So, because of this, it’s vital you have a degree in Quantity Surveying and Commercial Management or Civil Engineering. As well as being academically strong you will not be considered for this opportunity if you don’t have a stable background working within Civil Engineering (ideally for a sub-contractor). A stable background is somebody who spends on average 4 years per contractor they have worked for.
