Job Description

Job Title:Estimator
Location:Salford
Salary:£30k - £35k plus £5k car allowance, bonus, pension

The Opportunity
Are you stuck in a boring costing and estimating role? Are you looking for the chance to show what you're made of?

We have the job for you!

We're a highly successful construction business who have recently developed a new division and are looking for a future leader to train and mentor into a position of seniority. As cliché as it sounds you will be coming in at the ground level and the plan is, once you've found your feet, to build a team up underneath you.

The Role
In your Estimator role you'll work closely with our Director to put together commercially viable proposals for facilities services and minor works contracts. This means you'll be front and centre of commercial strategy and implementation whilst using your technical knowledge to develop great working relationships with our clients and keep building the business.

Word has already spread about our new division throughout our existing customers so tenders and quote requests for our services are flooding in but we need you as an Estimator to visit those client sites, survey them and price up works for bids. From there you'll be part of the team completing frameworks whilst keeping those clear lines of communication with customers.

As we are a start-up there are a thousand little jobs to be done alongside your day-to-day estimating role and we'll also invest a lot of training and development in you so, when you good find a (rare) quiet moment there's lots to keep you busy.

The Candidate
If you have a background in estimating or costing we'd love to hear from you!

To be able to hit the ground running you will need a knowledge of costing for construction projects, any experience in estimating facilities management or M&E services would be a real bonus, and it goes without saying that you'd need to understand standard building contracts.

We're looking for a keen bean. If you're an Estimator who's stuck in a dead-end job but has bags of potential or even a Junior QS with a hunger to progress in something slightly different if you're willing to work hard and take on training we'd love to have a chat to see if we'd be the right fit for you.

Owing to the nature of the role you will need a full UK driving licence.

The Company
We're an interesting proposition; our construction arm is 50 years old and going strong but our Directors are now looking to diversify and have set up a facilities division, so we're a start up with the backing and clout of a well-established business.

There's lots of room to grow here and it's an incredible opportunity to create a position for yourself and work as the right-hand of the person who's currently running the company. If you're a looking to move into the spot light and really affect the way a successful business operates for the foreseeable future this is the job for you.
