Establishing material take-offs for our standard and bespoke product, ensuring cost effective procurement of the raw materials in a timely manner to ensure delivery in line with programme requirements will be a key function of the role. Furthermore, you will be an integral part of the team responsible for engaging, overseeing and expanding our database of key subcontractors and suppliers to assist in delivery of our quality product as we enter a period of expansion across the business.

RICS qualifications and / or a degree in Quantity Surveying or Procurement related studies would be beneficial.
