I am looking for someone who can hit the ground running, so you will need to have a great understanding of roads, infrastructure, and groundworks projects. I need someone who has worked in these industries as a Quantity Surveyor or Estimator. I am looking for someone who can work in a team but is also happy to work by themselves, someone who is happy to get involved in different things, and someone who can make a real difference.
