Candidates will need to have good attention to detail and thoroughly review the property to ensure the correct trades people are scheduled for the work.

In addition to the initial inspection, successful candidates will also complete post inspections ensuring they providing honest feedback on the standard of work completed in the properties.

The right candidate will also have:
