Qualifications and Training
Most positions will require a BSc Honours Degree in surveying, engineering or construction in England; the equivalent L6 NVQ / HNC in Wales, or the Scottish equivalent. For a senior position a Masters Degree in a related subject could be needed, or chartered status with a relevant body.
However, experience is often very important too, so entrants with other qualifications might be considered; for example, extensive experience with modelling software is particularly desirable, as is additional training in sustainability, such as an Accredited Level 5 Energy Assessor qualification.
