We’re changing it up
We’re on a mission to build the UK’s finest digital infrastructure and unleash Britain’s potential. Together, we’re achieving incredible things. We may have big ambitions, but we never lose sight of what matters. That’s why we’ve created an open, inclusive environment where people can be themselves, where wellbeing and mental health come first, where we take a flexible approach to working, and where everyone has the chance to pursue their passions, keep learning and grow their careers. We’re changing up Britain and we’re changing up the workplace with better rewards, more opportunities to grow and the chance to make a difference to communities across the UK.
A rewarding career
We’re passionate about our work and we’re passionate about our people too - with a starting salary of £24,000 , you'll receive incremental increases over a set period, providing you are achieving your objectives. You’ll also enjoy benefits like 25 days’ holiday, a day off on your birthday, a day off to support a charity or organization of your choice, performance-related bonus scheme, and private healthcare.
The support to succeed
When you join the CityFibre family, you’ll get all the support and opportunity you need to grow your career, learn new skills and fulfil your potential. You’ll receive a personalised development plan tailored to your role and ambitions, that will help you expand your knowledge and reach your goals. Your Line Manager will help you understand how CityFibre operates as a whole, and you’ll be assigned a Mentor who will also support your progression. And if you’re interested in exploring Management-level opportunities, you can join our highly successful Aspiring Managers Programme and fast track your career.
How can you change it up?
Our Quantity Surveyors play a vital role in delivering digital infrastructure across the UK by building strong, collaborative relationships with our build partners and teams, ensuring a smooth process and maximum quality across every build. Working as part of our Supply Chain division, you will focus on either one city or multiple cities, managing the commercial resources of your assigned build, mitigating risks, maintaining relationships and ultimately, protecting CityFibre both contractually and commercially. You’ll also;
- Value contractors’ work and certify interim and final payments
- Assess and authorise submission of project variations
- Assess, review and mitigate commercial and contractual risks through implementing our policies for risk management
- Provide commercial and contractual expertise to city build teams, including producing valuation certification, issuing correspondence, claims, budget monitoring and producing contract/workstream performance data
What will you bring to the role?
Quantity Surveyors are key players when it comes to commercial and contractual decisions, so you’ll need to have some understanding of commercial management. This can be demonstrated through any relevant experience or by having a degree in a related field. In addition to this, it will also be ideal for you to have:
- Strong communication skills to be able to negotiate with suppliers and partners
- Good working knowledge of Microsoft Excel so that you can interpret spreadsheets and collate data
- Presentation and report writing skills
- HNC/HND level education, or equivalent
Our unique culture
We are proud to be an equal opportunity employer; we celebrate diversity, we believe everyone has a voice and we’re committed to creating an inclusive environment for all. Even though we come from different backgrounds and do different jobs, we’re united by The CityFibre Way - our unique code of behaviours that inspires how we think, act and work. We back each other, think smart and act fast, and we’re passionate about giving it our best to build a legacy together.
