    Start working on getting the right contacts? Let people know you have people willing to work?
    Ringing round, emails, social media - even driving to job sites and talking to the gaffer.

    I can organise a free ticket for a construction networking online event which takes place in early February. Please send me PM if you are interested.

    Have a look around at local main contractors in the areas that you're looking to work in and find out who their Quantity Surveyors are.

    The QS on the project will be the one pulling together the enquiries and list of contractors that price the works. If you can get a good relationship there you should get some opportunities.

    Speaking from experience as a QS.

    Angel G, networking and building a good relationship with the right people locally who can give you the work is the key. When you have the contracts, build up a good reputation by delivering the work on time, budget and high quality. You would need a good QS to help you organise your team and how you deliver your jobs.
