If you are a passionate QS looking for a break from the old routine (of tenders, project QS duties in the ‘traditional’ way of building, constantly battling with variations, subbies and consultants) and want to become an integral part of an organisation with a strong future, disrupting the old ways and making positive change to construction, this is the role for you.
