About the job

Taggart Earthmoving Ltd is a highly successful family owned and operated civil construction and diverse contracting business with bases in Christchurch and Rangiora. For over 65 years they have stood the test of time due to their focus on customer service, delivering a quality product and trustworthiness and in so doing, have gained a strong reputation for quality workmanship, reliability, and service. They also actively promote the importance of the environment they operate in, for example being foundation members of the Ashley-Rakahuri River Care Group and were the winners of the 2017 CCNZ Environmental Award.

They have also never been busier and as such, have an opportunity for a motivated QS to come on board and play an important role in their fast paced, solution-based deconstruction and Demolition Team for heavy commercial, multi-storey buildings through to residential demolitions projects.

Reporting to the Demolition Manager, this is a position with great growth potential and the capacity to expand your knowledge base while working alongside a team of passionate and driven professionals. You will mainly be doing the tendering work for Demolition with some Civils as well and some work on claims. With good energy levels you will be skilled in putting through tenders at a fast pace and be very accurate in doing so.

The ideal candidate has had experience within the civils industry and preferably has a carpenter’s background in order to understand how buildings can be de-constructed. A Christchurch network would be advantageous as over time, for the right person, opportunities to leverage this will come.

Skills and Experience:

NZ Diploma in Quantity Surveying
2-3 years’ experience working in a vertical build environment
Excellent knowledge of building methods and materials
Highly skilled in MS project and excel
Commercial awareness
Excellent planning and organisational skills
Excellent verbal and written communication skills
A positive, can do attitude
If you want a role that is office based but still allows you to take ownership for your projects and be involved at every stage, as well as getting out on site, then this position will provide you that opportunity.

Most of all we are interested in having a chat with candidates who are self-motivated, enjoy dealing with people and who can show appropriate use of their own initiative.
