We are working with a highly successful and award winning regional building contractor and developer who would generally work with Local Authorities, Housing Associations and other third parties together with their own development work.
They typically build Houses, Apartments, Offices and Care Homes around Merseyside and due to planned expansion would like to add to their Commercial team.
They are now in a position to recruit an experienced Estimator to bolster their current team in line with planned expansion and an extremely healthy pipeline of work.
This is a new role and a great opportunity for an experienced estimator to put in place systems, procedures and software packages of their own choosing to truly make the role their own and build upon their past experience.
Working with the commercial, technical and delivery teams you will be responsible for providing accurate estimates of project cost on design and build tenders for both new build and refurbishment projects and will manage the submission of the tender to the client.
You'll be involved in receiving and assessing tender documents, identifying and managing risk, developing tender strategies, gain and use feedback from the construction team, value engineering, will prepare budget cost plans using historical data, negotiating projects, deal with clients/their representatives to better understand their needs, sending out and vetting subcontractor enquiries, preparing submission documents, build effective relationships with suppliers and follow up on tenders gaining appropriate feedback.
You will have worked as an Estimator (or as a QS who has priced work) previously for a building contractor and will ideally have experience of working on housing, apartments or building projects.
You will be able to price from first principles as well as using subcontract pricing.
They offer a great salary and benefits package and are open to flexible, family friendly working arrangements.
They are a forward thinking, multi award winning regional contractor who can provide a challenging and supportive work environment.
