About the company:

Tired of just being treated as just a number within a large corporate residential house basher or feeling underwhelmed by a lack of interesting projects? Have you hit a glass ceiling and lost track of your 5 year plan in terms of progression and future career prospects?

I currently have an opportunity to work for a profitable privately owned medium sized company on luxury bespoke developments between circa £1.5m – £4.5m. With a proven track record for over 20 years they pride themselves on having an excellent reputation for building high-end signature new homes backed by an industry leading level of client relations and after sales service. The company has an impeccable reputation for their high quality service and it’s really important the individual stepping into the new role maintains this and is the correct fit for the business

About the opportunity:

I have been working very closely with my client for the last year, building a team of personable, highly-motivated, and collaborative individuals that are all working together to aid the growth of the business. The Commercial Manager has pinpointed an opportunity for a new Assistant Quantity Surveyor to join the existing Commercial team. My client are currently on site with around 7/8 live developments that are currently being managed hands-on by the Commercial Manager, Quantity Surveyor and a Buyer. With the addition of a new Assistant Quantity Surveyor my client hopes to split the work load and have an even spread across all live sites. Typically, most of these schemes are built for high net worth individuals and therefore require an eye for detail, good client facing skills and the ability to adapt to changes day-to-day.

With the recent appointment of a new management team with a wealth of high-spec residential experience there will be logical, transparent benefits with the development of this role as the success of the business stream develops. This is an excellent opportunity for those with the desire to achieve results by hard work and who wish to participate in the future of a progressive organisation. You will be working for one of the supportive and personable Commercial Managers I have come across who really takes pride in seeing his team achieve.

About the benefits and rewards:

The company provides a basic salary of up to £35,000 plus a pension and bonus.

About the requirements:

You must have at least 2-3 years Quantity Surveying experience with good knowledge of residential projects. Some client facing experience would be preferable.
