  • Permanent

Are you a Quantity Surveyor who has experience of working with Residential Projects? Do you live in Wiltshire, Hampshire, Berkshire, or Surrey? Are you seeking a competitive salary, an exciting package and the opportunity to work with a Tier One Developer?

My client is a Tier One Developer with high spec residential projects within Hampshire and Berkshire.

They are looking to recruit Quantity Surveyors at different levels which will be project based on a £200 million residential development. Due to the amount of work that they have on currently as they have a very strong reputation, they will be looking permanent Quantity Surveyors who are looking for career progression within a reputable organisation.

There is a strong team in place but due how busy they are they are looking for somebody who can come in and ideally hit the ground running so people with no experience will not be suitable.

The ideal candidate will have over 4 year's experience in construction and know how to work on a project from inception to completion. So somebody who can get involved at the tender, price it, appoint sub-contractors and then manage the project until final accounts.

The successful quantity surveyors will report into the Commercial Manager and ideally look after a couple of projects, other duties will include:

  • Provide feasibility cost estimates, provide cost advice of alternative design solutions and offer commercial advice in the development of the design prior to appointment of sub-contractors.
  • Input to and develop the trade package specific procurement strategy and subsequently the production of tender documents, tender assessment and trade contractor appointment.
  • Deliver and/or engage with the delivery of post contract duties including payment, cost reporting and trade contract administration.
  • Engage with and build on existing and new sub-contractors and suppliers.
  • Deliver better buying, supply chain management to deliver an optimised cost & value solution.
  • Fulfil the lead role for closing the procurement of trade packages, including the conclusion of tender adjudication to deliver a fixed price lump sum.
  • Generate, challenge and deliver the principles of Value Management opportunities during design development, tendering and delivery stages of the project.
  • Working on site with the sub-contractors, monitoring and paying them with completed works
  • Working on any variations with the client and supply chain

In my opinion this is great for somebody who wants to get out of London or work closer to home, but also to work for a company that treat their staff well, pay people on time and also a company that are growing at a steady rate.
