About the company:

Our client is a specialist building company whose head office is in Central London. They are a leading construction management consultancy and principle contracting business, taking on a variety of projects for both housing associations and private developers. Although a relatively new business, my client have a selection of key directors with a wealth of experience within the main contracting and developer sectors of industry. They are set up to be able to take on a wide breadth of projects from large scale new build housing association (up to 350 units) to smaller more bespoke private developments. Recent successful tendering has led to a strong order book for 2021/2022 which has led the need to selectively recruit for key commercial positons within the business. The organization provides excellent career potential for professionals joining the business. This company has a very close, friendly atmosphere with the sense of a family company.

About the opportunity:

I have been working very closely with my client since the start of 2019, building a team of personable, highly-motivated, and collaborative individuals that are all working together to aid the growth of the business. The Commercial Director has pinpointed an opportunity for a new Senior Quantity Surveyor to join the existing Commercial team. My client have picked up a new construction management contract with a major housing association taking on a circa 350 unit residential scheme near Banbury. The project will be completed over 6 phases of construction, with the first 52 units in the 1st phase currently at groundworks level. The scheme requires a Senior Quantity Surveyor with strong knowledge of procuring all trades packages as well as detailed tender analysis and variations. You will be expected to send around 2 days on site near Banbury and the rest of the time in the office in Central London.

My client have a small business mentality, they are a lean team with everyone working hard across their specific discipline to achieve tight deadlines and profit margins. This is a superb opportunity for someone who wishes to take on large amounts of responsibility with the chance to quickly progress in company with no ‘glass ceiling’. You will be working for one of the supportive and personable Managing Directors I have come across who really takes pride in seeing his staff achieve.
