Job Details

Qs/Quantity Surveyor Required, Sevenoaks Area, QS £compeitive

Your new company
A successful smaller high-end housebuilder working across the Kent area on private developments seek an experienced senior QS to join the team. With around 8 live sites and several new projects starts imminent the work is typically in th 3 - 10 unit range, almost exclusively for private clients or in-house developments. Schemes are geared towards the higher end of the market and tend to be traditional build detached units in the £1 - 3 mill range. Due to a planned expansion within the business, there is now an additional need for a permanent Quantity surveyor to work closely with the operations director and back office teams. With newly refurbished offices in a central location, a stacked orderbook and stable team, this is an excellent long-term opportunity for any QS looking to work on the more bespoke higher end of the residential sector.

Your new role
As senior Qs, you will be responsible for all commercial decisions across multiple sites. Your duties will include helping price new schemes, authorising payments, measuring/remeasuring works on site, assessing/agreeing variations, mitigating any financial risk, agreeing final accounts and liaising with various stakeholders to ensure the right commercial decisions are being taken for the business. You will work predominantly in the Sevenoaks office, visiting your various sites as and when needed. You will be heavily involved in the shaping of the role and your opinion will be actively sought on best practise and alternative processes. This is a key role within the business and one that is expected to grow into a commercial lead in the medium term.

What you'll need to succeed
You will be a competent Senior QS with a stable background working within the higher end residential sector. You will have previously worked in a similar role with either a main contractor or Developer and be comfortable working independently, managing your own workload and making commerical decisions. You will ideally have some form of surveying qualifications and be looking for a long-term career move.

What you'll get in return
You will be paid a competitive salary/package within an extremely stable and well-respected local business. The role has genuine opportunities to progress and offers a long-term opportunity within an experienced, long-standing professional team.
