Northern Gas Networks - Senior Quantity Surveyor

Our Client

Northern Gas Networks are owned by a consortium of three partners all of whom are committed to supporting our business in its mission to deliver a safe and reliable gas service, provide excellent customer service, and go the extra mile for the communities we serve.

They cover an area that stretches from Cumbria to the North East and much of Yorkshire.

Northern Gas Networks are a new client, this was the first assignment that we were provided to trial our services. Following our success with this opportunity we look forward to supporting Northern Gas Networks with future vacancies.

Assignment Details

Northern Gas Networks have been appointed to manage five high pressure gas pipeline diversions for Network Rail, for their TransPennine electrification programme. The Senior Commercial Manager required a new hire to support these projects.

AR Resourcing were appointed to recruit a Senior Quantity Surveyor to develop commercial and procurement strategies across a portfolio of regional utility capital projects.

We were briefed to identify senior quantity surveyors with strong infrastructure project experience from relevant contractors or subcontractors. Post contract management of variations and claims to a high level was also required.

What We Did

We provided Northern Gas Networks our Contingent Exclusive (Plan 2) recruitment service, we were exclusive for a fixed period to identify, qualify and present suitable candidates.

We contacted our active and passive candidate network across local infrastructure contractors and subcontractors.

As this was exclusive, we head hunted from a number of competitors to identify new candidates, and we prioritised this assignment over all Contingent roles.

We also advertised the role on our website, LinkedIn, job boards and our Job Alerts candidate email to help identify additional candidates.

The challenge with this assignment was finding candidates of an appropriate calibre within the salary band, as Northern Gas Networks salary bands didn’t initially line up to the contracting candidate pool that we were approaching. When interviewing candidates we qualified their experience of relevant project exposure and client facing stakeholder experience.

The Outcome

Three CVs were shortlisted within two weeks, two candidates were selected for interview.

One candidate was immediately offered and appointed as they were keen to secure their services in a competitive market.
