London based, but working on particular DC projects, you will be able to use your full depth of commercial experience to work with some exciting clients as you navigate them through the different aspects of data centre projects.

  • QS degree qualified
  • Experience of working on M&E or MEP projects
  • Ideally UK or European data centre project experience

If you are interested in this Consultancy Cost Manager role, please do not hesitate to apply.

On application a further technical discussion on the role and key experience, skills and duties can be held.
