I have a fantastic opportunity for a Senior Quantity Surveyor to join a leading civil engineering & infrastructure contractor delivering a £38m project for a big client on a major project in Croydon. The Senior Quantity Surveyor will be joining the site based team and given the opportunity to build, develop and mentor a team of 4 surveyors on the project which is currently on site and due for completion in late 2020.
My client is one of the UK's leading infrastructure & civil engineering contractors operating across the energy, water, infrastructure and building sectors. It's an exciting time in their 60 year history with ambitious and exciting plans to grow their turnover towards £1bn and gain tier one status within the coming years. These growth plans and their culture of promoting on merit make this an opportunity with some fantastic long term career opportunities.
As the Senior Quantity Surveyor, you'll be overseeing the day to day commercial delivery of the project which includes the design, installation & commissioning of a new high voltage cable circuit between Croydon and 3 other sites in the local area. Your role as the Senior Quantity Surveyor will include acting as a mentor for the AQS & Project QS's on the project alongside the following duties:
- Undertaking contract administration including change management
- Challenge & manage cost control and cost mitigation
- Prepare, negotiate and agree change events
- Maximise cash position including WIP control, cash flow and improvement plans
- Contract negotiation
- Administration of supplier & subcontractor accounts
- Identify and mitigate commercial risks, value engineering and opportunities
- Acting as a mentor in the development of other surveyors
Alongside the long term and realistic career progression, my client is also offering the successful Senior Quantity Surveyor the support of an experienced, approachable Senior Commercial Team, exposure to exciting and interesting projects, APC support and a competitive salary & package that includes:
- Starting salary of £55k to £62k
- Car / Travel allowance of £7k
- 27 days annual leave + 8 bank holidays
- Contributory pension
- Private healthcare
- Payment of professional fees
Senior Quantity Surveyors considering this opportunity will need to have experience working on projects procured on the NEC contract, excellent communication skills, confident when working directly with clients and enjoy supporting and mentoring less experienced surveyors.
This would be a fantastic opportunity for a Quantity Surveyor looking for rapid career progression or someone living locally but commuting further afield and keen on the idea of working locally.
