Business: Griffith City Council

Name: Royce Johns

Occupation: Trainee Building Surveyor

Years in the workforce: 13 years 

What do you do each day?

  • Assess Construction Certificates.

  • Conduct inspections on storm water, drainage, building, swimming pools and the like.

  • Report on inspections.

What do you like most about your job?

It relates to my previous work as a builder, I’m not confined to being behind a computer the whole day, as the inspections create the opportunity to be outdoors & be on-site.

What did you do to qualify?

  • There were no previous qualifications required, only essential criteria such as driver’s license and white card.

  • Prior building & construction experience was preferable.

What’s next in your career?

  • My short term goal is to gain qualification as an A3 Certifier, then with experience I hope to reach A1. This will require several years experience.
