Senior 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.
