This exciting opportunity will suit a motivated and forward-thinking individual who perhaps is at the start of their career, having obtained a relevant BTEC HNC or Degree level qualification, or someone who can demonstrate some all-round experience and knowledge of the construction sector.    

Whatever your level of knowledge and experience, you will work within a team of experienced development surveyors, carrying out a range of QS duties with the aim of progressing to eventually running your own sites.
