Senior Claims Consultants – London based with 50% overseas travel to MEA

The Company

Systech International is a highly successful, privately owned, construction consultancy business with a proven 25-year track record in the niche markets of contract administration, construction claims and dispute management.

Systech’s headquarters are in London and we employ 500+ staff through a network of regional and branch offices, worldwide.

We have an established and growing international client base in the Middle East and Africa region, in particular in the rail and power sectors.


The Position

We have long-term opportunities based out of our London office for experienced Senior Claims Consultants who are keen to work up to 50% of their time overseas in the Middle East and Africa region – most likely supporting our clients in locations, including Qatar, UAE, KSA and RSA.

The Senior Claims Consultant positions will suit flexible and mobile individuals who are able to operate largely under their own supervision and who have the drive and self-motivation to produce detailed and thorough cost and time claims reports, to a high level of quality.

Site visits of up to 1 month at a time will be required with the purpose of extracting pertinent information and evidence from key project team members to support the claim narrative and to understand and clarify complex technical issues. This will require a measure of tact and diplomacy to work with the key project team members and to build relationships and trust in a multi-disciplinary and multi-cultural environment. 

The site visits would be followed by a period of up to 1 month spent working in Systech’s London office to analyse the data, research the arguments, review case histories and produce the narrative for a number of cost and time claims. Due to the number of claims, their complex nature and potentially high value we envisage several site visits overseas of 1 month each will be required.


Candidate Requirements:

  • Must have a strong interest in working overseas and enjoy a flexible and mobile work
  • British BSc QS Hons Degree
  • MRICS or FRICS qualified with construction law qualification (e.g LLM)
  • Around 15-20+ years major project experience in either the rail and/or power (nuclear/fossil fuel) sectors
  • Have successfully produced claims reports on a consultancy basis
  • Have a thorough understanding of the complex technical methods of construction and systems employed in construction of rail and power projects
  • Excellent command of spoken and written English combined with professional presentation skills
  • Flexibility to travel and work away from UK for up to 1 month at a time
  • UK passport holders preferred (preferable for foreign worker visa requirements) Other nationalities will be considered (visa restrictions may apply in some locations)
  • 50% of time spent working overseas on single status.
  • An excellent health record


The Senior Claims Consultant positions are offered on a single status basis and with an excellent package, including expat level remuneration, accommodation (when site or project based overseas) and benefits for the right individual.
