Job title: Associate (Development & Cost Advisory)

  • Demonstrated skills in business planning, business case development and financial reporting;
  • Proven experience in the ability to lead, influence and communicate with others and in creating high performing teams;
  • The ability to operate successfully in a commercial environment and previous experience of managing project commercial performance is necessary. Strong business acumen and commercial awareness is required to assess margin, risk and cashflow;
  • A valid construction industry White Card.


  • Quantity Surveying duties inclusive of Cost Planning, Risk Management, Contract Administration & Commercial Management of a variety of projects & productive assets ranging in value from $5m to $300M+;
  • Accountable for the activities of the cost advisory department, providing advice and guidance to other members of the team;
  • In conjunction with the relevant team member(s), be accountable for the profitability of the project(s), and develop an appropriate commercial strategy for the project(s) to ensure delivery of required margins;
  • Contribute to the management and maintenance of a contract cost reporting system, ensuring all financial information is managed and up-to-date and tracked with budget/tender allowances, commitments and deviations highlighted and managed;
  • Standardise internal processes and reporting for internal Quality Management systems
  • With other members of the team, produce and provide accurate forecasts of project cost to completion and final value;
  • Continually monitor projected costs to completion in line with budget;
