Site inspectors monitor all work carried out on a construction site to ensure safety and standards are upheld.
Salaries typically range depending on location, employer and level of responsibility.
An Honours Degree in England; the equivalent L6 NVQ / HNC in Wales, or the Scottish equivalent, can be desirable, particularly in engineering, construction, law or health and safety. Some positions may require chartered status with a relevant body.
However, industry experience is often very important too, so entrants with other qualifications might be considered, for example: IOSH Working Safely, IOSH Managing Safely, or CITB Site Safety Plus training courses.
