I'm an experienced engineering surveyor from australia and was just wondering what the rates of pay and hours are for surveyors in the UK (i'm not a licensed land surveyor). I know in the winter it would be considerably less day time hours than ours down here in Aus. I am looking to do similar work over there, e.g. Civil works, road construction, Hi Rise, railways etc...


for comparison in Melbourne working on High Rise building set outs I was earning AUD $45 (25 GBP) per hour plus overtime after 8 hours in 2019. Currently working in a civil role that is paying AUD $700 (380 GBP) per day. 


any info would be greatly appreciated.
