Our client, the UK arm of a multi-national project management and engineering consultancy, is looking for an experienced Quantity Surveyor to handle all aspects of Cost Management within their commercial team.
In addition, you’ll ideally be capable of acting as a Project Manager in support of your main duties as a QS.
Our client is unique in that they are independent and employee-owned.
Thus, you get the benefits of a large consultancy, married with the individuality of a smaller, privately-owned organisation who prefers to act around the best interests of its employees and clients, not external shareholders.
They offer an extensive benefits package with 5% pension, Life Insurance, full private Medical Insurance and a Medical Cash Plan (including optical and dental cover), childcare vouchers and cycle to work schemes.
There is also membership to an in-house benefits scheme, offering shopping discounts, savings on cinema tickets, hotel bookings and insurance.
You will receive up to 27 days’ holiday (plus bank holidays) and 2 days charity leave each year.
The client also hosts a number of fun social events throughout the year to encourage strong relationships with teams and the organisation as a whole.
Duties will involve:
As a Project Quantity Surveyor, you will be the commercial team’s QS primarily responsible for all aspects of cost management, working on multi-site projects ranging in value from £200k to £10m.
There’s also a secondary function requiring you to be capable of acting as the Project Manager on several ongoing projects and work packages.
The industry sectors you’ll be working within will include Housing, Healthcare, Culture/Leisure and Education.
Ideally, you’ll have at least five years’ experience working as a QS within the industry sectors described above.
Your CV will be biased towards previous PQS consultancy work, though some contractor-side experience will be okay.
Good pre- and post- contract experience is considered essential, as is experience of working within multi-site projects with multi-million-pound values.
Demonstrable experience of working as a Project Manager will be a strong advantage, as will the ability to use both MS Project and AutoCAD effectively.
Someone who is able to work with autonomy, flexibility, process awareness and a logical, problem-solving mindset would be a good fit within the team.
