Job Description

Our client has been providing construction services for 15 years, specialising in small to medium sized projects, and mainly in the commercial, retail and industrial sectors. Projects range in size from £20,000 to around £8 million.

The Company continues to grow and build on its experience and reputation of delivering high quality, cost effective construction solutions. This growth is largely organic, with repeat business and new 'word of mouth' contracts creating a strong foundation for the future.

This philosophy also creates a rewarding, relationship based working environment for both staff and clients. Due to an increase in workload they have a requirement for a Quantity Surveyor with experience within the fast track fit-out sectors.
