£70,000 - £100,000 yearly
Senior Quantity Surveyor
Concrete Frame & Groundwork Subcontractor
North London office with projects in and around the M25
£70,000 - £100,000 + Benefits
About the Opportunity:
We have been asked to look for a Senior Quantity Surveyor for one of our Concrete Frame and Groundwork subcontractors based in North London.
This 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 and variations to the board) on reinforced concrete (RC) frame and associated groundwork packages.
This opportunity will report to the company’s commercial director and you will be responsible for 3-5 live packages at any one time. Package values usually range from £1m up to £15m each and all are in and around London.
About the Employer:
Based in North London this business is going from strength to strength. As mentioned above they currently turnover around £50 million per annum but this is growing at a steady rate each year. They have work in and around London with a good mixture of reputable main contractors and developers and are currently working on packages ranging from £1 million up to around £15 million each. All their work includes reinforced concrete frames, basements or groundworks for commercial or residential schemes and as a whole, I see this business as a modern enterprise with strong client relationships, even stronger ties within the team, and a great future ahead of them.
I’ve known the MD of this business going back to 2008 and he’s one hell of a nice guy. They operate as a team with a close-knit environment where everyone works together towards common goals. Anyone who was to join this business would feel that support and comradery around them and with growth, comes opportunities for the future, so career progression is definitely available for Surveyors looking to step up in time.
About the Requirements:
The requirements for this role are fairly straightforward;
We can only consider individuals who have experience working as a Quantity Surveyor or Senior Quantity Surveyor for either Groundwork or Concrete Frame subcontractors in the UK. Our client only wants to consider individuals from a rival subcontractor background.
Based on the location, this role would suit someone based in or around London who can commute on a daily basis into and around North London.
And due to the technical nature of this role, it is also crucial that all applicants are degree qualified in Quantity Surveying or Commercial Management.
About the Benefits & Rewards:
For the right professional, our client is looking to offer a market-leading package including a strong starting salary or rate with added benefits.
If PAYE paid you can expect a starting salary ranging from £70,000 to £100,000 depending on your experience, plus a car allowance, full benefits and a targeted results-related bonus.
If self-employed, day rates range from around £325 to £450 per day can be considered (depending on experience) and you will be covered for travel costs and you will also be given project related bonuses.
About Me, Your Consultant:
My name is Andrew Jackson and I am one of the founding directors of Cityscape Recruitment Ltd. I have over 15 years of experience in civil engineering & construction recruitment, during which time, I have specialised in the niche sectors of concrete frames, groundworks, basement construction and demolition.
So, what does that mean for you? It means, I work with the vast majority of the groundwork & concrete frame businesses in the UK and I can help not only introduce you, but I can give you up to date information on each of them (the good parts and the less positive parts), helping you make an informed decision so you can take your career forward. I’ve been doing this for a fair while now and I’ve maintained a positive reputation doing what I do because I don’t tell people false truths, I tell them everything I know and then let them choose. My job is to get you the options, give you the information and then let you decide what feels right for you.
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.
