Josie joined Rapleys in July 2018 as a Senior Building Surveyor in our Birmingham Office to strengthen our Building Consultancy offer in the second city. With 12 years surveying experience, Josie has benefitted from working in education, healthcare, local authority, retail and automotive sectors.
Formerly a Managing Surveyor at Faithful+Gould, Josie has worked with a diverse range of clients and delivered the full spectrum of surveying services including technical due diligence, design and specification, dilapidations, PPM surveys and statutory compliance matters. Most recently Josie has worked client side as a property manager at Ei Group, the UK’s largest pub portfolio operator. The role included condition and compliance coordination, dilapidations management and delivery of capital investment schemes.
Whilst at Faithful+Gould, Josie was project lead on a two year Property Rationalisation Programme for a local authority client. During this commission she supported the organisation in realising £4m of property savings by maximising the use of retained offices and/or customer spaces and disposing of surplus properties. The all encompassing role included designing and delivering office refurbishments, introducing modern and flexible working practices and managing the cultural change piece with end users as well as handling disposal activities.
