The Opportunity:

Due to an ongoing strong workload and a member of the existing team moving away, our client is looking to strengthen their existing estimating department by adding two experienced Estimators / Senior Estimators to the ranks.

This role will involve the usual duties such as putting together tenders for large concrete frame packages in and around London for commercial and residential schemes. Usual package values range from £5m up to £100m each

For this role you must have:

  • Previous experience working for a Reinforced Concrete Frame or Groundwork subcontractor
  • Knowledge of pricing RC Frame and / or Groundwork packages
  • A steady background showing longevity with individual contractors
  • A minimum of 5 years’ experience in this role

Potential Salary / Remuneration:

Due to the level of this role and the experience needed I am looking to target candidates currently earning anywhere from £70,000 to £120,000 per annum (self-employed rates available).

Salaries / rates will be negotiable at the point of interview depending on the level of experience.

With the basic salary our client offers the usual package of car allowance and benefits plus they offer an annual bonus which is guaranteed at 10% and does go above for the top performers!

And with all of the above in mind, it’s worth reiterating, as well as a great package, you’ll be working for one of (if not the) best RC frame contractor in the UK.
