Estimator / Senior Estimator

Reinforced Concrete (RC) Frame Contractor – One of the very biggest and best!

 

About the Employer – Central London Based:

Having been established for over 30 years within the specialist field of concrete frames and groundworks, this business is, without doubt, one of the leading names within this field (literally top 3 name in my opinion). Current turnover is over £150m per annum and they have consistently worked at the cutting edge of the sector to be one of the best at what they do. They currently complete packages ranging in value from £10m up to £100m each on a mixture of residential, commercial, educational, and leisure projects throughout the London area and further around the UK.

This business prides itself on its high repeat business rate and its in-house capability to take complex projects from design through to completion. I would highly recommend this business as a polished environment where individuals can grow and flourish working on some of the best and most iconic projects in and around London and it is worth pointing out, that I have never had anyone leave this business in a short period of time that I have placed there.

This company really does thrive from maintaining relationships both internally and with everyone they work with.

  • Preparation of tender submissions

For this opportunity, I am looking for individuals who have previous experience working for RC / Concrete Frame and Groundwork subcontractors in the UK in an estimating capacity.

That is it. I’m happy to talk to anyone who has the above.

With the basic salary, our client offers the usual package of car allowance, pension, bonuses, and similar on a PAYE basis.

 

How to Apply:

I am more than happy to discuss this opportunity with people over the phone or face to face in a fully confidential manner. This is an incestuous sector and I fully understand the importance of keeping things discrete.

Alternatively, it would be ideal to see a copy of your CV to understand your previous experience and employment. In line with GDPR, nothing will be done with your CV / details until we have discussed the role in detail anyway, but having gained an understanding of your formal past, this may help when we come to talk and discuss the option.

About Me, Your Consultant:

My name is Andrew Jackson and I am one of the founding directors of Cityscape Recruitment Ltd. I have over 17 years of experience in civil engineering & construction recruitment, during which time, I have specialised in the niche sectors of concrete frames, groundworks, basement construction, and demolition.

So, what does that mean for you? It means you won’t be trusting your career to a rookie salesperson who’s just out to place you wherever he/she can. I work with the vast majority of the groundwork & concrete frame businesses in the UK and I can help not only introduce you but can give you up-to-date information on each of them (the good parts and the less positive parts – none of them are perfect, but some are pretty close), helping you make an informed decision so you can take your career forward. I’ve been doing this for a fair while now and I’ve maintained a positive reputation doing what I do because I don’t tell people false truths. I tell them everything I know and then let them choose. My job is to get you the options you want, give you the information you need, and then let you decide what feels right for you.
