Job Description

Undertaking a year out gives great insight to the day-to-day demands of the role of a Cost Consultant and allows for students to practically apply what has been taught at university.  Placements also allow students to build relationships within the organisation and develop self-confidence and personal ability.  When Year outs return to university it means they can concentrate solely on their studying rather than spending vital time job hunting and in many instances a Graduate will return with a first-class degree.

  • Preparation of Cost Plans and Cost Reports
  • Estimating and Benchmarking of costs
  • Preparation of contract documentation 
  • To provide support in the delivery of projects and professional assignments.

  • To deliver elements of assignments under the supervision of more senior members of staff 
  • To provide all work outputs in an accurate and timely manner.

  • To provide general support to the team.
