Job Description

Senior Quantity Surveyor (Residential)
North London
£45-60k + 5k Car allowance, benefits, excellent career / development

The Opportunity

This is an outstanding opportunity for an established Senior QS to come into a North London based construction company specialising in high end commercial and residential flats / apartment projects. Ideally with experience from a main contractor background in residential builds, this opportunity allows to step into a wider hands on role, joining an experienced senior 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 room for progression as the company is already established and growing year on year, which committed to the growth and development of its employees.

The role

You will be working on projects across the North London and City of London region, focusing on 1 project at a time, of high value, anywhere between £1m-£15m. 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 £10m residential project for a block of apartments, therefore it is essential that you have main contractors experience from a Senior QS position in residential projects.

Typical projects you can expect to work on are construction and property development of for example, apartment blocks, commercial offices and commercial to residential covnersions. This role is 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 Senior Quantity Surveyor (Residential) role you will have had exposure of working on high value projects (at least £2m). You will have overseen different stages of each project and ideally any experience of JCT contracts would be beneficial although extensive experience of using other contracts, e.g NEC would be fine.
You will ideally be either HND/HNC/degree qualified and holding the RICS/ICES accreditation, although again this isn't essential, if you have the skills and experience we would still be interested in hearing from you. 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 Director 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 Senior Quantity Surveyor (Residential) will work for an already established and growing company with their head office in North London.
With a multi-million pound annual turnover the company has been responsible for the delivery of multiple high value projects both inside and around the city centre, with a busy and exciting forecast of projects for the next few years.

The Senior QS role is to be based in North London with approximately 50:50 time split between office and site. The role comes with a salary of £45-60k + 5k Car allowance, benefits, excellent career / development. This is a starting package bear in mind.
