Construction Estimator

Senior Estimator


Our client is a privately owned main contractor, specialising in new build commercial projects. They have been operating for over 50 years with a very strong ethos within mixed use developments, affordable housing schemes, and commercial projects.


About the Role:


Our client is currently requiring a Senior Estimator to join to the current team. Candidates will ideally be from a new build commercial background with some residential/ affordable housing experience. The individual must be able to communicate well with both commercial team and clients and have a professional but non adversarial approach with the emphasis of working together. This role will initially provide a lot of autonomy and will require the Estimator to prepare tender packages without the need for support and to engage and help manage the estimating team in all aspects of a senior role. You will ideally be able to comply with the following:




o    Reporting into the Estimating Director


o    Capable of fitting and integrating well into young and dynamic team


o    Supportive and assisting in the development of a young team


o    Ability to produce cost plans / Bill of Quantity’s from scratch


About the benefits / rewards:




Our client support, develop and understand their employees. They offer employee stability through permanent long-term employment and stable working environment. You will be well rewarded for your hard work with a remuneration package that will correspond to the individuals experience and skills. This will include a competitive basic salary, company car or car allowance, bonus scheme, pension & healthcare, which will be dependent upon the specific skills and experience of each individual. Employees will be promoted through the company at a rate that is comfortable for their abilities rather than within a set company structure. This encourages the strengths and successes of the company and each individual.








Candidates will have experience in a senior estimating role for a main contractor. Most importantly the candidate for this role must be trustworthy, reliable, conscientious and keen to progress their career further. You will also have to be a highly motivated individual and a strong team player.
