A leader who drives performance through setting an example and working honestly.

As a Managing Surveyor you will be responsible for:

  • Developing and maintaining a high performing Surveying team to ensure the contract is being delivered at or above the agreed profit performance including 121’s, appraisals and performance management
  • The accountability to manage the financial and technical aspects of the contract including procurement, invoicing and payment to minimise costs, maximise value and cash flow and meet profit and debtor day targets
  • Ensuring all work issued has labour targets to return agreed profit
  • Managing the contract accounting and ensuring prompt payment, control cost information and preparing Cost Value Reconciliation and valuations to monitor contract performance

What will you bring?

  • Proven experience in a similar estimating, surveying or accounting/commercial based role
  • Demonstrable experience in managing the commercial reporting of contracts internally and externally
  • The passion for business and the development/streamlining of processes, to ultimately meet the budget and keep yourself and your team motivated so you WILL get that 15% performance reward bonus
