Cost Consultant / Cost Manager

£40,000 - £60,000 pa

London, UK



Date Advertised:23rd May 2018

Start Date:22nd June 2018

Do you want to work for an exciting developer based in the city of London? Are you seeking to work on projects from £30 - £800 million? Do you have experience of working for a main contractor or consultancy as a Cost Consultant or Cost Manager? Are you seeking a salary up to £60,000 plus pension, private health care, 10% bonus? If so please read on....

My client are one of the largest Developers in Europe and have a strong London presence but are still growing and need to add to their current commercial team. They generally work on commercial new build projects in Zones 1-4 with a build value on average of £80 million. However, they have a huge project kicking off in late 2019 that will need a lot of Cost Planning for.

This client have a very fresh approach and buy land, usually demolish what's there and try to build something in it's place that is iconic and a better design. They have an in-house construction team who will build the project and therefore the ideal candidate will be somebody who can work on a project from inception to completion.

They have a very fresh way of working, dress down in the office, flexible working hours and like people that challenge the way they do things. They are always looking for new ideas and encourage all staff to bring in new ideas.

The role of Cost Consultant bias will provide pre & post contract advice and will report into the Head of Commercial, in London.

Other duties will consist of:

  • Undertake feasibility cost estimates, provide cost advice of alternative design solutions and offer commercial advice in the development of the design prior to appointment of trade contractors.
  • Understand & communicate risk associated with design proposals.
  • Deliver post contract duties including payment, cost reporting, trade contract administration and deliver total project cost management and reporting.
  • Identify better buying, value management and supply chain opportunities to deliver an optimised cost & value solution.
  • Undertake data collection to support benchmarking, internal databases and knowledge management.
  • Provide support to senior colleagues.

The ideal candidate is somebody from either a main contractor or pqs company who has experience of working on multi million pound projects. Professional qualification or desire to secure a professional qualification are also desirable.

I feel this is an excellent opportunity for either somebody looking at working for a very exciting developer or somebody just looking to expand their career. In my opinion there are not many companies with this much pipeline for the next 4-5 years.

If you would like to know more about the role and the company please apply for this role or email in your CV and I'll be in touch.
