Assistant Quantity Surveyor
An Assistant Quantity Surveyor is required by a Global Energy Provider to support the Project Quantity Surveyor providing surveying duties on a range of projects across the UK. The role is based in Coventry but will involve extensive national travel (overnight accommodation and expenses included). This is a fantastic opportunity to get plenty of on-the-job training and the chance to work on a wide variety of projects supported by the PQS. There may even be the opportunity to manage small projects independently.
You will assist the Project Quantity Surveyor with everything from the valuation of subcontract applications and invoices to commercial controls and internal invoicing. You`ll also help to ensure all current suppliers and contractors are fully approved and will help to foster relationships with new ones. You`ll also help to prepare pricing schedules and a range of contracts, including T&M, NEC, JCT and bespoke service agreements. You will also contribute to the contractual, commercial and financial support for the Delivery team.
With a degree in Quantity Surveying or a similar Commercial Construction subject, you have a previous quantity surveying experience in a traditional construction arena. You`ll ideally have previous experience of helping to prepare pricing schedules and contracts and above all will be eager to learn and develop your surveying career. In addition, you will need excellent communication and negotiation skills as well as considerable commercial acumen. You will also need a full UK driving licence with no more than 6 points and be comfortable working on sites nationally.
