We have a unique and exciting opportunity for a design and project focussed chartered building surveyor to join our specialist estates project team at University Hospital Southampton NHS Foundation Trust (UHS).


The estates project team is a forward-thinking team working to demonstrate a private-practice and commercial approach within an NHS Trust. The team is developing software systems and processes, incorporating a full BIM approach for all projects.

The Trust has a capital plan which includes significant new buildings as well as a number of building pathology, refurbishment and alteration projects to improve the existing clinical spaces. Reporting to a senior project manager, you will lead in the assessment of the clinical requirements, prepare architectural designs and specifications and organise the delivery of these projects in order to substantially improve the experience of patients and staff.

You will be part of a team that enables you to develop your skills and healthcare design and project management expertise in an exciting and progressive acute hospital.

We are looking for an individual with:

  • A proven track record of assessing problems
  • Experience designing and managing construction projects from inception to completion
  • Experience working on multi-disciplinary projects for a range of stakeholders
  • The ability to manage a number of concurrent projects in various stages of development
