  Edinburgh, Scotland


That's Epic Engineering

Big projects. Stretching projects. Epic projects. As a graduate Quantity Surveyor, you'll be actively involved in all stages of them. Through a combination of on-the-job experience and continual development, we offer a unique learning ground for graduates who are committed and passionate about a career in quantity surveying.

Our Locations

Rosyth might be the most unique of our sites within Marine and Technology. Nearly all our teams have a foothold here, so the range of work is huge. Right now, projects within the oil and gas, renewables and commercial marine sectors are making use of our unique mix of engineering, design and manufacturing skills. In the past year alone, we started work on over 70 subsea modules for BP and completed a complex vessel refit programme. Alongside these commercial projects, we also take on some warship support work and took care of over 50% of the detailed design for the UK's new aircraft carriers, the largest and most powerful ships ever built for the Royal Navy. It's epic stuff. Which is why we look for real team players with the right attitude and technical skills to get involved in projects like these. In return, you'll get experience in five incredible sectors (naval and commercial marine, renewables, oil and gas, liquid gas equipment, and civil nuclear) and enjoy the support of a dedicated graduate management team.

What you'll be doing

Delivering projects of the scale we work on, against strict requirements, is an exact science. You'll experience this first hand. You'll be helping to develop plans of key valuation activities. Preparing costing and valuation proposals and technical estimates. Reviewing technical specifications and responses to tenders or quotations. All the time making sure that we comply with industry regulations and statutory health, safety, and environmental requirements.
