The Company:

We are working with a leading contractor whose North West Regional Office has created an excellent reputation for delivering interesting projects for leading blue chip clients.

They have excellent relationships with their clients that means they enjoy a good proportion of repeat, negotiated business.

Their senior management team are dynamic, knowledgeable and very approachable.

They are a real success story who have grown significantly over the last few years despite COVID's influence and have already secured their £100 Million turnover target for this financial year and have a great pipeline for 2023-24 already.

They have modern offices, typically make double digit margins on projects and have a really good, loyal supply chain.

The company advocates a healthy work life balance so their staff work from home, flexibly so can start/finish early or late, they offer subsidised Gym membership and they carry out voluntary work in the UK and overseas.

The Role:

They are now in a position to add a Pre-Construction Quantity Surveyor to their regional team due to the growth of their business and an increasing number of new projects in their pipeline.

The role is to work on interesting £Multi Million projects, current projects are valued from £3 Million – £50 Million.

The role is largely office based with occasional site visits and home working if required.

Typical duties can include;
