We're looking for a Trainee or Assistant Quantity Surveyor on behalf of a small Construction Consultancy based to the south of the city in Birmingham. This firm specialises in the production of bills of quantities and cost plans working with Contractors Developers and PQS firms as clients. They have a strong track record in this specialised sector and have developed an excellent reputation.
There is a new opportunity to join this small and friendly team and to benefit from a thorough on-the-job training programme. We are able to consider undergraduate trainee Quantity Surveyors looking for an opportunity to work part time whilst studying their degree, recent graduates in Quantity Surveying or similar, or indeed Assistant level candidates with perhaps a year or two under their belt. Our client has already been very successful with their training and this could well prove to be a great start to your career.
It goes without saying that an interest in measurement / bills of quantities / taking off is definitely needed. Perhaps this was your strongest module at university or an area you particularly enjoyed? Certainly it needs a very process driven approach and an eye for detail as well as good problem solving skills. This is a sought after skill within Quantity Surveying which is often lacking.
