The role is being offered on a hybrid working basis with an expectation to attend the office a minimum of 2 days per week. However, the role is to initially support a key public sector client-based Surrey, so regular site visits to this location should be anticipated.

This will include managing pre- and post-contract stages on a range of projects, typically including fire remediation and façade refurbishments within social housing, industrial fit-outs, and work programmes within the education sector.

Key responsibilities will include -

  • Provide a range of pre- and post-contract construction cost management services
  • Prepare feasibility reports, cost plans and estimates
  • Prepare and analyse tender documents and manage contractor appointments
  • Undertake interim valuations, manage payments and settle final accounts
  • Undertake the role of Contract Administrator / Employer's Agent
  • Provide technical advice on contractual issues and legal matters.

What you'll need to succeed

  • MRICS / MCIOB qualified
  • Significant experience in undertaking a range of pre- and post-contract construction cost management / quantity surveying services
  • A proven track record of working within a construction consultancy / quantity surveying practice
  • Proficient at preparing cost plans, managing budgets and administering building contracts
  • Proficient knowledge of building contracts such as JCT / NEC
