Job Description

Façade and Glazing Solutions is delighted to partner with Elevation Recruitment Group in the recruitment of Quantity Surveyors.

About us:

Originally founded in 1982 and acquired by Saint Gobain/Glassolutions in 1990, Façade and Glazing Solutions (FGS) is a specialist glazing contractor experienced in the design, installation, refurbishment and repair of building façades.

The organisation has recently undergone a period of change. Recognising the potential for creating a sustainable business with a long-term growth prospect, CoBe Capital* acquired the business and re-branded to FGS in August 2018.

We are now launching the next phase of our transformation, and we are looking to increase our “firepower” for our long-term growth journey by adding high calibre individuals to a range of core functions.

To support this, we are recruiting for Quantity Surveyors in our Major Projects Team that specialises in full vertical envelope solutions for projects between £1m-£50m.

The role:

The successful candidate will work as a key part of the commercial team and will be responsible for negotiating new contracts with main contractors by identifying and managing contractual risks in JCT, NEC and bespoke sub-contractor drafts.

You will be required to produce detailed valuations, follow up and agree interim payments and fully manage and agree variations and extensions on-site with the FGS project team and customer QS.

As a Quantity Surveyor you will be involved in tenders through to negotiate financial accounts, assisting in settlements and claims maintaining a positive and professional working relationship with clients and subcontractors at all times.

Why FGS?

We create exciting technically complex façades and glazing solutions.

We have been involved with the most innovative and prestigious projects of national importance throughout the UK, such as the V&A museum in Dundee and the Hiscox building in York.

We have the resources and the expertise to deliver exceptional technical support for bespoke solutions to exceed clients’ expectations.

We aim to play a role in advancing the built environment and industry standards, through close collaboration with clients and construction partners.

We are safety-focused - our impeccable safety record delivers on high standards of care to both clients and their employees.

Employees have total support from senior managers.

The leadership team collaboratively develops realistic and attainable business plans.

The Person:

The successful candidate will have the following skills and experience:

• Working knowledge of architectural façade products, including architectural glass, aluminium windows, doors, curtain walling and cladding would be an advantage
• Excellent commercial focus to protect and achieve tendered margins
• Ideally a qualification in Quantity Surveying
• Excellent attention to detail and attentive to process
• Excellent communication and negotiation skills
• Good team player and the ability to be positive and develop others

What’s in it for you?

We provide development, coaching and positive leadership, encouraging employees to problem solve and actively participate in the operation of the company.

We provide financial incentives and rewards for achieving goals.

We identify and invest heavily in key performers.

Join the Team:

FGS’s culture is evolving, and our ambition is to provide a culture where participation is integral to the success of the business.

Since our launch in August 2018 we have established a habitat for opportunity seekers.

If you feel FGS is the business for your next move or would like further information, please apply or contact Elevation Recruitment Group today.
