Job Description

Within the PMO Delivery Integration Team on the HPC Project, an opportunity has arisen to establish a small team of HPC Site based Quantity Surveyors who will work within the Critical Path Function to  monitor, assess and, where required, support corrective actions to minimise impact on the Project critical path.  The Quantity Surveyor will report to the Critical Path Lead, providing intelligence, support and advice.

Although the traditional role of the Quantity Surveyor is predominantly to support the commercial requirements of a contract and to a large extent this is reflected in this role, the ability to understand schedule performance in a fast moving large and complex construction programme is paramount, with the candidate able to demonstrate a good understanding of the construction process.

Working in a well-established technical led environment, the ability to communicate well and provide concise written reports is essential, as is the ability to understand and influence technical discussions across multi disciplines.


The role will require the incumbent to:

  • Work closely with Contract and Client Planning engineers.
  • Monitor performance against contract programmes and report issues within the Critical Path team for onward dissemination / escalation as required.
  • Build and maintain close working relationships with other disciplines within the organisation, particularly the Area Delivery and Construction Teams.
  • Take ownership to ensure queries and issues are dealt with promptly and appropriately.
  • Support and coordinate Critical Path resources to meet agreed targets.
  • Gain information from multiple sources, across the project using project tools e.g. P6 outputs, Excel databases/spreadsheets, Power BI, SharePoint, CEMAR, written and verbal conversations etc.
  • Will require significant time in the field, possibly in the supply chain.
  • Prepare and support monthly review evaluation reports/schedules and flow forecasts for submission to the Delivery Integration team
  • Attend and influence meetings.
  • Have a good working understanding of contract and commercial law and apply this knowledge practically.
