Job description

Driving your career forward and learning to become a future business leader, you’ll:

  • Keep on growing your skills and developing your experience as part of our consulting, project management, building surveying and commercial services teams
  • Proofread documents and support bids for new business
  • Get a real insight into what you’re passionate about whether it’s project management, quantity surveying or building surveying
  • Realise your potential while developing a good understanding of our services and the added value the teams at Faithful+Gould and Atkins deliver
  • Develop and flex your communication skills to engage with customers and role model our values.

Quantity Surveyor
You’ll join us as a Quantity Surveyor and will help provide expert advice to our clients on construction costs. Our Quantity Surveyors work on a wide variety of schemes, in all sectors, including new university campuses, new road bridges, nuclear power stations, commercial office developments, refurbishment of listed buildings, the list is endless! You will learn to guide design teams, ensuring projects are designed within our clients’ budget and you will work with contractors, on site, managing construction costs for our clients. You will learn to be confident, a good communicator, problem solving and will develop your mathematical ability. You will be given the opportunity to grow, with a wide variety of projects to work on with an experienced, high performing team, to learn from.

Hinkley Point C

If you chose to be based in Bridgwater as a quantity surveyor, you will predominantly work on Hinkley Point C. Our talent and capability within the Nuclear Sector is highly recognised, and being a significant player in a new generation of UK Nuclear Power Stations means that we are now looking for Commercial Assistants to join our Commercial team to support our Clients project teams working on Nuclear New Build programmes. These roles will be as part of the integrated delivery teams and will provide both office and site based experience on some of the largest projects in Europe. You would join an established team and experience both pre and post contract experience across a range of contract forms. The location would be Bristol, but you will also be expected to spend some time on site at Hinkley Point (Bridgwater) during your graduate programme.

Building Surveyor
As a building surveyor you need to enjoy being out of the office. The nature of our projects and the work we do is hands on, you will likely be liaising directly with the client and project team as well as members of the public on a fairly frequent basis. Time spent back in the office will not be dull, for one thing there will always be a new project to work on – our teams are growing and our project variety with it – our building surveyors manage a number of projects at any one time, most likely all falling within a different sector from a local primary school extension to a medieval fortress to an prison building to a recording studio – pretty much anything property related across the public and private sector. Our services include party wall, dilapidations, technical due diligence, surveys, landlord and tenant relations and compliance. Our scope is not limited, nor is our potential. We are one of the leading providers of building surveying services within the UK, our national team will support you through your APC and beyond. If you’re looking for a varied project portfolio, which frequently takes you out of the office and enjoy being part of a large, social team then this is the discipline for you.

Project Management
Working as a project manager you will form an integral part of an established team of project and programme management practitioners and will be supported in career development. Our project managers are involved in some of the world’s largest construction projects as well as some of the most complex, requiring meticulous planning to ensure successful delivering to our clients and stakeholders. You will work in a wide variety of industry sectors and will develop your skills on a multitude of projects, learning from some of the best professionals in the world! You will learn to be confident, a good communicator, problem solving and will develop your management abilities.

Strategic Asset Management
