Quantity Surveyor / Senior Quantity Surveyor x 2

£130m Turnover – Concrete Frame & Groundwork Subcontractor


London Projects / Essex & London Office – the ability to work from office, site, and home (hybrid)

£60,000 – £100,000 + Package


About the Opportunity:

I am looking for two experienced Quantity Surveyors / Senior Quantity Surveyors that are interested in joining a growing concrete frame and groundwork subcontractor based on the borders of Essex and East London. Your position in the business will report directly to the commercial director and you will be responsible for overseeing a variety of concrete frame and groundwork packages from award through to final account. There is room for progression within this business as they are currently turning over around £130 million per annum, but they have plans for growth well beyond this. They already have their turnover secured for 2022. We are looking for career-focused individuals who want the opportunity to be part of a close-knit team that is all working towards building a great business in this competitive sector. So, if you are an experienced concrete frame or groundwork quantity surveyor and you want to join a growing business with lots of opportunities for people to develop, this could be the perfect option.


About the Company:

Like many other businesses in this sector, this organisation was formed from two leading directors from previous businesses that joined forces to create something new. The business has a specialist housebuilding groundworks division but the bulk of their work is and always will be focused around the residential concrete frame and groundwork sector. With strong ties to clients such as Berkeley’s, Barratt’s, Bellway and Countryside, this business is growing year on year and is looking to recruit now to help develop the team. It is this growth that will bring opportunity, as those who have aspirations to develop their own careers and possibly manage others, will be given the opportunity as the company climbs.

Also, having met the MD myself, I can add that the clear vision for the business is to offer an exceptional service, with quality and safety at the forefront while focusing on maintaining and strengthening the relationships they have with some of the best developers in town. I walked away from a meeting with them recently excited about their future and impressed by where they are already and since then I’ve had numerous people asking me about them. They have quickly become the one to watch and the one people want to join.


About the Requirements:

To be successful individuals need to have worked for rival groundwork or concrete frame subcontractors in the UK as a Quantity Surveyor or Senior Quantity Surveyor. Your hard work will be rewarded and opportunities will be there but this previous experience in this sector is a must. Due to the technical nature of the position, it is also crucial that all applicants are degree qualified in quantity surveying or commercial management. And due to the location of our client’s office, it is also advisable that applicants are based in or around Essex, Kent, Hertfordshire or London to make the journey a sensible one. Travel in and around town will be expected for site visits but it is expected that a certain proportion of time will be at the office. Hybrid working is available, with a number of the surveyors working 2-3 days from the office, and 2-3 days from site and home.


About the Benefits:

For this opportunity, I am targeting anyone looking to earn between £60,000 to £100,000 per annum (depending if you are a QS or Senior QS). This bracket is flexible and starting figures will be based on experience and previous history but in addition to this our client is offering a comprehensive package including the usual’s such as pension but also a good bonus scheme.

If you would prefer a self-employed payment method, we can consider people on a limited company basis with pay rates negotiated to reach a similar annual amount.

But aside from the earning potential, these opportunities really do offer the right people the exciting career options with a fantastic organisation.


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 (you can get to know me while I get to know you). And I know 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.

Either way, my contact details are listed below:
