Pre-construction QS



The Company:

We are working with a market leading building contractor whose head office is based in the North West.
From here they work nationally and secure work through a number of procurement frameworks on which they have a great degree of success.

A good proportion of their workload comes from negotiation.

They work to double digit margins, are cash rich and have secured the vast majority of their turnover target for 2024 and 2025 already.

They typically make double digit margins on projects and more importantly are aware of their social responsibilities so encourage their staff to take part in volunteering days (both in the UK and abroad), provide gym membership and other wellbeing initiatives, work with colleges to encourage the next generation in to the industry and provide electric vehicle charging points at their office.


The Role:

They are now in a position to add to their small, Regional Pre-Construction team in line with planned expansion and an extremely healthy pipeline of opportunities for 2024 and beyond.
This position provides an excellent opportunity for someone to continue their career within a highly successful preconstruction team.

They would like to recruit a Preconstruction QS who would work closely with the Preconstruction Manager/Director, Estimators and Design Managers helping to secure projects valued up to £50 Million.

You may be a QS looking for a change of role and hoping to reduce your travel (they envisage the role to be based from their office or are open to home working if desired).

You will be based in or be able to commute to Cheshire daily.
You will be IT literate.



The successful person will receive structured training and development and a good salary and benefits package.
