Quantity Surveyor x 15 – RC Frames & Groundworks in Bedford

Quantity Surveyor x 15 Needed

ABOUT THE COMPANY

I have been asked to look for Quantity Surveyors / Senior Quantity Surveyors by over 15 different well-respected Concrete Frame and/or Groundwork subcontractors based in and around London / South East.

If interested, I am happy to divulge company names and details when we first speak to establish if you want to progress or not (as I appreciate you may or may not be interested in certain companies against others).

What I can say is these options vary from £20m turnover subcontractors, to £200m+ turnover subcontractors, so there is a variety of sized organisations to consider, all with a variety of career options to offer and all have specifically approached me to find them people, so these are live vacancies.

Office Locations – 15+ positions available:

  • Hertfordshire x 2
  • North West + West London x 2
  • North London x 2
  • East London x 2
  • Central London x 3
  • Surrey x 2
  • Kent x 1
  • Essex x 2
  • Bedfordshire x 2

ABOUT THE ROLE

Each opportunity will involve the usual surveying 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 and/or associated groundwork packages for a mixture of residential and commercial clients.

Each opportunity will report to the company’s commercial director and you will be responsible for anywhere from 1 to 5 live packages at any one time (depending on your level of experience and the individual package sizes). Package values for each of these contractors range from £1m up to £50m each (with the majority being between £5m to £25m each) and all are in or around London.

REQUIREMENTS

The requirements for these opportunities are fairly straight forward;

I can only consider individuals who have worked as a Quantity Surveyor or Senior Quantity Surveyor for either Groundwork or Concrete Frame subcontractors/principal contractors in the UK. My clients have been fairly specific on this point.

Based on the locations, these roles would suit individuals based in or around London, and while some office locations will suit you more than others, it is worth noting, at least two of these positions offer remote working and the rest will all involve a certain amount of autonomy as you will be responsible for managing your own diary to get around your own site locations.

And due to the technical nature of these opportunities, it is also crucial that all applicants are degree qualified in Quantity Surveying or Commercial Management.

REWARDS AND BENEFITS

For the right professionals our clients are looking to offer market leading packages including a strong starting salary or day rate with added benefits.

If PAYE you can expect a starting salary ranging from £60,000 to £110,000 depending on your experience, plus a car allowance, full benefits and targeted related bonuses.

If self-employed, day rates range roughly from around £300 to £450 per day (depending on your experience) and you will be covered for travel costs and you will also be given project related bonuses.

From Quantity Surveyors to Site Managers to Civil Engineers, we work to the same objective of helping to enhance their careers.

And our relationships don’t end on day one of a new role – we pride ourselves on our ability to build long-lasting relationships with both clients and construction professionals.

What our clients say

We have worked with Alex Wallace and the Cityscape Recruitment team for a number of years now and find their service excellent.

They supply well matched and vetted candidates and very quickly understood all our requirements. They have always demonstrated good market knowledge and an ability to deliver to our requirements.

Commercial Director,
Main Contractor

I have used Cityscape Recruitment multiple times over the last 5 years. Very pleasant to deal with and all candidates put forward for interview are well suited to the position and well vetted by the team, so there is no time wasted with unsuitable applicants. I would highly recommend Cityscape. I intend to use them again in the future should any vacancies become available.

Operations Director,
Platt and Reilly Ltd

The Cityscape Recruitment team has always been great to deal with. Always ready to listen to our needs and requirements, a quality some recruiters do not appreciate or have, then advising where they can assist in our staff procurement. We look forward to working with Laura and Cityscape in the coming years.

When you first contact us, be that through direct contact, responding to an advert or applying through our website, we will connect you with a consultant who works in your specialist area. 

Initially, they will arrange a meeting to talk through your CV and career history. They will encourage you to go into detail about your background and experiences, capabilities and responsibilities, personal circumstances and any other factors they feel are relevant to help them build up a well-rounded profile of you. 

We take extraordinary care in matching professionals to an opportunity – one that will help enhance their careers and a clients’ team. We therefore also use this meeting to empower you in your career. Using our extensive knowledge of the construction industry, we would provide in-depth overviews of businesses, projects and available roles, and guidance on where your strengths will add the most value and career potential. 

After this meeting, the consultant will speak to a number of their clients about you and your CV. Who they speak to can be either jointly agreed upon or you can trust the judgement and expertise of the consultant to contact clients they feel are the best fit for your experience and goals.

If any clients are interested in meeting with you, the consultant will manage the interview process, coaching you before any interviews if required. (Further guidance can be found here.)

If you are successful in receiving an offer(s), our consultant will communicate this with you and help to negotiate the offer(s) and any other terms of employment. 

Finally, we will support you in resigning from your current role, navigating potential counter offers and starting your new role.
