Job description

This is a new, permanent role for a Managing Quantity Surveyor to work with a large, stable client organisation within the infrastructure sector.

Leading a commercial team with a strong focus on commercial management and project delivery, you will need a proven-track record and a detailed knowledge of commercial and contractual elements.

Based in Reading, the commercial team will be aiming to deliver against strong savings target, as well as delivering value, currently responsible for c. £1.5bn worth of spend per year. Within this business, there will be plenty of opportunity to experience a huge range of projects, with diverse contracts and project values ranging from £100k through to £200m+.

Duties will include:

  • Providing commercial assurance and working alongside subcontractors, ensuring payments are made on time
  • Instigating and monitoring processes to ensure contractual compliance and correct any issues
  • Working with the finance team, support the management and maximisation of budgets and spend

The successful candidate should have c. 10 years' experience in a commercial role, and must be a chartered Quantity Surveyor, with a degree (or equivalent) in Quantity Surveying. With a superb understanding of negotiation and dispute resolution, and infrastructure experience (including water regulation knowledge), you will be able to develop appropriate systems and processes with fantastic leadership skills across multi-discipline teams.

As you will be regularly liaising with senior stakeholders, you must also be a good communicator with customer service skills and a solid grasp of project delivery and the risks associated with this. If your background includes continuous improvement delivering against stretching targets with a broad business knowledge and you have a driven, ambitious attitude whilst working under pressure, this could be the ideal role for your commercial skillset.

In return, there is a generous salary on offer (up to £72,000 DOE) with a competitive bonus, car allowance, generous pension scheme and further benefits on offer.
