Senior Quantity Surveyor

  • Full-time

Ward Williams is an independent built environment consultancy, with a big conscience – the first Chartered Surveying firm to become a B Corp – we are determined to set a new standard of excellence throughout the UK and Europe.

For 50 years we have been creating impactful solutions in The Built Environment. Delivering for clients today and helping create a future for us all tomorrow. We are committed to tracking and improving our impact on People, Places and Planet – that’s how we use the B Corp framework. We believe business can and should be a force for good and it was this belief that started our journey towards becoming a B Corp to increase our positive impact on people and the planet. Ward Williams became a fully certified B Corp in 2020, cementing our commitment to openness, accountability and transparency.

Ward Williams uses the combined skills of our different disciplines and creativity to develop holistic solutions to complex situations or problems.
