Senior QS – Sweden

May 25, 2017 | Construction Jobs  |  Comments Off on Senior QS – Sweden

We currently have a rare opportunity for an Intermediate or Senior Quantity Surveyor to relocate to Stockholm in Sweden with a well-recognised PQS firm.

Our client has enjoyed significant success in the Scandinavian region of late and has built up a strong office consisting of both expat and local QS and PM employees. Typically offering QS and PM solutions to clients across the region (including Denmark, Norway and Sweden), their project portfolio is varied and includes hospitals, commercial offices, hotels, residential, schools and more process-led industries such as manufacturing, pharma, etc. The role of a "Quantity Surveyor" is still not truly recognised in the Scandinavian region and tends to be the function of a Project Manager; our client is slowly changing perceptions and the cost management division is experiencing great success. The successful individual will be predominantly involved in pre-contract duties and must have strong estimating and cost reporting skills. Swedish language skills would be a huge advantage but are not essential for this role!

Ideally the successful candidate will have the following:
- Significant experience as a Quantity Surveyor in the UK construction sector.
- MRICS qualified.
- Relevant construction or engineering degree.
- Strong estimating and cost reporting skills.
- Swedish language-skills/national would be an advantage but not essential.
- Confident, personable individual who is comfortable in a consultancy environment.
- Eligible (and a genuine desire!) to work in Scandinavia (i.e. EU national).

Our client will offer a basic salary with full benefits package (Intermediate £40-50k, Senior £50-60k) plus some help with accomodation upon arrival in Stockholm. This is a full-time position based in the growing Stockholm office; please contact Richard Evans on 01189 881105 for further details or apply now for immediate consideration.

May 25, 2017 | Construction Jobs  |  Comments Off on Construction Planner – Major Mixed Use Scheme – East London

A progressive main contractor has a requirement for a Construction Planner to work on a £100m+ regeneration scheme in Central/East London. The project is a mixed use development dominated by residential but with commercial and retail elements included and our client is seeking an Intermediate Planner with a background in construction who is perhaps looking to take the next step up albeit with a support network around him/her. A vastly experienced Senior Planner is already in place on this project and thus the role will involve working directly alongside him to ensure that the scheme progresses in accordance with the detailed and somewhat complicated plan. The planning team is based in Central London but you'll be predominantly out on site for the initial 12 months, while this project takes shape. "On the job" training will be provided as well as a personal development plan from your overall Director; you can expect to learn a lot in this role!

The successful candidate will have the following:
- Previous experience in a construction planning role with an understanding of UK construction techniques.
- Project experience is irrelevant in terms of size provided that the fundamentals of planning have been fully taken on board.
- Proficient with Asta Powerproject and/or Primavera software.
- A genuine desire to continue to learn, develop and progress career - there will be plenty of training available.
- Eligible to work in the UK.

Our client is offering a basic salary of between £45,000 and £52,000 per annum plus a comprehensive benefits package for this role, dependent upon level of experience, training, etc.

For further details, or for a discussion regarding other available Planning roles, please contact Richard Evans on 01189 881105

Planning Engineer - "Front End" Construction - Central London

A mid-sized construction management firm currently has a requirement for a Planning Engineer to work on various high profile and somewhat complicated developments in London. Their current project portfolio is impressive and includes several five star hotels, listed building refurbishment, £100m+ commercial and mixed use developments, etc, all within Central London.

This is a great opportunity to work closely with several extremely experienced Senior Planners, who have worked on some of the UK's most impressive construction developments and to gain involvement on an extremely interesting and varied portfolio of schemes across London.

Ideally the successful candidate will have the following experience:
-Construction-related background with good understanding of "front end" of projects, i.e. planning stages, procurement, get contractor, etc.
-Previous exposure to planning, particularly using Asta Powerproject software.
-Relevant construction/engineering degree.
-Personable individual with strong stakeholder management skills.
-Eligible to work in the UK.

In return, our client is offering a basic salary of circa £50,000 per annum, travel/allowance, competitive pension etc. and a genuine opportunity to get involved in impressive projects. Contact Richard Evans on 01189 881105 to discuss further or apply now for immediate consideration.
