They currently have 5 secured projects due to start in the coming months within Greater Manchester, Cheshire and Merseyside.
Their senior management team have been with the business for a good spell and very approachable.

The Role:
They are now in a position to add to their Commercial team and would ideally like to recruit a Project Quantity Surveyor and a Senior QS too to help them deliver the newly awarded projects : they are expecting more projects to follow in the New Year as they are chatting to a number of developers who they have worked with previously and also have a couple of their own developments due on site in 2019.
Both roles will report to a Regional Commercial Director and will work closely with the operations and technical teams to reach a successful commercial outcomes on your designated projects.
The role will be split between the head office and site.

They would like to recruit an experienced Quantity Surveyor and a Senior QS both with good track records of working on similar projects for Regional Contractors either as lead or as a part of a commercial team. They feel that those with experience working for small to medium sized regional businesses have generally slotted in to their team easier than those who have only ever worked for Top Tier contractors on major projects.
They'd also be keen to chat with experienced Assistant/Intermediate QSs who are ready to progress their careers and have the time and inclination to support someone to do this.
You will be based in or be able to commute to the office in Manchester and be able to commute to sites as required.
You'll be IT literate and contractually aware.

The successful person will benefit from a good salary and benefits package that rewards endeavour.

You will be working with a contractor who have had a great deal of success in their chosen sectors, who have experienced significant growth over the last few years, with a low staff turnover who can provide a challenging and supportive working environment.
