Graduate and Assistant Quantity Surveyors

We are able to help Graduate Quantity Surveyors and Assistant Quantity Surveyors into their first job, and offer personal advice on the best in house training programmes available that suit your career ambitions and choice of direction.

Intermediate Quantity Surveyors

With 1-4 years' experience on site or in clients' offices, you are a very marketable asset in a market desperately short of skilled people. Capable Intermediate Quantity Surveyors can command impressive increases in salary over a short period of time.

Quantity Surveyors & Senior Quantity Surveyors

Once you can work fully independently on significant commercial tasks, either in the office or on site, you further increase in value to an employer.  At this point it is valuable to be starting to make choices about the sector you are keen to specialise in, as moving sectors or specialist fields from here onwards may require a move back down the ladder and drop in salary.   It may be wise to confirm you career development plan, and agree funding for any external training you think you need to progress yourself.

Managing Quantity Surveyors & Commercial Managers

At this level, positions are less frequently advertised, and selection for roles often becomes a particularly rigorous process involving 2, 3 or more interviews.  Maxim can advise on the best way to approach these difficult moments in breaking into the top flight of the quantity surveying discipline.  We also usually have a significant number of positions to discuss with you that are not advertised on the open market or even with the larger construction recruitment agencies.
