Trainee Assistant Quantity Surveyor

At any given time, you’ll find us working on some circa 350 developments in both towns and rural areas across the UK, and every one poses unique challenges. Some are from scratch; others see us adapting existing buildings, like old factories or disused hospitals.

Once again we have achieved 5 star housebuilder status.  We are the only major national housebuilder to have been awarded the maximum 5 star rating for nine years in a row.  It's also the thirteenth year our Site Managers have won more NHBC "Pride in the Job" Awards than any other housebuilder; a testament to our dedication and commitment to building new homes of the very highest standard, providing the very best customer service.

Our Quantity Surveyors are responsible for overseeing the commercial side of homebuilding. This includes the analysis, preparation and management all costs, from initial build cost assessments though to site completion, as well as the management of subcontractors and materials required to make the build as effective as possible.

Your job will be to help them do just that. We need people who can bring us fresh ideas and imagination on one hand, whilst learning about managing people, budgets and costs on the other.



You'll be assisting the Quantity Surveyor in leading the development of a site from a cost perspective through to completion; liaising with trades and costing materials and goods, whilst meeting a highly challenging schedule on time, within budget, with a focus on quality and customers.

By the time you’ve finished the programme, we hope you’ll be managing your own sites. By completing your Degree, you’ll be equipped with the most up-to-date information about modern methods of construction, sustainable building techniques and their associated costs and benefits as well as the people and management skills you need to grow professionally. So who knows how far you’ll go?
