Job Description

Job Title: Quantity Surveyor (New Build Housing)

Location: Manchester

The UK's largest assisted living new build housing provider are currently in the market for an experienced Quantity Surveyor.

My client is a 5* national builder who have been established for over 40 years and currently have a turnover in excess of £450 million. Many years of experience has made them specialists and a leading force within their market place. They have fantastic customer satisfaction ratings and have an excellent reputation within the marketplace having been awarded five stars for over ten consecutive years.

The vacancy for a quantity surveyor has emerged due to their increased work load in recent months. Having recently won new projects within the North-West my client is extremely busy and hence has the requirement for another quantity surveyor to join their ambitious team.

At present the commercial department consists of seven members; commercial director, chief QS, two senior QS's, 1 assistant QS and 2 admin assistants. My client is looking to employ a QS with circa five years' experience within the new build housing industry. In addition, over the next year or so the commercial director has plans to grow the team and will be hoping to promote from within therefore there will be ample opportunity for career progression within this company.

My client is managing the construction of 350 units this year with plans to increase this year on year reaching 500 units within the next 3-4 years. You will therefore be expected to manage 3 developments each of which consists of between 30-60 units.

You will be joining a very family orientated company; a company which looks after their staff and as a consequence has a low staff turnover with many of the staff having stayed loyal to the company for more than 20 years. Having recently met with the commercial director it is clear to see his intentions to promote from within and look after the staff within the commercial department.

My client is willing to offer a salary and package above the current market rate to secure the right calibre candidate (up to £45,000 + competitive package for an intermediate QS).

Other benefits Inc. discretionary yearly bonus (company driven), car (BMW or Audi) or car allowance (4k-4.5k), pension (contributory), healthcare and 25 days holiday plus bank holidays (holiday incentive scheme; for every year of service to the company holiday allocations increase up to a maximum of 30 days)
