As a Quantity Surveyor with PlanCost you will join a team inspired to create balance, harmony and efficiency in the buildings we help build

The Opportunity

Most of us begin our career chasing a ‘dream job’ with a big name company in the city. The reality is often long hours, long commutes and limited experiences.

For an experienced Quantity Surveyor, we offer an ideal balance of autonomy and mentorship. What’s special about working with us is the opportunity to manage projects from inception to completion. You will be mentored by our Managing Director to develop the skills that lead to a more comprehensive career profile.

Our mission is to positively influence the design of the buildings that shape the community where we live, learn and play. Our holistic philosophy of providing our clients with much more than a set of numbers, leads to a greater sense of purpose in the work we do.

About You, with Us

As our Quantity Surveyor, you will work on every element of cost planning for the full project life-cycle. We work on projects up to $100M in value and across a range of industries in metro Melbourne and regional Victoria. You’ll be involved with tender estimates, analysis and evaluation, pre/post contract administration and value engineering.

Confidence managing relationships with integrity must be present as you will be directly involved with clients and stakeholders. Whilst you will take ownership of projects, you’ll still enjoy working closely with each team member, and Tier - our K9 ‘well-being officer’. 

A Tertiary qualification in Quantity Surveying or Construction Management, followed by a minimum of two years’ experience as a Quantity Surveyor is essential. The ideal candidate will possess the ability to be resourceful and solutions oriented, have local market knowledge, strong administrative skills and solid Word & Excel.

The Location

PlanCost was established in 1999 in the gorgeous suburb of Research. The natural setting is our inspiration as we strive to help create harmony between a building’s purpose and the environment. Away from the unrelenting, built up environment of the CBD, our mission and values come to life.

The Benefits

Our location also means we spend less time commuting and have more time for life outside of work. Whether it’s family, friends, education or play; balance is our motto. So much so it’s the theme behind our logo. We are also open to discussing the possibility of part time/flexible hours.

At PlanCost, you will be mentored and not micro-managed, developed and not over looked, challenged but not over worked.
