Job description

Description: Capital Delivery brings together all of the major Construction, tunneling, excavating, overhead line and cabling work that tends to be associated with large projects for both gas and electricity transmission. Our work is often less obvious to the public because our projects include such things as laying gas pipelines and electricity transmission lines across the whole sweep of the British countryside. There could hardly be a more exciting time to join our Capital Delivery Industrial Placement Programme. We'll be investing some 1.5 billion in our electricity and gas transmission systems over each of the coming years, and it will be Capital Delivery's job to make sure we do so safely to time and budget, and to strict quality standards. The Capital Delivery Contracts team are critical to ensuring that value is created in awarding effective and efficient contracts and ensuring that the value is protected through robust contract management during delivery in support of the delivery team on behalf of Capital Delivery. Join us on this 12-month industrial placement during your penultimate year at University and you'll have opportunity to experience the important role our existing Quantity Surveyors play in ensuring our Delivery Teams maintain the integrity of the electric and gas network. You'll be supporting our project teams in the delivery of projects to time and budget. Positioning you at the forefront of one of our regional teams you'll be working alongside some of the best in the business. You will develop your existing skills whilst adding to your future QS toolkit. With a lot of site based work, you'll be able to see first-hand how we work constantly strive to improve our energy networks. Your role will be to support the Quantity Surveyor (QS) in their role of assisting the Project Engineers with the delivery of Capital Projects on the Electricity Transmission and Gas Transmission Networks. The Junior QS will play a key role in ensuring that National Grid delivers the construction of assets efficiently. On large projects the Junior QS will assist in protecting National Grid's commercial interests through the validation of the contractor's invoices, and the review of Early Warning Notices, Notices of Compensation Events, and assessment of Contractor Claims. In time the Junior QS will be made responsible for all of the commercial management of smaller projects to support the Project Engineers. In Capital Delivery, we are committed to the personal development of our staff. Joining us, you'll be supported as you develop a wide range of leadership, business and technical skills through structured training and on the-job experience. And you'll work closely with your line manager to establish and navigate through a Personal Development Plan that is tailored to your needs. If you have delivered excellent performance during your placement year, you will be offered a full time position as a Junior Quantity Surveyor with National Grid (starting salary 29,993) commencing September 2018. The added bonus is that National Grid will also then fund you to finish your degree over 2 years as you return part time to University to complete your degree whilst gaining on the job experience.
