Quantity Surveying

Welcome to our Quantity Surveying division.

Peace Recruitment's Quantity Surveying consultants specialise in finding appropriate quantity surveyor candidates for our clients. They keep their finger on the pulse of market developments and have an excellent track record of filling permanent and contract vacancies with reliable, fully reference-checked candidates. Their expertise and insight means you don't have to waste time giving us in-depth an explanation of your requirements.

Quantity surveying is one of our most buoyant areas for new opportunities. We work with pre-contract consultancies (PQS) and public sector organisations and also place quantity surveyors with main contractors and sub-contractors. These roles are advertised in our Commercial Management Sector pages. If you're a candidate with experience and expertise, we can help you find the right job. The levels of quantity surveyor we typically recruit are:

  • Quantity Surveyor (all levels – Student to Director)
  • Cost Manager
  • Commercial Manager (see that sector) 
  • Claims Consultant (including expert witness)
  • Cost Engineer

When our clients look to bring in a quantity surveyor, of any level, there are a few key areas of experience and qualifications that are commonly requested, although the specifics do vary. Typical requirements are:

  • Degree in Quantity Surveying
  • MRICS ( Member of Royal Institution of Chartered Surveyors)
  • ACostE (Association of Cost Engineers)
  • Previous experience within the role (similar projects / values / sized companies etc) 

Please get in touch if you'd like to discuss any of the jobs posted on our website, or if you'd like to have a confidential discussion about the Quantity Surveyor market and how we can help you. As well as providing general advice, we can help with salary benchmarking, updating your CV and interview preparation. 

Above all, we believe in building honest, long-term relationships with both clients and candidates. If you like the sound of that, let’s talk.

Speak to someone in our Quantity Surveying department now on 0131 510 4004.
