Are you an Assistant Quantity Surveyor who is ready for their next step in their career? Or a Quantity Surveyor who is ready for a new challenge and a new environment? Then we would urge you to read on as our client has JUST created a new role within their Commercial Team and it could have your name on it?! The role will be covering projects which are nationwide, however, many current projects are situated within the South of England fyi.
This role will be working within a small commercial team amongst 4 others, all who have a passion for QS. The sector that my client is linked to is the commercial / industrial construction industry. A great opportunity to work with a company who are the leaders in their field, they have grown organically in the past and love to mould people internally, they are now experiencing huge success and are having to turn down business! Hence the need to expand this department and bring in a new Quantity Surveyor to join the team… A friendly place to work, great colleagues within the Commercial team, who are all working to the same objectives… If you are wanting or feel ready for a move then this is a company you will want to talk to….. They are extremely customer centric, thus take their reputation incredibly seriously AND THE GREAT NEWS is that we have never had anyone interview with this company that hasn’t wanted to work for them!…. So not only are they a good employer, but they are also clearly going places and are looking for talented, committed employees who are wanting to be on their journey with them…
Interviews for this role we are anticipating will take place asap. – so do not delay in contacting us to find out whether it could be a good fit for you…
To be fully transparent, this role requires a QS to have a good understanding and enthusiasm of construction law (specifically JCT and NEC contracts)
