Senior Quantity Surveyor / Commercial Manager

Large Concrete Frames Package – Barking, East London

£75,000 – £100,000 per annum + benefits + bonus


About the Employer:

Established over 30 years ago and based out of their head office just North of London, in the south of Hertfordshire this £160 million turnover business specialises in Concrete Frame Construction. They have a strong coverage of projects with package values ranging from £5 million up to £60 million each, covering primarily the residential and commercial sectors while also including several key sporting fixtures in their project portfolio.

We have worked closely with this company for over 10 years and what sets this business apart is their focus on quality, delivery and targeting the best jobs in London. Many businesses say that quality is at the forefront of what they do, but this business is really well known for it.


About the Opportunity:

This business rarely recruits due to their excellent staff retention, but due to growth we have been asked to find a Senior Quantity Surveyor / Commercial Manager who is capable of overseeing a large reinforced concrete frame package in Barking, East London. This is an exciting a rare opportunity to join such an excellent contractor.

This role will involve the usual surveying 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 groundworks.

This role will report to the company’s commercial director and will be responsible managing additional junior staff also.


About the Requirements:

The requirements for this role are fairly straight forward;

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

Based on the location settings, this role would ideally suit someone based in or around London who can commute on a daily basis into and around East London.

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 Rewards:

This business offers above average packages to ensure their staff are happy with their income and beyond this, to ensure they see this as a long term move when joining the company. Stability of employment and maintaining a low staff turnover is important in line with everything this business stands for. For this position we have been given a rough bracket of £75,000 to £100,000 per annum as the salary which will have an additional car allowance, standard benefits and the structured bonus scheme on top. For individuals looking for a self-employed payment method, we can also offer rates in the region of £325 to £450 per day plus benefits.


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.
