Job Description

Senior / Project Quantity Surveyor

£300 - £400 per day DOE


We are looking for an experienced Senior Quantity Surveyor to start ASAP for an established Main Contractor who are incredibly busy with live and upcoming projects.

The Senior Quantity Surveyor will be based on a new build care home in Canterbury. It is a Design & Build scheme with a 60 week+ programme so we would expect to be employing someone for circa +70 weeks going forward once you take into account final accounting etc.

Furthermore, there is a large amount of work coming up on the South coast.

Requirements for the Senior Quantity Surveyor:

  • It is essential that the Senior Quantity Surveyor has previous design and build experience
  • Main contracting background is essential.
  • The ability to re-measure packages / Value Engineering
  • The Senior Quantity Surveyor will need to have experience with all building packages from groundworks to finishing trades such as painting
  • They must be IT literate and have experience of using IT packages for reporting and completing payments
  • They must be able to work responsibly on their own and report on a weekly/fortnightly & monthly
  • The Senior QS will have to travel to Head Office up north for initial training. This would probably last for 3-5 days. From experience this is so much better than trying to achieve training in IT systems on site.

In summary we are looking for an experienced person who can investigate and interrogate sub contract packages and drive value out of them.

What's on offer for the Senior Quantity Surveyor:

  • £300 - £400 per day DOE
  • 12 month contract
  • Secure notice period
  • Guaranteed future projects thereafter
  • There is scope to go perm is desired
