Job Description

Excellent opportunity for an Ambitious Quantity Surveyor looking to further his or her experience with a smaller specialist main contractor, initially working on a new build hotel scheme on the South Coast. The role is to work as No1 Surveyor for the project reporting to the Commercial Manager. Work will be undertaken on a flexible location basis, working between home, the office near Southampton, Hampshire and on site. This is applicable in the current climate and for the foreseeable future. Reporting to Commercial Manager, you will be responsible for management of all commercial aspects including: sub-contract procurement, management of sub-contractor accounts, undertaking measurement and valuations for payments, pricing and agreeing variations, applications to client for interim payments, input to financial forecasting and CVRs, settlement of subcontractor final accounts, through to the agreement of client final account. This is a superb opportunity to work with this smaller main contractor and run your own project, potentially for the first time if you come from a larger Tier 1 main contractor typically undertaking larger schemes where progression to the No1 spot can take longer to achieve. About the Company/Client/Project: This role is to work with the busy Hampshire based office of this specialist main contractor, with an annual turnover for the region of circa £20-25m. Workload is typically hotel and hospitality projects, plus some high-end residential schemes on the South Coast. Work is a mixture of traditional and D&B contracts, often negotiated with repeat clients. Workload is typically in the region of £7m to £25m in value. Requirements including certificates and qualifications: You will be degree qualified, have around 5-6 years of experience post-graduation, and have a proven track record of successful project delivery in a similar role ideally with a Tier 1 main contractor. Drive, ambition, attention to detail, and excellent commercial and contractual knowledge will be well rewarded with competitive salary and package, plus a clear pathway for progression and development.
