We’re changing it up

We’re on a mission to build the UK’s finest digital infrastructure and unleash Britain’s potential. Together, we’re achieving incredible things. We may have big ambitions, but we never lose sight of what matters. That’s why we’ve created an open, inclusive environment where people can be themselves, where wellbeing and mental health come first, where we take a flexible approach to working, and where everyone has the chance to pursue their passions, keep learning and grow their careers. We’re changing up Britain and we’re changing up the workplace with better rewards, more opportunities to grow and the chance to make a difference to communities across the UK.

A rewarding career

We’re passionate about our work and we’re passionate about our people too. With a competitive salary + car allowance, when you join the CityFibre family you’ll also enjoy benefits like 25 days’ holiday, a car allowance, a day off on your birthday, a day off to support a charity or organisation of your choice, performance-related bonus scheme, and private healthcare.

How can you change it up?

Our Quantity Surveyors play a vital role in delivering digital infrastructure across the UK by building strong, collaborative relationships with our build partners and teams, ensuring a smooth process and maximum quality across every build. Working as part of our Supply Chain division, you will provide support to the wider team on the commercial and contractual management of a portfolio of telecoms projects. Some of your day-to-day responsibilities will include:

  • Completing NEC3 Contract Administration Via CEMAR
  • Assisting with value work executed by contractors and certifying interim and final payments
  • Helping to support the authorisation and submission of project variations
  • Working alongside the team to assess, review and mitigate commercial and contractual risks
  • Assisting in the monthly measurement of supplier KPIs and reporting
  • Supporting the team to provide robust, timely and accurate cost and value data at both project and regional levels, including their relation to the programme schedule

What will you bring to the role?

Assistant Quantity Surveyors are key players when it comes to commercial and contractual decisions, so you’ll need some experience in commercial management and the procurement of contractors, with a working knowledge of NEC3 ECC forms. You’ll also have:

  • The ability to negotiate with suppliers and partners
  • Experience with using spreadsheets to interpret and collate financial data
  • Presentation and report writing skills
  • HNC/HND level education, or equivalent
  • Ideally, you will also have experience with NRSWA and SRWR street works
