Your new role
As Project Quantity Surveyor you will be fully commercially responsible for the delivery of projects in the range of 500K to £5million across multiple sectors. Our client is a client focused business who rely on repeat business, so their QS's are expected to develop and maintain positive relationships with their clients, ensuring that they are left with a positive outcome on their projects. You will be involved from pricing a project all the way through to final accounts. You will be supported by an experienced senior leadership team and be part of a small but busy commercial team.
