Job Information

AECOM Graduate Quantity Surveyor - Immediate Start in Glasgow, United Kingdom

United Kingdom - Scotland, Edinburgh

Job Summary

We have an immediate graduate opportunity in Scotland for a Quantity Surveying graduate, ideally with some post graduate experience, to join our cost management team, to help provide cost management services to our clients in Scotland. AECOM provides Cost Management services to Clients in both the public and private sector, and to organisations in all areas of the Construction Industry including:

  • Commercial – new build, refurbishment and fit out for major property developers

  • Healthcare facilities

  • Defence facilities

  • Education establishments including schools, academies and universities

  • Leisure and Culture projects such as theatres, concerts halls and museums

  • Infrastructure schemes, including large scale rail, highways and water projects.

Graduates will have the opportunity to work on local projects, as well as to interact with teams based across the UK and potentially further afield.

You will also have chance to be involved in all stages of a project; from initial project definition and brief, cost planning, through to procurement, construction and building use. You will have opportunity to work with a wide variety of clients including some very high-profile names, often working alongside other construction professionals in multi-disciplinary teams. We believe that actually doing the work itself gives the best opportunity to learn, so you can expect to be given responsibility, and will need to be able to work both autonomously and as part of a team, all whilst receiving the guidance and support to allow you to develop.

  • Capability to satisfy client and business expectations and be able to consider the wider financial and commercial implications of their actions.
