The Role & The Candidate
You will be responsible for the estimating of projects during the tender stage and construction. You will be joining the commercial team, being a key member with understanding and knowledge of building regulations. You will be working in a fast-paced environment, with involvement in the client/customer relations.
Ideally, you will come from a construction background and you will have experience & knowledge of working within a steelwork manufacturing environment, along with composite cladding and general construction.
You will be able to work effectively under pressure and to tight deadlines. Excellent communication skills are a must as you will be liaising between other departments within the company, as well as customers.
The company employ their own steelwork and cladding engineers and also fabricate all of what they use, so estimates are built up based on labour and materials rates, quantities etc. to arrive at a price. Therefore, this role would not suit an assistant estimator from a main contractor background, who split a building down into packages, send them out to sub-contractors for pricing and then bolts all the prices back together, to come up with one price for the building. It will suit someone with some experience in ‘traditional’ estimating, that wants to take on more responsibilities but with full support.
