Project Quantity Surveyor required for unique development business

Your new company
Our client is a developer who is deeply embedded in the high-end residential development market in Edinburgh. With a long history of building award-winning developments, they are now seeking to appoint a Project Quantity Surveyor to their commercial team.

Your new role
As Project Quantity Surveyor, you will be reporting to a highly experienced and well respected commercial director who will mentor and guide you on your journey towards Senior Quantity Surveyor and beyond. Your initial project will be a large residential new build development in the middle of Edinburgh. Working with your supply chain, you will manage them commercially, ensuring that the project targets and budgets are met. From managing the payment process to accessing claims and variations, you will play a key role in the commercial success of the project.

What you’ll need to succeed
The ideal candidate is a degree-qualified Quantity Surveyor with experience in the delivery of residential or refurbishment projects for reputable builders.

You will be a savvy commercial operator who enjoys the challenge and stimulation of making money in a very competitive and volatile commercial environment.
