Senior Quantity Surveyor

RC Frame & Groundwork Packages – East London

£70,000 to £90,000 plus car allowance, bonus and benefits (or £325 to £400 per day)

About the Opportunity:

We have been asked to look for a Quantity Surveyor / Senior Quantity Surveyor for one of our leading Concrete Frame and Groundwork subcontractors based in East London.

This opportunity will involve the usual surveying duties (i.e. taking projects from start to final account making sure budgets are maintained and profit levels are maximised while reporting any necessary changes) on reinforced concrete (RC) frame and associated groundwork packages.

This opportunity will report to the company’s commercial director and you will be responsible for 3-5 live packages at any one time. Package values usually range from £3m up to £15m each and all are in and around East London.

About the Requirements:

The requirements for this role are fairly straightforward;

We can only consider individuals who have experience working as a Quantity Surveyor or Senior Quantity Surveyor for either Groundwork or Concrete Frame subcontractors in the UK. Our client only wants to consider individuals from a rival subcontractor background.

Based on the location, this role would suit someone based in or around London who can commute on a daily basis into and around East London.

And due to the technical nature of this role, it is also crucial that all applicants are degree qualified in Quantity Surveying or Commercial Management.

About the Employer:

Currently operating with a turnover of around £50 million per annum, this privately-owned specialist concrete frame and groundwork subcontractor build packages ranging from £1m up to £15 million each. They have become preferred supplies to a number of top-tier residential main contractors and developers, such as Kier, Telford Homes, Osborne, Barratt Homes and Hill Partnerships, with the majority of their projects being inside the M25 and in and around East London predominantly.

This business has a very good reputation in the market with both its clients and with rivals. They maintain a quality approach to everything they do while partnering with businesses rather than fighting them. They have a low staff turnover and an inner core of staff that really work well together as a team. And like many others, they are still growing and looking at ways to expand what they already do, while keeping growth at a considered rate.

On a side note, to back up the relationship the MD of the business has with his inner core, most years the team are known to go on skiing holidays and similar together. Not only to grab some well-earned recuperation time but also to help them forge as a team at the centre of the business. This company really does thrive from maintaining relationships both internally and with everyone they work with.

About the Benefits & Rewards:

For the right professional, our client is looking to offer a market-leading package including a strong starting salary or rate with added benefits.

If PAYE paid you can expect a starting salary ranging from £70,000 to £90,000 depending on your experience, plus a car allowance, full benefits and a targeted results-related bonus.

If self-employed, day rates range from around £325 to £400 per day can be considered (depending on experience) and you will be covered for travel costs and you will also be given project-related bonuses.
