Quantity Surveyor Jobs Scotland
A professional role within the Construction industry, quantity surveyors are in high demand for their skills involved in managing and minimising costs during construction projects. Surveyor jobs therefore require candidates to have in-depth knowledge of the building process as a whole.
As a quantity surveyor, you'll play a key role in the costing, planning and building process, and can work either with the building company or as a contractor. To this end, you'll need to be a skilled mediator as well as having strict attention to detail. You'll also be responsible for risk management and dealing with any legal implications of planned work, so prior knowledge of quality control, industry standards and protocols will be advantageous.
When it comes to qualifying for quantity surveyor jobs, Scotland and indeed the UK as a whole require a relevant, accredited degree or qualification approved by the Royal Institute of Chartered Surveyors (RICS). These range from a named degree in surveying itself to qualifications within the engineering industry, such as civil or structural engineering. If you're looking for trainee quantity surveyor jobs, you can choose to work as a survey technician until you're more experienced or study these courses alongside your current position.
