With four of our main Board Directors calling Cumbria home, we can truly say this special place has captured our hearts as well as our mind. We are now looking to attract a high performing team of Project Quantity Surveyors to live, work and train in Cumbria to support our growth plans, which include establishing a new office in the “energy hub” of West Cumbria, in addition to our current base near Kendal.

A dedicated talent team is on hand to help our people reach their career aspirations. Bespoke training and career development plans are aligned to Client project deliverables.

As an RICS accredited practice, we have structured Associate and APC programmes in place.


As a Project Quantity Surveyor / Senior Quantity Surveyor, you will be assigned to work with one of Solomons Tier 1 EPC or Specialist Sub Contractors operating in the region.
