridge is an ambitious, diverse and exciting east-London borough. What we do is driven by changing our relationship with local people to support our vision. As a result, we've developed innovative ways to build our communities and transform our Council. 

The London Borough of Redbridge is situated on the outer fringes of North-East London with an excellent transport network including rail and tube links into central London, while at the same time enjoying several square miles of Green Belt land.

The Building Control section is part of the Planning service and plays an important role in ensuring that the Council’s legal obligations are met regarding the Building Regulations and associated legislation.

This is an exciting opportunity to be part of a busy Building Control section with a well-established track record of good performance.

The Job Description and Person Specification sets out the relevant Building Safety Regulator classes of accreditation required for the various stages of the career grade post.

We are looking for enthusiastic and motivated individuals, who are committed to delivering quality customer-focused services to our clients.  If you have a sound building industry background with a degree in Building Surveying or equivalent, and would like to move to an interesting and challenging profession, where sustainability and climate change issues will increasingly feature, we would welcome hearing from you.

We currently have 3 posts to fill, one at Trainee level, one at Building Control Officer level and one at Senior Building Control Officer level. Appointments will be offered at the grade commensurate with skills and experience. Please clearly state on your application which role/level you are interested in.


You will be responsible for an area of the borough and your duties will involve examination of plans and site inspections for compliance with Building Regulations, dealing with unauthorised works / dangerous structures / demolitions, providing advice to clients, involvement with sustainability and climate change issues. 

Essential qualifications/skills
Good IT and communication skills, as well as the ability to work as part of a team or on your own initiative and meet deadlines, will be important. You would be expected to hold membership of an appropriate professional body (i.e. Royal Institute of Chartered Surveyors or Association of Building Engineers).
