Working as part of a large contractor – you will be a crucial member of the team who specifically look after the Somerset and Devon area. You will directly report into the local Director and can enjoy a role where you are supported but also autonomous to develop the business further and lead on the commercial side of what they do.
The job is a varied one – predominately, they are looking for someone who has a proven track record as an estimator and with the construction refurbishment sector. Recent projects include healthcare, education and other public buildings – but the portfolio is very diverse within refurbishment.
You will be responsible for being client-facing, from initial briefing through to completion of the project. You can be as involved in the project as you see fit. You will compile estimates, manage costings, detail products and services, create budget controls, assess materials, labour and equipment. You will also analyse and work closely with suppliers to ensure quotes are managed fully.
It would be beneficial if you were experienced in the bill of quantities and if you had an eye for the details of the initial drawings and details – that would be an added bonus to your role.
If you have been working within a commercial team for over 5 years, with a keen eye for driving your estimating career further forwards, then this is a very exciting opportunity to succeed in a well established and profitable company.
