As a group, they currently turnover £120M and have the capability of working as both a principal and sub-contractor for their blue chip clients.

Our client recruits only the best people, who are motivated, dedicated and can work with a professional outlook. Having worked closely with this client for many years and having met several Directors, I would highly recommend them as they offer an excellent working environment where they encourage professionals to grow, develop and enhance their career. Furthermore, with a close management team, the business has the ability to offer a real family feel, assuring that you will be a name rather than just a number within the organisation.

Furthermore, it is vital you have proven success of working for a specialist demolition or enabling works contractor in the South East and as this is a permanent opportunity, you should be able to demonstrate longevity in the workplace.

Please note, whilst estimating experience is preferable, my client is open to considering a Senior Quantity Surveyor with demolition experience who is keen to move over to estimating.
