Job Type: Permanent, Full Time

Salary: £60000 - £90000/annum + benefits + bonuses

Quantity Surveyor / Senior Quantity Surveyor

£200m Turnover - Infrastructure, Concrete Structures & Groundwork Subcontractor

£60,000 - £90,000 + Package (depending on experience)

Glasgow office, with projects around Scotland and the North West - the ability to work from office, sites, and home (hybrid)

About the Opportunity:

I am looking for an experienced Quantity Surveyor / Senior Quantity Surveyor who is interested in joining a leading infrastructure, concrete frame, and groundwork subcontractor. Your position in the business will report directly to the UK commercial director and the managing director for the North and you will be responsible for overseeing a variety of infrastructure, concrete, and groundwork packages from award through to final account. There is room for progression within this business as they are currently turning over around £200 million per annum across the country, but this division in the North has huge plans for growth, and with that will come progressional routes. I am 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 infrastructure, concrete frame, or groundwork quantity surveyor and you want to join one of the absolute best businesses in this sector with lots of opportunities for people to develop, this could be the perfect option.

About the Company:

Like many other contractors in this sector, this organisation was formed by two leading directors from previous businesses that joined forces to create something new. The organisation has grown to encompass a multitude of divisions covering projects across the whole of the UK. From large infrastructure & energy projects in Scotland to the largest reinforced concrete frame & groundwork packages in London, they can offer the experience and capability to deliver to a variety of clients. They have in-house remediation, demolition, groundwork, RC frame, tower crane, and precast divisions that support their project needs.

Having met the owners and directors of this business myself, I would personally like to add that I am truly excited about this business's future. They have already accomplished so much, but with growth plans already well underway, the future only looks positive for this organisation. Their brand is focused on exceptional service, with quality and safety at the forefront while focusing on maintaining and strengthening the relationships they have with some of the best main contractors, developers, and direct clients across the UK. I have walked away from multiple meetings with this business both excited and impressed and if you meet them too, I am almost willing to guarantee you will feel the same.

About the Requirements:

To be successful individuals need to have worked for rival infrastructure, concrete frame, or groundwork subcontractors in the UK as a Quantity Surveyor or Senior Quantity Surveyor. Your hard work will be rewarded and opportunity will be there but 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 the Glasgow area (or have the ability to be based near there for work). Travel will include projects all over Scotland and down as far as the North West of the country. Hybrid working is available, with a number of the surveyors splitting their time working from the office, sites, or remotely.

About the Benefits:

For these opportunities, I am targeting anyone looking to earn between £60,000 to £90,000 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 or similar basis with pay rates negotiated to reach a similar annual amount.

But aside from the earning potential, this opportunity really does offer the right individual 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.
