Job description

I am currently recruiting for an Estimator. The role is with a main building contracting business that will deliver a range of traditional and design & build projects.

The projects delivered range in value from £500K to £5M and area mix of new build, refurbishment and re-modification schemes.

As an Estimator you would be responsible for:-

  • Researching materials, equipment and labour costs;
  • Gathering quotes from sub-contractors and suppliers;
  • Assessing the levels of risk on a project;
  • Analysing company data, exchange rates and prices using software packages;
  • Preparing and submitting quotations for work;
  • Helping with bids for new contracts and supporting buying activities;
  • Monitoring the stages of a project to make sure that costs are kept in line with forecasts.

Applicants should hold a construction related degree or equivalent and hold a strong level of numeracy and IT skills.

As an estimator, you will need to be analytical and have good organisational skills - you will often be required to make assessments in relation to construction budget cost from very limited information.
