Quantity Surveyor – Great Blakenham
Persimmon Homes Suffolk has a vacancy for an experienced Quantity Surveyor to join their successful and growing team. This role will be working on projects across the Suffolk area and the office is based in Great Blakenham.
Who are we?
Building around 16,500 beautifully designed new homes a year in more than 350 prime locations nationwide; Persimmon is one of the UK’s leading house-builders, committed to the highest standards of design, construction and service. We believe our quality really differentiates us from the competition. In fact, our reputation is built on quality. We build quickly and efficiently and expect a lot from our office and site teams, however in turn we’ll reward you for your commitment and hard work and recognise your contribution to the business.
As a Quantity Surveyor you will be responsible for overseeing the commercial management of various small and large housing projects. You will report to the Commercial Director and work within a close knit team of surveyors, often mentoring junior members of staff. The Commercial Director will support and develop you in the way Persimmon operate, empowering you to run with projects, but always on hand to discuss areas for improvement. They will give you clear objectives. You will need to be adaptable and strong in your management style with a consistent approach with the site teams and subcontractors.
If this sounds appealing to you we will require:
Confident commercial management and the ability to value engineer subcontractor packages, whilst protecting the interests of the team and regional office. It is essential that you have worked on volume residential projects previously for a house builder. We use COINS to administer our payments so previous experience in this system would be beneficial, otherwise training can be provided. The housing industry certainly has a lot to offer at the moment, it’s still continuing to grow and Persimmon can offer consistency in future projects.
It is desirable that you have a relevant Surveying qualification, either an HND or degree or equivalent.
What’s in it for you?
A competitive salary and benefits package including a pension, life insurance, company car or car allowance, healthcare and a generous bonus. Above all an honest, driven approach which offers the chance to work with some great people!
Persimmon offer flexible working arrangements with the agreement of the Head of Department.
