Job Description

Job Title:Quantity Surveyor
Exciting opportunity to join a rapidly developing organisation based at Heathrow in a hands-on QS role.
Location:Heathrow
Salary:£60k - £65k (dependent upon experience)

The Role
Bluefire Consulting are recruiting for a Quantity Surveyor to develop a 360 role within a growing organisation whose clients include the MoD, London Underground and Heathrow Airport. In this standalone role main duties will include:
*working alongside client's QS to agree applications
*preparing cost plans and reporting costs to the client
*providing procurement and strategy advice
*providing contractual advice (including NEC contracts)
*managing post contract change
*managing value and risk
*project benchmarking
*technical and operational appraisals

The Candidate
As a successful Quantity Surveyor applicant you must be able to demonstrate QS experience working on similar industrial and commercial projects. You must have an excellent knowledge of all types of NEC contracts, Option C contracts, CEMAR and an M&E background and any experience working on a QS project within an airport would be seen as highly advantageous. A working knowledge of the Amtech system would be beneficial and you need to be able to read information from drawings and scopes of works.
As this is a standalone position excellent communication and organisational skills are key as you will be dealing with multiple sites and clients at the same time.

The Opportunity
The client aims to provide the complete package for their projects and an in-house Quantity Surveyor is the next stage in completing this. The role would suit someone who is happy to get stuck in at all levels; from understanding how typical projects are formed to estimating and dealing with NEC contracts and communicating with clients at every stage. The company's strength is its depth of electrical knowledge so if you have an M&E background with a mechanical understanding to complement their existing forte this would be ideal.
In return you will get a foot in the door of an ambitious company on the up who already has the contracts to continue their expansion.

We need to fill this role ASAP so if it sounds like you click "apply" now.

Bluefire Consulting Ltd is a recruitment agency working on behalf of our client.
