You should be experienced in preparing construction cost estimates, schedules of work, builder’s quantities, Bills of Quantities and tender documentation generally. You will have a good working knowledge of building contracts and be familiar with using bespoke measurement software e.g. Masterbill, although training will be provided.
Ideal post-contract skills

Experience of traditional and design and build contracts is required and you should be fully conversant with providing Employer’s Agent services as well as traditional QS duties.
Candidates should be capable and willing to balance the requirements of running a number of projects with limited supervision and should be focused on delivering the very best service to our clients.
