Senior Quantity Surveyor – can work remotely most of the week

Concrete Frames & Groundwork Subcontractor

Surrey Office – covering projects in and around North West London

£70,000 – £100,000 per annum + full package


About the Employer:

Having been established for over 30 years within the specialist field of concrete frames and groundworks, this business is, without doubt, one of the leading names within this field (literally top 10 name). Current turnover is over £120m per annum and this has progressed steadily year on year going back over the last decade. They currently complete packages ranging in value from £5m up to £50m each on a mixture of residential and commercial projects throughout London and the surrounding areas.

This business prides itself on its high repeat business rate and its in-house capability to take complex projects from design through to completion. They are family owned and still maintain the family feel they have had over the last 10+ years I have known them, which is important, because not all do as they grow.

I would highly recommend this business as a polished environment where individuals can grow and flourish working on some of the best projects in London.


About the Opportunity:

I am looking for a Senior Quantity Surveyor for a Concrete Frame and Groundwork subcontractor based in the South East.

This role will involve the usual 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 two large packages or a group of projects (usually around 4 to 5 at any one time) in or around North West London.

Individual package values could range from £5 million (smallest) up to £50 million each.


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 Concrete Frame and Groundwork 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 £70,000 to £100,000 depending on your experience, plus a car allowance, full benefits, and a targeted project-related bonus.

If self-employed, day rates range from £300 to £450 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 these opportunities 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 roles in detail anyway, but having gained an understanding of your formal past may help when we come to talk and discuss the options.

Either way, my contact details are listed below:

About Me, Your Consultant:

My name is Andrew Jackson and I am one of the founding directors of Cityscape Recruitment Ltd. I have over 15 years of experience in civil engineering & construction recruitment, during which time, I have specialised in the niche sectors of concrete frames, groundworks, basement construction, and demolition.

So, what does that mean for you? It means, I work with the vast majority of the groundwork & concrete frame businesses in the UK and I can help not only introduce you, but I can give you up-to-date information on each of them (the good parts and the less positive parts), helping you make an informed decision so you can take your career forward. I’ve been doing this for a fair while now and I’ve maintained a positive reputation doing what I do because I don’t tell people false truths, I tell them everything I know and then let them choose. My job is to get you the options, give you the information, and then let you decide what feels right for you.
