About the Company / Employer: 

This privately owned developer has the strength of its international group set up while maintaining a family feel as an independent business in the UK. They have numerous awards to their name for the schemes they have designed and delivered already which should give you an idea of the standards they work to. This business is not only looking to build new residential properties, but they are looking to help regenerate areas, develop new and exciting homes and create an end product that really stands apart.

With a huge pipeline of work and having recently been permitted planning on several long-term developments this is the chance to join an extremely stable and profitable business. With everything going on in the current market, with the crisis this country and the greater world is facing, now is the time to consider options with companies who not only support their staff, but can truly offer continuous work in a happy, team focused environment. This business has not had to furlough any of their people. They have not issued any pay cuts. Instead they are leaning on the resources of the business and focusing on driving forward with the people they have on board, protected, cared for and energised for the projects ahead.

The world may be an uncertain place at the moment, but these are still exciting times for businesses such as this, as they have the strength to not only survive this period, but the focus and determination to continue doing what they do well in a responsible manner with the incredible team they have and this project in West London is just the start.


About the Opportunity:

With this scheme and others set to start in the coming months our client currently has two exciting opportunities within the commercial team including this Senior Quantity Surveying position.

As the Senior Quantity Surveyor, you will be expected to manage one the regions flagship projects in West London. The scheme is a major development of circa 1000 units spread across multiple separate blocks.

You will be expected to join at Senior Quantity Surveyor Level, managing an established team of up to 3 Quantity Surveyors of differing experience levels. The scheme is multi-phased and has a real emphasis on diverse mix of design led houses and apartments including RC frame. This will be one of the first parts of a whole regeneration process of this beautiful part of West London.

This is a superb opportunity to join a well-established developer with a huge pipeline of work within London. Although they could be seen as a large corporate entity, my client has a real emphasis unlike other businesses on teams working together in unison to achieve common goals and targets just like what you’d expect at a much smaller family owned organisation. And one thing is for sure, the people who are joining this business, having held long periods of time in positions with leading names all over this sector are feeding back to us how this business really does stand out for all the right reasons.


About the Requirements:

To be considered the criteria is fairly simple.

  • You must be an established Senior Quantity Surveyor who has worked with a top tier developer or contractor in the UK.
  • You must have experience within the residential sector, preferably within multi-phased high-rise development including RC frame blocks.
  • You must have a steady employment history and ideally have experience of managing a team.
  • You must be degree qualified in quantity surveying or commercial management.

If you have the experience in this role, with a similar type of developer or contractor and you have the qualifications, you can be considered for this exciting opportunity right now.


About the Benefits & Rewards:

At this point we have been given a rough salary bracket of £65,000 to £80,000 per annum for this Senior QS opportunity. Obviously, this is always negotiable at the point of interview depending on individuals’ levels of experience. In addition to this you will receive the additional benefits of travel allowance, pension, health care and a target-based bonus scheme which will boost your earnings considerable should your effort be applied.

While the above is all very attractive, I want to reiterate that the driving factor behind anyone wanting to consider this opportunity shouldn’t just be about the money. It should be about the type of business you will possibly be able to join. A business that is growing, developing excellent schemes and is already highly regarded across the whole industry.
