  • Specialist Sub Contract
  • Middlesex

North West London / Middlesex

£75,000 – £100,000 per annum + package


About the Role:

I am looking for a Senior Quantity Surveyor for a Concrete Frame and Groundwork subcontractor who are based in North West London but operate both in the city centre and around the M25.

This role will involve the usual senior surveyor 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 initially 3 lives packages. The initial three packages range in value from £5m to £15m.

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 Company:

Established over 20 years ago this business currently turn over around £100m per annum operating within the specialist field of reinforced concrete frames and groundworks. With head offices based in Middlesex / Greater London, they have projects based in and around London, working with both main contractors and developers carrying out packages ranging from £1m up to £20m each.

Over the past 12+ years I have worked closely with the directors of this business and have seen them build a fantastic team and reputation. The business has expanded over this time and with continued plans to develop the business, they are still able to offer exciting career opportunities for those who join. This business has an excellent staff retention rate and I truly believe that is because they maintain the perfect balance between rewarding their staff, treating them well and being able to offer continual good work and progression.

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 £75,000 to £100,000 depending on your experience, plus a car allowance, full benefits and a targeted project related bonus.

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.
