M&E Quantity Surveyor jobs

At Cobalt, we have a great Construction, Infrastructure and Property team who are dedicated to delivering the best recruitment solutions to the clients we work with. Our consultants build long-term agreements with our clients and have in some cases hired whole teams.

M&E Quantity Surveyor/Cost Manager

Although sometimes seen as the “black art” of surveying, that many do not fully understand, it is a core fundamental aspect of most construction projects. This specialist area can offer excellent progression and salary potential for individuals who enjoy the focused environment. We recruit M&E Quantity Surveyors & Cost Managers into various companies within the construction sector who offer positions delivering an integral aspect of projects. This includes large rail and power schemes, major office, residential or hotel developments through to core M&E data centre and T&D works.

Our clients are looking for those who have a degree and are ideally MRICS qualified. Although, in this niche area, experience speaks volumes over qualifications therefore candidates with a strong understanding, knowledge and delivery experience of M&E projects is key.

As an M&E Quantity Surveyor/Cost Manager there is excellent career progression opportunity in terms of salary with the potential to work on a cross section of development sectors and projects. On average remunerations levels in this sector are 10% - 15% higher than in general Quantity Surveying/Cost Management. Professionals will often develop their career within a larger consultancy and then move on to either managing that division or progressing to an M&E specialist organisation or client side position. Due to the shortage in this area and the specificity of the role, we work with a number of clients and candidates who are looking for the flexibility of a contract / freelance position.

Cobalt can assist you with your career. We can put you in touch with the best companies within this field as we have excellent contacts across the industry. We have over fifteen years of experience recruiting professionals so get in touch with the team today to ensure your career is moving forward.
