About this Role

Quantity Surveyor – 3 – 6 months Contract (Bristol)

Attention construction professionals! Your future could be shaped by how well you align your career with the right set of skills and qualifications. For those cultivating a career in Quantity Surveying, here’s what sets the benchmark for brilliance:

Firstly, ensuring your foundation is firm with an HND or equivalent in Quantity Surveying is vital. Coupled with this, membership in a recognised professional body isn’t just recommended; it is imperative! 🎓

For those aiming for managerial heights, passing the CSCS Managers and Professionals Test is a rung on the ladder you can’t skip. And while holding an SMSTS qualification is desirable, it’s the extensive experience managing costs and site work projects, particularly within the £1 – £5M bracket, that will truly elevate your profile. 💼

Moving up the ranks means grappling with hefty contracts; expect to be immersed in the complexities of Contract Management for NEC 3 and FIDIC contracts exceeding £5M—where your monthly application for payment proficiency aligns strictly with NEC3 principles.

But that’s not all. Ability to work in a team, coupled with sterling stakeholder management and influencing skills, is your daily bread in this cutthroat environment.

As for the desirable traits? A robust grip on Risk Management principles, inside-out knowledge of Health & Safety regulations, specifically the CDM Regulations 2015, and mastery over Finance and cost controls lay the groundwork for consultative prowess. ✅

In the tech age, proficiency in Microsoft software and a history with fabrication may set you apart. Working in highly regulated industries and experience in multinational teams are the cherries on top for what employers covet in senior leadership roles.

And let’s not downplay the soft skills that magnetise success: confidence, determination, and charisma. Pair these with a dash of innovation, a positive outlook, and the resilience of a seasoned pro, and you’re not just a Quantity Surveyor; you’re a force to be reckoned with. 💥
