Alexander James Recruiting are currently seeking an experienced Quantity Surveyor/Contract Manager to help support Project Managers in contract reviews and additional legal matters related to the installation and maintenance of lifts and elevator projects.

Given the customer focused nature of the role, strong customer service skills are also key. In terms of locality, the role is based in Nottingham with some potential flexibility on home working though the organisation would also consider an individual based in London.

  • 25 days holiday + statutory
  • Strong progression opportunity
  • Healthcare scheme
  • Standard Pension scheme
  • Death in Service
