Senior Quantity Surveyor
£60,000 to £68,000 + £7,000 car & package
I have an opportunity for a Senior Quantity Surveyor to join one of the UK's leading infrastructure contractors with a specialist business unit focused on delivering work for clients including UKPN, SSE & National Grid. The Senior Quantity Surveyor will start their career by joining the site based team on a project in South London for a National Grid. You'll be given an opportunity that includes the support to get chartered through the RICS, a competitive salary & package and the support and guidance of an approachable and experienced senior management team.
Reporting to the Commercial Manager of this specialist business unit, you'll be tasked with taking the lead on the day to day commercial management of a £40m package of works that includes the design, supply, installation, testing and commissioning of a new 400kV cable circuit between two major substations in South London. This will include the repair and maintenance of a 10km tunnel, upgrading and replacing existing components and work on the ventilation system. Your role as the Senior Quantity Surveyor will include the mentoring of a small team and providing commercial and contractual advice and guidance on the 2 year programme of works.
As the Senior Quantity Surveyor, you'll be instrumental in the successful delivery of the project which in turn will ensure repeat work from this large, high profile client. You'll be given the support to pursue chartership with the RICS, the opportunity to take full control of your project and a competitive salary & package that includes:
- Starting salary of up to £68,000
- Company car or car allowance of £7,000
- 27 days annual leave
- Private pension contributions
- Private healthcare
- Payment of professional fees
Senior Quantity Surveyors considering this opportunity will need to have experience working for a main contractor and familiar with large utilities, infrastructure or civil engineering projects. You'll need to be confident working with clients, have a strong understanding on the NEC contract and excellent communication skills. You'll also need to have a degree in Quantity Surveying, Civil Engineering or Construction Management. You'll also need to be able to split your time between their office in London and site locations across the capital.
