Job Description

The Freelance Senior Quantity Surveyor role:

My client is a growing main contractor on student accommodation schemes in Liverpool, Cheshire and Stoke, with an ever-increasing profile. Working on projects with media attention, this is a business that is quickly becoming a regional heavyweight in main contracting. Well-financed, with the backing of a major consultancy, the business is led by engaging directors and reputable construction and commercial professionals - so everything is in place for their recent growth and success to continue as planned.

This lucrative, long term freelance position is one of two we are collaboratively seeking. Based in Liverpool on a £12m-£15m student accommodation project in the city centre, you'll work with a team of project and assistant quantity surveyors, driving project value on this exciting city centre project from the moment it comes out of the ground.

With maximising value being of huge importance, this freelance Senior Quantity Surveyor role comes with real involvement and responsibility for your project, as well as the opportunity to contribute significantly to company growth, and the potential for a permanent role at the end of the contracts (if this is of interest).

Your duties and responsibilities as Freelance Senior Quantity Surveyor:

* Build and maintain a strong working relationship with the client (the associated developer) and ensure reports (including board reports, CVRs and schedules) to the client and the Directors are accurate, timely and forewarn of any potential issues
* Procure and manage subcontractor accounts and performance, including managing subcontractors against programmes/schedules
* Forecast predicted spends, forecast project cash flows and prepare, negotiate and settle final accounts
* Ensure submission of payment applications and ensure that subcontractor payments are dealt with fairly and in accordance with subcontract terms
* Procure and manage subcontractor packages, and ensure they are dealt with fairly and in accordance with all contract paperwork
* Ensure payment applications are dealt with in a timely manner
* Supervise, mentor and encourage Assistant/Intermediate Quantity Surveyors in their personal professional development where appropriate, including ensuring their resource is allocated appropriately

Your skills and experience required:

Qualified to HNC or degree level (for example, BSc in Quantity Surveying or equivalent), you'll be able to demonstrate commercial astuteness and an ability for maximising value on projects, helping to highlight to the business any potential money-making opportunities.

You will be comfortable demonstrating experience as a Senior Quantity Surveyor (number one) in a new build, ideally with experience on projects greater than £5m in value. You'll relish the chance to remain hands on, working collaboratively with site teams rather than basing yourself purely in the office. You will have experience in procuring and managing subcontractor packages, and be passionate about effectively contributing to enhancing profitability across the business' operations.

Salary, Remuneration & other benefits on offer:

Our client is willing to offer an exceptional day rate (flexible depending on the successful candidate).
This role is perfect for a main contracting Freelance Quantity Surveyor that is seeking a number one role. The projects involved will also look exceptional on your CV.
