Quantity Surveyor – Kent / SE London – Groundworks & Concrete Frames

Quantity Surveyor / Senior Quantity Surveyor


Reinforced Concrete (RC) Frame & Groundwork Subcontractor – South East London / Kent Based


£60,000 to £90,000 (depending on experience) + Car Allowance + Benefits


About the Company:


Based just outside London this medium to large sized specialist subcontractor is a well-known name in the reinforced concrete frame and groundwork sector (company 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 (as well as demolition, remediation and general civils contracts). Most of their clients are top main contractors and developers but they do also carry out works on private schemes too with packages ranging from £1 million up to £25 million in and around London and the South East. Current turnover for this business is around £100 million per annum and this business is still privately owned.


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 Kent area (inside and outside the M25). Individual package sizes could range from £1 million up to £15 million in this region 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.


Also, for candidates looking for a progressive move, our client has asked us to highlight that there is room for this position to progress and candidates looking to step into a Senior QS / Commercial Managers role, will have the opportunity if the right level of capability is apparent.


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 or groundwork subcontractors 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 or Kent ideally), 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 £60,000 to £90,000 per annum (depending on how much experience has been gained), plus there will be a car allowance (circa £6,000 – £9,000 per annum), annual bonuses and usual company benefits. This is negotiable beyond this level for very experienced individuals.


Our client is also open to candidates who are looking to work on a self-employed basis (i.e. through their own limited companies on a day rate), as well as PAYE (package benefits will vary based on payment method).


To Apply:


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


Or call Andrew Jackson on: 01923 750095.


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.
