How you’ll 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’ll support the commercial and contractual management and relationships of a portfolio of telecoms projects including new builds, city enhancement projects and field service frameworks. Day to day, this is what you can expect to be doing:
- Valuing contractor’s work and certifying interim and final payments
- Assessing and authorising submission of project variations
- Assessing, reviewing and mitigating commercial and contractual risks through implementing our policies for risk management
- Providing commercial and contractual expertise to city build teams, including producing valuation certification, issuing correspondence, claims, budget monitoring and producing contract/workstream performance data
- Building and maintaining contractual relationships with build partners
What you’ll bring to the role
Quantity Surveyors are key players when it comes to commercial and contractual decisions, so you’ll need solid experience in commercial management and procuring contractors, working knowledge of NEC3 ECC forms, plus:
- The ability to negotiate with suppliers and partners
- Experience overseeing large capital expenditure projects
- Experience with using spreadsheets to interpret and collate financial data
- Presentation and report writing skills
- HNC/HND level education, or equivalent
- Ideally, a background in telecoms, civil engineering or utilities
We’re looking for people who don’t settle for ‘good enough’ and push things forward. If you’ve just found yourself thinking, ‘I’d love to do this’, we want to hear from you. Let’s change it up.
