Job Description

Managing Quantity Surveyor / Commercial Manager
Liverpool
£45-55k + 6k Car allowance, benefits, excellent career / development

The Opportunity

This is an outstanding opportunity for an established Managing Quantity Surveyor / Commercial Manager to come into a leading North West Construction + Property Development company. Ideally with experience from a main contractor background, this opportunity allows to step into a wider hands on role, joining a highly experienced senior team (where all members of the board have previously been Directors in PLC's / Main Contractors), and be an integral part of projects from cradle to grave. This offers opportunity to come in at a senior level, but where there is still massive room for progression, with, for the right person, a future opportunity for Directorship.

The role

You will be working across the North West, focusing on 1 project at a time, of high value, typically 1-2 years and anywhere between £5m-£20m. What sets this role apart from others is you will be a key player involved in all aspects of projects, taking clients through every step of their project, from inception and planning, through procurement and construction, liaising directly with the board throughout the process. Coming into the role your first challenge will be the responsibility for a £14m project in the early months of 2014, therefore it is essential that you have experience from a Senior QS position of delivering high value projects along with management of commercial teams.

Typical projects you can expect to work on are construction and property development of for example, student accommodation, commercial offices and university buildings, however we would be keen to hear from candidates who may have come from a variety of backgrounds including civils, highways and infrastructure and/or major construction projects as the projects will be more about your Senior Management QS skills (such as delivering different stages of projects) as opposed to your out and out specific background.

The Candidate

For the Managing Quantity Surveyor / Commercial Manager role you will have had exposure of working on high value projects (at least £4m). You will have managed a number of QS's and overseen different stages of each project. Experience of JCT contracts would be beneficial although extensive experience of using other contracts, e.g NEC would be fine.
You will be either HND/HNC/degree qualified as a minimum in a relevant discipline and will hold the RICS/ICES accreditation. You will have strong commercial skills and a proven experience of working on high value projects.

You will be liaising directly with both external stakeholders as well as the internal board of Directors so good communication and team player skills are essential as is the ability to work on your own initiative as this is a senior role and offers a high level of responsibility from day 1.

The Company

The Managing Quantity Surveyor / Commercial Manager will work for a leading North West Construction + Property Development company, with their office based in Liverpool. With a multi-million pound annual turnover the company has been responsible for the delivery of in excess of 1 million sq.ft of mixed use development since the establishment of the development and contracting business with typical projects varying in the region of £5 -20 million. All members of the board have previously been Directors in PLC's / Main Contractors and for the right candidate, they would also have the future opportunity for Directorship.

The Managing Quantity Surveyor / Commercial Manager role is to be based in Liverpool with approximately 50:50 time split between office and site. The role comes with a salary of £45-55k + 6k Car allowance, benefits, excellent career / development. This is a starting package bear in mind.
