Intermediate Quantity Surveyor (Commercial Construction) Auckland, New Zealand

Such is the growth of the commercial construction market in New Zealand my client is looking to increase the size of their team in Auckland. As one of New Zealand’s premier contractors they can offer an excellent environment, the best projects and the opportunity to further your career. This is an amazing opportunity to transfer your already successful career straight into one of the busiest construction markets around.

You will have gained at least 5 years post qualification experience and be at the level where you are either site based on one larger project or working on a range of smaller projects. You will need a strong work history working for a main contractor with solid employment tenure, i.e. worked for 2 or 3 employers over the last 5 years. Your experience will primarily be with commercial projects but those with some experience in other sectors should not be put off.

Duties will include budget management, cost review and programming, progressing claims and variations, financial reporting, tendering and systems work. The successful candidate will be comfortable working closely with all stakeholders, including senior management, consultants, clients and the project team.

You will report to a Senior QS based at head office, but depending on your expertise the structure is fairly relaxed. Right from the start you will be trusted to drive projects forward with the commercial team there to provide guidance where necessary.

The successful candidate will secure an excellent salary as part of a broader package and will also get the opportunity to work with a dynamic team on some of Auckland’s most prestigious construction projects. Career progression is not just a buzzword with this contractor and their senior positions are filled with those who have developed their careers from within the organisation. Opportunities abound within the company and throughout New Zealand and if your career is important then this is a position for you.
