About The Role

We are now looking for a Design Surveyor to join the team on a 40-hour weekly contract, supporting the showroom throughout the full week.   

As a Design Surveyor, your role will be to provide an expert home measure service to our customers. You’ll visit the customer in their home, complete a survey on their kitchen and record all details electronically before uploading to the Wren network.
