The Quantity Surveyor (Repairs) role will focus on reviewing the work carried out by the DLO and subcontractors, ensuring that internal and external clients are being charged appropriately for the work.  The role will gain an understanding of works which are best carried out in house and challenge works which are sub contracted out to drive the most efficient use of resources. 

Responsible for;

  • Pricing works for both internal and external clients
  • Identify risks and work with the team to mitigate
  • Review works carried out for cost efficiency and quality through both desk top exercises and on site post inspections

This is a great opportunity for an ambitious Assistant/Intermediate Quantity Surveyor to step up into a challenging position, looking to develop their experience in a supportive and collaborative environment.
