Frankston City Council employee Lara Schryver will be able to build on her career after the council secured $150,000 from the State Government’s Women Building Surveyors Program. The program aims to give women new opportunities to become building surveyors, and as the council’s successful applicant, Lara will study and train to become a building surveyor. She will also attend professional development events and opportunities through the program’s partner, the Local Government Professionals Group.

“To be afforded an opportunity to study, work and be provided with mentoring from the LGPro, Municipal Building Surveyors Group, Victorian Building Authority and the Australian Institute of Building Surveyors will be invaluable and provide me with a solid foundation to become a registered building surveyor,” Lara said. “I’m keen to formalise my knowledge with study and use the extensive mentoring to become a well-rounded and informed registered building surveyor and potentially progress to become a municipal building surveyor.”

Lara is the council’s senior building support officer, having joined the council in 1991, and has spent 24 years in the building department gaining experience from the administrative side to a technical understanding of building regulations and enforcement. “For the last three years I’ve been given the opportunity to take on more responsibilities, assessing reports and consents and places of public entertainment applications, and look forward to assessing minor building permit applications. While working at council I’ve always been provided with learning opportunities to improve my skills and knowledge. Council has always been supportive with work/life balance, particularly during starting a family, and this has allowed for my longevity and growth at council.”

Cr Claire Harvey said the industry remained very male-dominated despite ongoing efforts to encourage more women to choose this career path. Surveying is also a rather ‘invisible’ profession in terms of most young people not having an opportunity to connect with surveyors in their everyday lives,” Cr Harvey said. “As a result, very few young people see this as the rewarding and interesting career path that it is.”
