QS Cadetships


At Livingstone we encourage those who are interested in Quantity Surveying to become involved in our Quantity Surveyor Cadetship programme.

Livingstone take on a number of cadets, enabling them valuable and practical onsite experience during their Tertiary studies. We sponsor and mentor students throughout their development and encourage them to move through their training and into our Junior Quantity Surveying team.

As a Quantity Surveyor you will learn and be responsible for preparing trade packages; letting and reviewing contracts and quotations; analysing tenders and valuations; preparing costings and reports; attending site meetings and reporting information to site teams/subcontractors and completing contracts and agreements.

These roles are extremely valuable to construction organisations and a fantastic work opportunity. For more information on vacancies or to register your interest, follow the link below.
