Project Quantity Surveyor – Teesside
In Solomons 24 years of business, the North East has never been more pivotal or important to UK as it is right now. Across our region, from the Port of Tyne to the banks of the River Tees, businesses large and small are gearing up to seize the opportunities on our doorstep. From the Dogger Bank Sofia Wind Farm project, to hydrogen production, storage and carbon capture projects, the North East is a hive of activity. Ground breaking projects such as these often remain an aspirational idea, new technologies and approaches require pioneers and risk takers to bring them to life. Local SME businesses and specialist subcontractors are ideally placed to work with these clients and investors and have the skills and imagination to work with them to bring these projects from concept to reality.
Working in multiple sectors such as M&E, Power and Transmission, Subsea cabling, Infrastructure, Utilities and Civil Engineering, our people enjoy a greater level of autonomy and ownership at Solomons. Rather than being a small cog in a larger machine, our QS’s often hold ‘cradle to grave’ responsibility for the full range of commercial and contractual services. This level of involvement brings with it a sense of purpose, job satisfaction and pride. Our people help their clients to meet their aspirations for the project, whilst at the same time supporting the creation of sustained growth, local jobs and ensuring a boost to the local economy.
Contract: Permanent, Full Time
Salary: Highly Competitive + generous car allowance or prestigious company car
