A Utility Surveyor determines the location and route of underground utilities, such as water, drainage, gas, electric and telecoms. This information is used by designers and architects, when considering the location of new infrastructure, for example, buildings, trainlines or roadways, and by construction companies to reduce the likelihood of striking underground cables or pipes when digging.  At 40Seven, we use a variety of methods and technology to carry out utility surveys.

Our aspiration is to be the UK’s number one surveying company. We have over 20 years’ experience working in the industry and having recently put plans into action to achieve our aim, we are currently experiencing unprecedented growth, particularly within the south of England. We have an excellent and comprehensive training programme for new surveyors which will see you becoming a fully trained and qualified surveyor within 12 months of starting your training programme with us. Our training programme is hands on, so from your first week, you will be out onsite with your mentor.

We are therefore looking for people who really want to learn this profession. Our successful candidates don’t need any particular work history or background; we are willing to train people who are looking for a career change or who are looking for their first job. However, the following personal attributes are essential:

  • A methodical, detailed oriented and thorough approach to work
  • A good understanding of maths (ideally above a C at GCSE level or equivalent) and experience of using mathematics in the workplace)
  • A natural desire to work outdoors, in any weather, in a variety of locations across the country
  • A full driving licence

Our successful candidate must be able to work away from home during the week and must be available to carry out night or evening shifts as and when required.

This role offers a huge amount of variety in working locations and type of work. The role is mostly site based but you will be expected to visit one of our offices in Sevenoaks, Kent around once per week, to carry out post processing work, attend internal meetings, training sessions and catch ups.

If you would like more information about Surveying or about our Training Programme, please email us at the address on the left.

Benefits: We have a host of great employee benefits including, but not limited to;

  • Enhanced employer contributory pension scheme
  • Enhanced life assurance scheme
  • Favourable absence pay scheme
  • Salary sacrifice cycle scheme.
  • Increasing holiday allowance with length of service
  • Introduce a friend bonus scheme
  • Celebrating success awards (given out when people do something great – which happens a lot)

As well as the above, we will provide you with support and encouragement to learn and develop to truly reach your potential.
