Estimator/Surveyor required for established specialist main contractor, Somerset

Your new company
Our client is a respected local contractor who have been providing clients with a high level of service for over 40 years across the south-west. Services include new build, extension, renovation and maintenance of commercial and domestic projects up to £2m in value. They have a philosophy of working closely with their customers and guiding them through the build process, rather than taking a more contractual stance to projects.

Your new role
As a result of increased workload and imminent retirement of existing staff, they are now looking to take on a competent and organised commercial professional to join the team and contribute to the estimating and quantity surveying functions, to further develop the business in a sustainable, profitable manner. Duties include pricing projects, subcontract negotiation and management, producing variations, submitting valuations and final accounts.

What you'll need to succeed
You will be a strong team player with a sharp commercial mind, but with the ability to deal with customers in an empathetic way, rather than being overly contractual. Our client has developed some excellent long-term relationships with their client base and their philosophy is to deliver the best product at the best value, rather than taking an excessively contractual approach to business. Just as important is to maintain the good will and trust with their subcontractors. Ideally, you'll also have experience using Causeway estimating software.

What you'll get in return
Our client is able to offer long-term commitment - many of their staff have been with the business for over 20 years - and the opportunity to work on a wide range of challenging and stimulating building projects, meaning no one day will ever be the same. They are also offering a competitive salary and package, negotiable dependent on experience and skills fit.
