Job Type
  • Are you looking for an opportunity to enhance your commercial abilities?
  • Would you benefit from working for a specialist contractor?
  • Do you aspire to be part of a team managing a £20m package of work?

Then this will be right for you!

“We thrive upon repeat business, and the main reason we believe ourselves to be the go-to contractor is due to how well we treat our employees. It's like what Richard Branson said, ‘happy employees means happy customers'. Therefore we tend to focus on that.” – Commercial Manager.

A specialist contractor has recently won a £20m package of work in West London including the delivery of earthworks, drainage and remediation solutions for a new gas facility. They require a Quantity Surveyor to join their team responsible for the delivery of the commercial functions of the project.

There is a strong ethos throughout the company that they treat the employees well, with the majority of staff in their commercial team (or people that have grown through the commercial division to directorship) being with the business for over 5 years. They have no reason to leave as they feel they are empowered, given the correct amount of flexibility and are generally very well looked-after.

Given the current market, their order book is rapidly increasing and they are being consistent in their success of winning new tenders.

With good performance and these successful tenders continuing, you could be managing one of these projects yourself as a Senior Quantity Surveyor within the next two years.
