Job description

We have a number of exciting opportunities across the UK&I for Trainee Quantity Surveyors (Cost Consultants) to work within our project cost consultancy teams. Our cost consultancy services extends to all sectors of the construction industry in the UK and around the world, so you could be working on projects as diverse as a new build office development or a new build high rise residential tower in London, through to sports stadia in Qatar for World Cup 2022.

Predominantly you will be working within the office environment, however you will have the opportunity to see working construction sites. You will work under the close supervision of senior colleagues and the nature of the work can be fast paced to meet the client and project deadlines. The role requires sound logic, analytical and excellent communication skills.

As a Trainee Quantity Surveyor, you will be actively involved across all stages of a project. Right from the initial project definition and brief, to design cost appraisal, through to procurement, construction and building use, you will have the opportunity to work with a wide variety of clients working in teams, alongside other construction professionals (Architects, Engineers and the like). 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 independently and as part of a team, all whilst receiving the guidance and support to allow you to develop.

Person requirements

Our Structured Training Excellence Programme (STEP) is designed to recruit school-leavers who show commitment, aptitude and enthusiasm, into science, engineering and technology careers with us. You will combine work-based on-the-job training and learning with further studies and must be willing to progress your career. After an initial probationary period you must be willing to undertake a day release course at a further education college to study a BTEC Level three or HND in a relevant discipline which would be funded by AECOM. Your NVQ Level three will be achieved during this time through your work experience.

Driven by the successful completion of BTEC Level three or a HNC the successful applicant may want to continue their studies at a higher level. AECOM fully expects this and is keen to develop and nurture its talent. For those wishing to progress their education AECOM may continue to support individuals through an appropriate part-time BSc/BEng degree course to support you towards incorporated engineer status and subsequently chartered engineer status.
