About the Role:
I am looking for a Quantity Surveyor / Senior Quantity Surveyor for a Concrete Frame and Groundwork subcontractor who although based in the South East are looking for someone to operate between St Albans and Birmingham.
This role will involve the usual commercial management duties (i.e. taking projects from start to final account making sure budgets are maintained and profit levels are maximised while reporting any necessary changes) on reinforced concrete (RC) frame packages and associated groundwork & foundation packages.
If successful you will report to the company’s commercial director and will be responsible for initially 3 lives packages with further work in the region starting next year. The initial three packages are fairly large with a £20m RC frame & groundwork package in Milton Keynes, a £15m RC frame & groundwork package in Birmingham and a £6m RC frame & groundwork package in St Albans.
Individual package values for future / further work could range from £1 million up to £20 million each.
Candidates must be degree qualified in Quantity Surveying or Commercial Management and must have experience in this role while working for rival RC frame or groundwork subcontractors.
About the Company:
Established over 25 years ago and based out of their head office in Surrey, this £130 million turnover business specialises in Concrete Frames, Groundworks and Basement Construction. With satellite offices in the South West and Midlands they have a strong coverage of projects with package values ranging from £5 million up to £30 million each (currently), covering the residential, commercial, leisure and education sectors. We have been preferred suppliers to this company for over 10 years and maintain a strong relationship with all the directors of the business.
What sets this business apart is their focus on safety and rewarding their staff;
The MD takes an active role in the safety department making sure it is at the forefront of everything they do, not only to please clients but most importantly to make sure every person goes home safely at the end of every day. He is proud to stand by their safety record and the constant measures they take to maintain and improve this department.
In addition to safety, the focus on rewarding their staff is demonstrated in the constant career development that is offered and the targeted bonus structures that are in place for all the management and surveying / commercial teams. For instance, bonuses are several thousand pound and are paid twice a year. These are measured on a quarterly basis based on certain key performance indicators such as safety, programme deadlines and commercial statistics. This gives each individual a real gauge of what they have to do to earn each bonus and it is worth pointing out, most management and commercial team members are hitting above 80% of their bonus. This is a simple example of how targeted, clear reward structures benefit the individual but also the company as a whole.
