Quantity Surveyor – Essex & London – Groundwork & RC Frame Contractor

Quantity Surveyor / Senior Quantity Surveyor


Reinforced Concrete (RC) Frame & Groundwork Subcontractor – Essex Based Office with projects in Essex, London (North, East, Central & South), Kent, Hertfordshire


£50,000 to £75,000 (depending on experience) + Car Allowance + Full Benefits


About the Company:


Based in Essex but with work all around the South East (primarily London), this large specialist subcontractor is a well-known name in the reinforced concrete frame and groundwork sector (client name can be given once contact is established).


As a complete business they have the ability to take on everything from groundwork / foundations packages, substructure RC works or superstructure multi-storey concrete frames. Most of their clients are top residential contractors and developers but they do also carry out works on commercial and educational schemes too.


Current turnover is around £125 million per annum and this business has been trading for over 30 years.


About the Role:


Working within the surveying team, you will be responsible for all the commercial matters on a number of Concrete Frame and Groundwork packages around London and the surrounding Home Counties (inside OR outside the M25 – depending on your location).


Individual package sizes could range from £1 million up to £20 million and while reporting to the commercial director you will be expected to take packages from the start through to final account, monitoring costs and maximising profit while working with the operational team to keep projects in line.


Standard daily duties will apply and for this role, candidates will not require any estimating experience.


About the Requirements:


To be considered for this role, candidates will need to be degree qualified in Quantity Surveying or similar and will need to have gained experience working for rival reinforced concrete frame, groundwork or civil engineering contractors in the UK.


Due to the level of this position, it is also important that candidates have the ability to manage their own projects without supervision and are based in the South East (around London), so that the daily commute to our client’s offices and sites, is a reasonable one. Outside of this, the usual QS duties will apply.


About the Salary / Package:


For candidates at the right level of experience our clients are offering a strong basic salary of £50,000 to £75,000 per annum (depending on how much experience has been gained), plus there will be a car allowance (circa £5,000 – £7,500 per annum), pension, bonus and other benefits. This is negotiable beyond these levels for very experienced individuals.

Initially, please forward a copy of your application / CV by email to –

I will be in touch once I have reviewed your details, to discuss the role in more detail, before any details are submitted for consideration by the client. The clients name will also be discussed at this time to guarantee interest before any introductions are made.
