Are you an Assistant or Trainee Estimator interesting in joining a successful work winning team? We are working with a contractor who have secured a place on a coveted long term civil infrastructure framework who are looking for the newest member of their estimating team in the South Lanarkshire area.

To compliment the balance of the current team, they are looking to bring in an Estimator with some experience in pricing works in the civil infrastructure market but looking to continue their career development. Led by a Senior Estimator and Technical Manager, there will be plenty of hands on, experience based learning available, so this role may suit Estimators who are looking to work in a more supportive environment and gain from the years of experience their team brings.

Some of the duties and responsibilities involved will include;

Tender analysis
Take - off of principal quantities from design drawings
Material take - offs from bills of quantities
Input/management of Causeway system
Production of required documentation for tender submission in line with company standards

To apply for the role you should ideally hold a degree level qualification in Quantity Surveying or Civil Engineering. However, applicants with lesser or no formal qualifications but proven workplace experience in civils estimating will also be welcome to apply.

It is essential that you have some experience, perhaps just 3-4 years working in civil engineering contractor in an estimating capacity, ideally full time. However, we would also be happy to hear from Site Engineers with direct experience in estimating who are interested in making a full time switch.
