Job Title: Senior Bills of Quantities Expert

Location: Manchester, UK - Walker Sime (Hybrid & Flexible Working)

Passion for Bills of Quantities? Join Our Prestigious Team!

If you're someone who's genuinely passionate about Bills of Quantities, and you've always dreamt of being part of a team that appreciates your unique brilliance, then Walker Sime has a spot just for you! We're on the lookout for a Senior Bills of Quantities Expert to bring their expertise and enthusiasm to our close-knit crew. Imagine working on game-changing projects like the Manchester Airport Redevelopment, Everton Football Stadium, Edinburgh St James, and Manchester New Square – your impact will be huge!

About Us:

In '99, Dez Walker and Jon Sime sparked the inception of Walker Sime in Manchester. From a dynamic duo, we've evolved into one of the North West’s esteemed Construction Consultancies. Now thriving across three regional offices, our 80-strong team delivers top-tier services – Quantity Surveying, Project Management, Employers Agent, Commercial Consultancy, Dispute Resolution, Bills of Quantities, and Construction Design & Management.

Our pride? Being the go-to for technical brilliance and unmatched client service. We cherish the power of choice; our clients pick the people they work with, and they choose us. Their feedback resounds – our obsessive attention to detail, candid communication, and fearlessness to tackle challenges are reassuring. More than that, it's the enjoyment of working with our people that sets us apart. We don't just build relationships; we dig deeper to create rock-solid connections based on trust, respect, and likability.

Invitations to consult come, often via referrals, for a diverse mix of projects – from large-scale infrastructure to landmark regenerations. In every sector imaginable – marine, ports, roads, rail, airports, residential, commercial, industrial, distribution, storage, hotels, retail, waste to energy, gas, defence, health, education, and beyond.

Great businesses are built on great people, and we're no exception. In a recent audit, 24 clients were asked, “What do you like best about working with Walker Sime?” Their emphatic response was clear – “It’s all about the people.” Join us, where excellence is crafted, and projects become legacies.

The Role:

  • As a Senior Bills of Quantities Expert in our BQ Team, you won't just be crunching numbers; you'll be at the heart of creating Bills of Quantities and Detailed Builder's Quantities. Your day-to-day includes:
  • Measuring and billing work items with that client-friendly touch
  • Handing out tasks to our awesome quantity surveyors and setting deadlines together.
  • Collaborating with the Bill Production team to keep projects on track.
  • Connecting with our fantastic contractor clients.
  • Sorting out query sheets during the measurement process.
  • Keeping the Associate Director in the loop with regular project progress updates.
  • Juggling addenda information like a pro during the measurement and billing process.
  • Doing the first QA checks on Bill Sections and making sure everything's ship-shape.
  • Sending out Bills of Quantities/Detailed Builder's Quantities to our contractor clients.
  • Safely storing all bill measurement-related data – because we're organised like that.
  • Giving the Associate Director the heads up on any necessary amendments post QA checks.
  • Assisting in developing computer-aided measurement systems like CostX and Navisworks.

About You:

We're on the lookout for someone who:

  • Is a Bills of Quantities maestro with loads of hands-on experience.
  • Can't get enough of Bills of Quantities and wants to keep doing it!
  • Can talk the talk and write like a pro.
  • Knows how to thrive under the pressure of tight deadlines.
  • Is a walking encyclopedia on SMM7 & NRM2.
  • Has some know-how with CESSM4 (but if not, no worries).
  • Has a background with CostX, ConQuest, CATO, Q-Script, or similar.
  • Knows their way around Bluebeam, Navisworks & Revit, both for fun and for quantification.
  • Maybe has a bit of team management experience, but it's not a deal-breaker.

In Return:

We're not just a workplace; we're a family. We're all about making sure you have a life outside of work, and our hybrid and flexible working environment reflects that. At Walker Sime, diversity and inclusion aren't just words; they're the fabric of our culture. When you join our family at Walker Sime, you receive more than a job; you become part of a dynamic community where your skills and perspective are valued, and your professional growth is nurtured. Expect an inclusive, collaborative environment where your contributions make a real impact, and your work-life balance is a priority.

Join us to experience the Walker Sime difference and truly shine!
