Such is the growth of the commercial construction market in New Zealand my client is looking to increase the size of their team in Wellington. 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 8 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 in your career. This client has a number of major construction projects upcoming in the health, government, apartment and commercial office sectors so experience in any of these would be advantageous.

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 Commercial Manager 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 your commercial team of junior and intermediate quantity surveyors. As a Senior QS you will already have good man management skills and be able to develop the skills and experience of the team around you.

The successful applicant will secure an excellent salary as part of a more extensive package. If you are keen to secure an interview with our client then send your latest CV to Phil via or contact me on +6421 489 367. We are familiar with international time zone differences and a significant component of our recruitment is from overseas, therefore we speak with overseas candidates most NZ mornings/UK evenings.
