Job Description:

A fast-growing construction company has a requirement for an experienced Quantity Surveyor to join their growing team. They are looking for an ambitious individual who can buy into the company culture and is keen on quickly progressing within their career to a senior level. The business is still in its infancy and you’ll be leading on small projects ranging from £50,000 to £500,000 and the position will be very diverse, giving you experience on working on numerous sectors across Industrial, Commercial, Retail & Residential.

About the Role?

You will work closely with the director and be giving responsibility for your own schemes early on. You will be required to:

  • Take off/measure/quantify projects for pricing/estimating purposes;
  • Build sub-contractor packages for procurement purposes, using JCT forms of contract;
  • Estimate project works based on labour/plant/material build-ups;
  • Procure site materials for the site manager;
  • Manage the cash flow of a project, reporting when amounts are due for payment;
  • Have an awareness of health and safety of a project and the CDM implications for a principle contractor;
  • Understand how profit margins are established and the reporting of this through some reconciliation process;

The construction company is only a part of a wider Property related business. Therefore, you will be giving a hands-on Quantity Surveyor position that sits within a larger property team, giving you a better picture of the industry and working with other technical disciplines. The position will suit someone who is keen on progressing in their career as the company have big growth plans in place which, overtime, mean a Senior level position could be offered.
