As Commercial Manager (Quantity Surveyor) you will oversee a workbook worth in excess of £12million annually, implementing commercial best practice and ensuring that value to the business is maximised, whilst the risks and costs are minimised. You will be responsible for sub contract management, supporting with regular CVRs and cross business reports. As Commercial Manager you will liaise directly with the client, and work closely with Operational Route Managers. Whilst functioning as part of a larger contract, you will manage a small team of 1 direct report and will be responsible for their growth and development within Amey.

The role can be undertaken remotely, however you will need to visit the Glasgow office around 4 times per month.
