Quantity Surveyor or Senior Quantity Surveyor

Concrete Frame & Groundwork Subcontractor

North West London based – projects in and around London


£60,000 to £90,000 per annum

£250 to £400 per day


About the Company:

Established over 20 years ago and based out of their head office in North West London, this £100 million turnover business specialises in Concrete Frames, Groundworks and associated works.

Current project package values range from £1m to £20m each with jobs in and around London. Sectors of work include residential, commercial, leisure and education sectors. We have been preferred suppliers to this company for over 10 years and maintain a strong relationship with all the directors of the business.

There is opportunity for development with this business, so anyone who is currently hitting a glass ceiling with their current employer, would be refreshed with what they could accomplish at this business!


About the Role:

I am looking for a Quantity Surveyor / Senior Quantity Surveyor with a background in Groundworks and Concrete Frame construction to work in and around the North West London area.

This role will involve the usual surveying / commercial management duties (i.e. taking projects from start to final account making sure budgets are maintained and profit levels are maximised while reporting any necessary changes) on reinforced concrete (RC) frame packages and associated groundwork & foundation packages.

If successful you will report to the company’s commercial director and will be responsible for either one large package (i.e. RC frame & groundwork value around £20 million or above) or a group of projects (usually around 3 to 6 at any one time) in or around North West London.

Individual package values could range from £1 million up to £15 million each usually with some packages going above this level on the largest jobs.

Candidates must be degree qualified in Quantity Surveying or Commercial Management and must have experience in this role while working for rival RC frame or groundwork subcontractors.


About the Requirements:

The requirements for this role are fairly straight forward;

We can only consider individuals who have experience working as a Quantity Surveyor or Senior Quantity Surveyor for either Groundwork or Concrete Frame subcontractors in the UK. Our client only wants to consider individuals from a rival company background.

And due to the technical nature of this role, it is also crucial that all applicants are degree qualified in Quantity Surveying or Commercial Management.


About the Salary / Rewards:

For the right person our client is looking to offer a market leading package including a strong salary or rate with added benefits.

If PAYE paid you can expect a basic salary ranging from £60,000 to £90,000 depending on your experience, plus a car allowance, full benefits and a targeted project related bonus.

If self-employed, day rates range from £250 to £400 per day and you will be covered for travel costs and you will also be given project related bonuses.


How to Apply:

I am more than happy to discuss this opportunity with people over the phone or face to face in a fully confidential manner. This is an incestuous sector and I fully understand the importance of keeping things discrete.

Alternatively, it would be ideal to see a copy of your CV to understand your previous experience and employment. In line with GDPR, nothing will be done with your CV / details until we have discussed the role in detail anyway, but having gained an understanding of your formal past, this may help when we come to talk and discuss the option.

Either way, my contact details are listed below:
