Assistant Quantity Surveyor

The Company:

We are working with a leading top tier national contractor whose North West region has created a great reputation for delivering varied and interesting projects for clients based in the North West of England.
They are in the process of building some of the North West’s most iconic projects.
Of all the people we have placed in roles with this company over the last 10 years all are still with the business and the vast majority of people we send for interview with them want to work for them.
They are a family business who genuinely look after their workforce and have a very approachable and successful senior management team in the region.
They secure the majority of their projects through negotiation (they are good at what they do and tend to leave their clients pleased with their projects) and do work on selected Frameworks too.

Although they are one of the Top 20 Construction Groups in the UK, they have the feel of a smaller family business where employees are valued and supported.
They are cash-rich, make good margins on their projects, have an excellent supply chain who they pay promptly and treat with respect (we know this from personal experience!), staff turnover in general is low due to all of the above and they have a really capable team in the region.


The Role:


They are now in a position to add to their Commercial team due to a number of recent, new project awards and a healthy pipeline of future work for 2024 and beyond.

They have recently secured a major, iconic, high profile, new build project based in Manchester and they want to recruit an Assistant Quantity Surveyor to work with the commercial team on the project.

You will report in to one of the Senior QSs and will also have a dedicated Commercial Manager on your section of the project who will provide ongoing support.

You will work closely with the operations and technical teams to reach a successful commercial outcome on the project.

The role will be largely site based.

General responsibilities will include the following;


Undertake commercial and contractual requirements on the designated projects in accordance with the company procedures and processes.

Ensuring sound financial performance including profitability, cash flow, and managing risks and opportunities.

Preparation of accurate and detailed monthly cost reports.

Application of Main Contract and Sub-Contract Forms and Standard Method of Measurement.

Preparing and agreeing Monthly Valuations, including valuing variations and forecast final account.

Help with the appointment of Subcontractors in accordance with Company Procedures, including procurement and account management including valuations, payment notices and agreement of final accounts.

To work closely with Contracts Management to ensure site records and correspondence are completed in accordance with the specific Contract requirements and Company Procedures.

Maintain close working relationship with the client and design team to assist in the success of the project.




They would like to recruit an experienced Assistant QS who has previously been responsible for managing subcontract packages on building projects.

You will be based in or be able to commute to their sites in the North West of England (Current schemes are based in Greater Manchester and Cheshire.)

You will be contractually aware with a good understanding of Construction Contracts and ideally hold a Quantity Surveying qualification.




You will receive a good salary and benefits package that includes a bonus and wide ranging benefits.

You will be working with a company who can provide a challenging and supportive working environment who have a really healthy pipeline of work starting on site during 2024.

Excellent opportunities for progression in a highly successful Construction Group.
