All the best construction jobs are based in London, some people say. It’s a self-perpetuating myth that if you want to work on the most interesting and challenging projects while getting a decent salary, you need to find a job in London. The reality is that there are plenty of good construction jobs across the UK, and you don’t need to pay a fortune in rent or travel to be in one. Type, “quantity surveyor jobs near me” into your search engine of choice and see what comes up.
Or even better, if you are fed up with the nonsense results from job aggregating (stealing / collating / mushing together) websites such as Indeed and the like, let a quality construction recruitment agency consultancy like Maxim Recruitment do the hard work for you to check out and shortlist your options.
If you have been wondering where quantity surveyors are in demand outside of super-expensive London, here are just a few examples of the best QS jobs for Quantity Surveyors, Project Quantity Surveyors, Senior Quantity Surveyors and Commercial Managers in other locations in the UK.
Commercial Manager Jobs North West
If you’re searching for construction jobs in the North West, we have a few commercial manager jobs that may fit the bill. Our commercial manager jobs in Crewe include a Company and Project Commercial Manager for a privately owned power, rail and construction contractor, taking over responsibility for the commercial and financial aspects. This company also has a commercial manager job in York, which would see you fulfilling the same role for a different region.
Airport Commercial Manager Jobs
If you’re looking for airport commercial manager jobs in Manchester, we’re currently recruiting for a commercial manager with a specialist airport baggage handling contractor. This role is to provide professional contract management, procurement and administration to support the delivery of complex automation system projects within an airport environment. However, if you want to be based near London or the South East, we also have an airport commercial manager job at Heathrow.
Quantity Surveyor Jobs Midlands
If you’re after a quantity surveyor job in the East Midlands, there are vacancies in Leicestershire that may be of interest. Openings for an assistant quantity surveyor and project quantity surveyor in Market Harborough are currently live on the Maxim Recruitment website, working on international construction and development projects. Offering interesting work and a competitive salary in an attractive location, we think these two roles are some of the best quantity surveying jobs available in Leicestershire.
