Job Description


An exciting opportunity has arisen for a Quantity Surveyor, within our Quantity Surveying Team.  

Come and join our new team  

At Karbon we build, manage and look after homes for people across the North.  And then we go further, we give them the strong foundations they need to crack on with life.  We want to build better lives for our customers, not just better homes. Everything we do is for their security, health and happiness under their own roofs, in their communities and out there in the wider world. 

Since our formation in 2017, we’ve been focused on delivering on our three strategic aims - to provide as many good quality homes as we can; to deliver excellent service to our customers; and to shape strong, sustainable places for our communities.  

Our footprint covers the North East of England and Yorkshire, south from the Scottish border to almost as far as the Humber, where diverse communities face differing opportunities and challenges.  

Some customers just need an affordable home, or a way onto the property ladder.  Others might need a bit more – financial advice, community services, sheltered accommodation or even training that can lead to a new job.  Whatever people need to feel more secure, confident and happy with where they’re at, we work our heart out to provide it.
