Description

There are good Estimators and then there are those that are exceptional. The exceptional Estimators are confident, they build the projects in 3D in their minds and they back up facts with an intuitive gut instinct that gives them a competitive edge. If you want to be in an environment where this experience will be respected – where your opinion will always be valued then this could be a career defining opportunity.

Qualifications

The Company are a boutique multi award winning building contractor with a fantastic history of success and a very low turnover of staff. They specialise in extremely challenging technically difficult commercial construction projects in the $0.5M – $50M range, for private and public sector clients.

They build fit out and refurbishment projects mostly with complicated services and often with considerable structural elements, in addition, to new build construction projects which tend to be unusual, one off projects. A lot of the projects are in occupied buildings for high profile clients who have elevated expectations.

THE SKILLS & ATTRIBUTES REQUIRED:

  • A track record of success as a Senior Estimator working on both hard dollar and negotiated tenders
  • Ability to do preliminary pricing plans and come up with strategies for small projects
  • Able to come up with value management solutions
  • Enjoys mentoring, training and developing in a team environment (the team will include other Estimators, a Business Development Manager, Cadets and a Systems Manager)
  • Ability to add strategic technical input into projects
  • A motivated winning mindset
  • Naturally competitive
  • Procurement experience
  • Whilst programming and methodology are not required a basic understanding of the risks associated is essential
  • Ideally an Estimator who has been successful in the tier three or second tier space

The nature of the projects means that there is always going to be an element of re-designing. The considerable time effort and skill that has gone into re-designing previous opportunities has been instrumental in this Company winning several flagship projects. They have built a reputation as a boutique builder who are self-assured enough to go for the ‘showcase’ one off projects traditionally won by larger builders. Not only have they confidently won these projects but they have delivered them with aplomb.

One of the most appealing things about working for this Builder is that they will truly give you ownership of your work while offering a supportive environment. If employed you will be employed because of your experience, your reputation and the considerable value that you will add to the organisation.

There are good Estimators and then there are those that are exceptional. The exceptional Estimators are confident, they build the projects in 3D in their minds and they back up facts with an intuitive gut instinct that gives them a competitive edge. If you want to be in an environment where this experience will be respected – where your opinion will always be valued then this could be a career defining opportunity.

This position is open to candidates who are already working as an Estimating Manager or are currently a Senior Estimator looking for the next step.
