Quantity Surveyor

Thames Valley (Beaconsfield)

Shanly Homes is a privately-owned, award-winning regional house builder that aims to develop stunning homes in desirable locations across London and the South East.

Since we built our first home in 1969, we've gone from strength to strength, with a team now comprising of 200 hand-picked professionals, who are as committed to developing homes of exquisite quality and design, as we are.

We know our employees are key to our success, which is why we ask every single of our staff to share in our ethos; we don't live for the future, we help shape it.

Based in our Beaconsfield office, as a Quantity Surveyor you will be responsible for managing the costs of multiple residential property developments to enhance the revenue through careful negotiation and value engineering ideas.

Providing key input into budgets and checking drawings to ensure practical and economical proposals, you'll also prepare and submit sub-contract enquiries in adequate time to ensure contracts are placed in line with the building programme. Other deliverables of the role include:

  • Producing detailed trade-specific scope of works and qualification notes
  • Presenting and submitting completed sub-contractor order documentation
  • Responsible for an element of cost reporting
  • Ensuring our sub-contractors have current UTR status and the insurances and other requirements to assess tax liability.

The ideal candidate will possess a real appreciation for all aspects of surveying, from the procurement through to completion of final accounts. You will have previous residential experience, strong numeracy and accuracy levels, and possess the ability to work as a part of a team and to tight deadlines, with the desire to succeed.

If you share our values and have a passion for excellence, we would love to hear from you. In return we offer the opportunity to work in a unique environment combining the friendliness of a privately-owned business with the benefits of a financially-strong company which has stood the test of time. 

At Shanly Homes, we recognise the value of everybody's contribution and we look to attract the best talent by offering a competitive package, free life assurance, annual and long term bonus schemes, additional annual leave with length of service and pension scheme.
