Job Description

The business

One of our strongest clients, this £multi-million turnover regional construction and social housing contractor, based in Liverpool, demonstrates an exceptional reputation in the construction, residential and social housing sectors across the Merseyside and North Wales regions.

The success of this business in recent years has emerged from the mutually respectful partnerships with a variety of housing providers in the region, and with several reputable framework facilitators. This means that they have long term (3 years plus) work on several responsive & cyclical maintenance and both minor and major refurbishment contracts, predominantly focused in Liverpool, the Wirral, South Lancashire and Chester.

The role - duties, responsibilities and experience

An experienced Senior Quantity Surveyor, you will be joining a business that is on an exciting upward curve. Working alongside a talented commercial team and with a supportive board of directors, you'll manage a small handful of contracts (depending on the values) and be comfortable running fast-paced construction jobs. Taking on the below responsibilities, you'll have a busy, challenging and rewarding career move:

* Ensuring that project value is maximised through careful and intricate management of costs, budgets, schedules and subcontractor performance
* Maintain contract reports and ensure internal and external stakeholders are kept up to date with project progress - including the raising of any potential issues
* Build and maintain strong working relationships with operational teams, directors, clients and subcontractors to ensure timely completion of projects to budget
* Procure and manage multiple subcontractor accounts as appropriate to varying construction projects
* Use strong negotiation skills to ensure maximum value on all projects, whilst ensuring subcontractors are managed fairly and in accordance with contract terms
* Forecast predicted spends and variations, and prepare, negotiate and settle final accounts
* Support the development of assistant quantity surveyors where appropriate

Qualified to degree level (for example, BSc in Quantity Surveying or equivalent), you'll be able to demonstrate commercial astuteness, an ability to manage more than one project or package at once (where appropriate), and strong negotiation skills - the ingredients to being a successful Senior Quantity Surveyor. You'll also demonstrate drive and ambition; a passion for what you do and for your career will set you apart from the rest of the market… and open the door to this fantastic opportunity.

For experienced Quantity Surveyors looking for that next career step up to Senior level, this would be a perfect opportunity with a growing, exciting business that will offer you all the exposure you need to develop.

Depending on your current package and experience, the business is looking to pay between £40,000 and £50,000 plus a competitive package (including a car or allowance) to the successful candidate, as they are committed to bringing in the right person for their business.
