Summary

Good day

I’m a 50 year old qualified Quantity Surveyor with over 20 years’ experience within multiple disciplines in Construction. Included, but not limited, to this is Building, Civils, Mining, Oil and Gas and Renewables.
Although I come from a Quantity Surveyor background, I have been operating as a Contracts/Commercial Manager for the past 12 + years. I have also, on numerous occasions, operated and acted for and on behalf of the Project Manager as well.
I am currently on a short term assignment with SNC Lavalin working as a Senior Contracts/ Commercial Manager on the Balama Graphite Mine Project in Northern Mozambique, but ideally I’m looking for permanent or long term contract employment in South Africa.
