The client I am recruiting for is an ever-growing Civil Engineering and utility contractor who is turning over £100M and has been trading since the late 90’s. During the last 5 years, they have gone from strength to strength, and they have seen the company double in size. My client specialises in the power, telecoms, and multi-utility sector and has forward-thinking plans to expand into other areas of Civil Engineering. 

About the opportunity 

Due to ongoing growth and lots of tenders my client is now looking for an Estimator to join their Pre-Construction team. They are looking for somebody who is interested in a long-term opportunity and willing to progress their career.

You’ll be required to have a good standard of education preferably to Foundation Degree level (HND,HNC) in a Construction, Civils, Business or equivalent qualification.

It is important to have experience working within civil engineering as an Estimator, ideally within the utility industry, and to show good stability at the companies you have worked for.
