Manpower Technical is recruiting for a Project Quantity Surveyor on behalf of our client located in Coventry. The role is an open ended Contract, and based within the Energy Sector.
Key Accountabilities of this role include:
We're currently looking for a talented professional with a strong financial and commercial background to carry out quantity surveying duties on a range of projects across the UK. Primarily site based - often three days a week - you'll be responsible for the commercial control of the projects. That will involve the valuation of subcontract applications and invoices, raising internal invoices, carrying out cost analysis and monitoring project performance from contractual and commercial perspectives.

Reporting to the Managing Quantity Surveyor, you'll also be responsible for the preparation of pricing schedules and a wide range of contract types, including T&M, NEC, JCT and bespoke service agreements. It will also be down to you to provide contractual, commercial and financial support for the Delivery team.

You'll also need excellent communication and negotiation skills. That's because another of your key responsibilities will be managing our relationships with contractors and suppliers, leading negotiations with them as well as ensuring they are all fully approved and adhering to the highest quality standards. And you will always be striving to improve commercial competitiveness as well, fostering relationships with new suppliers and contractors wherever you can. You will be supported in all this by an Assistant Quantity Surveyor, so you'll be expected to help with their development too.

It's a wide-ranging role with a lot of responsibility, and the rewards will be great. This is a huge opportunity, not just to develop your skills and reputation with a world-class energy supplier, but also to get the experience and understanding to progress to an even more high profile, senior role.

*A degree in Quantity Surveying.
