With a watching brief on choice of material, cost, customer satisfaction and sales, and other critical issues, our Commercial team - which comprises Estimators, Quantity Surveyors and Material Buyers - has one objective: to deliver best quality homes, at the best possible cost. Their work is fundamental to our continued viability as a business and presents a fast-moving challenge that will exercise your creativity and commercial flair to the full.

SUMMARY OF THE ROLE

You'll minimise costs and maximise quality on a number of developments at a time. You'll check drawings for discrepancies and compliance, assess quotations, and schedule and place material and plant orders. And the more effective you are, the more you'll boost the commercial success of our business.
