Salary: Competitive Package + Annual Bonus + Company Car or Cash Allowance
SSE Enterprise Contracting is part of the SSE Group and is a leading mechanical and electrical contractor in the UK with an annual turnover of around £500 million. Operating in a dynamic environment, we are currently involved in a range of projects throughout the UK running a variety of commercial and term contracts and have an exciting opportunity for an experienced Senior Quantity Surveyor to supervise and lead our commercial teams in the Northern regions based from our Leeds office.
Providing sound contractual advice to senior operational managers, you will review and advise on matters and agreements relating to pre-contract and post-contract, both upstream and downstream. You will provide general advice and assistance on contractual matters, including negotiating and advising on construction contracts, preparing CVRs and settling final accounts to our offices in the Central region.
Your responsibilities will extend to analysing and reporting on contractual and commercial risk associated with main contracts and sub contracts/supplier agreements and providing advice on the prevention and resolution of commercial and legal issues.
Your Skills and Experience:
To be successful in this role, you will be educated to degree level and hold a formal professional qualification such as MRICS. You should have proven experience in a commercial role with a M&E or main contractor, combined with a strong understanding of construction contracts.
You should possess effective communication and negotiation skills and be flexible and pragmatic. You should have the ability to identify and suggest innovation and effective business improvements.
This role will involve some hands-on QS work in the early stages but will quickly progress to a Commercial Management position so would be an ideal move for someone who is currently a capable Senior QS considering their next step in career.
Due to the potential requirement to drive between sites on occasion, a valid UK drivers license would be essential for this role.
