Location: London (But travel across the UK required)
Salary: £50,000 - £70,000
Reporting into the Group General Manager, the position holder will work closely with Contracts Manager on all Pre/Post contract negotiations with the Client and remain active through the contract, supporting the delivery phase to ensuring that all Projects retain a high level of profitability throughout execution.
• Full control and commercial management of all contract variations.
• Pre-Contract negotiations.

• Identification and issuing of further chargeable works through contract variations

A background in a Commercial Quantity Surveying or Senior Quantity Surveying within the Construction Sector is prerequisite.
You will need to demonstrate good organisational and time management skills and be able to quickly prioritise your workload. The ability to look ahead and ensure problems are identified before they occur, or if they escalate, resolve them in the right way with the Customer to ensure relationship is retained. Experience of previous contractual gains and strong rebuffing of client charges through alterations and variations of works and timelines, whilst not damaging the relationships, must be demonstrated in order to protect the company's interests, future works and current project profitability at all times.
You will work very closely with the Site Manager and Contracts Manager in making decisions and will require strong commercial and people skills as well as astute contractual awareness.
The ability to get on well with others and be able to calmly and effectively analyse problems as they arise and then quickly reach the right decisions as part of a team is vital, as is the need for a good sense of humour and a highly professional approach. The willingness to learn and the will and desire to reach the highest standards, together with a positive attitude are essential. Any previous specialist or generalist Roofing project experience could be beneficial but is by no means essential.
