The position for Graduate Land Auditor in Hemel Hempstead is no longer available
Graduate Land Auditor
RSK is an international multi-disciplinary consultancy, employing over 800 staff. We are currently working as a consultant on the Homes and Communities Agency Green Estates management project. This is primarily concerned with government-owned land awaiting development, and encompasses a wide variety of site types and land uses.
We are seeking a land auditor to join our survey team based in the Hemel Hempstead office. The team plays an important role in the management of the HCA’s landholdings and we work closely alongside other disciplines in the team to deliver a full management service.
The team survey the landholdings from several aspects to ensure that the sites are protected from a trespass perspective, allowing the land to retain its value and development potential. This involves using a dedicated and bespoke field tool to collect data on site, including site boundary information, access information and all other relevant features. The survey is used to ensure the security of the landholdings in terms of value and development potential. The data is collected into a database; and based on this information remedial site works can be implemented following liaison with the client.
The project also manages issues relating to water safety. We survey and monitor over 700 waterbodies, which involves recording data based on the nature of the water, features, location and site usage. Recommendations are discussed with the client following survey.
Currently the project is expanding into an additional field which involves managing health and safety issues across the Homes and Communities Agency land portfolio. Surveys will determine a comprehensive assessment of risk on sites.
