Growing specialist subcontractor requires skilled Estimator/ QS

Your new company
I'm working closely with a respected specialist contractor providing passive fire protection services who are looking to appoint an experienced estimator/ surveyor to their team as enquiries rise and the business continues to grow. Services include building surveys and recommendation reports, the supply and application of intumescent coatings, installation of fireboard casings, fitting of fire doors and a suite of other services aimed at minimising building damage and saving lives.

Your new role
Working closely with the company directors, you will be an instrumental part of the team surveying properties, producing estimates, handling tender bid enquiries and submissions, negotiating with clients and suppliers and managing the financial aspects of live projects of up to £250k through to final account

What you'll need to succeed
Ideally, you will have a tertiary qualification in a relevant subject, be IT literate, be thoroughly familiar with the main JCT forms of contract (NEC experience would also be of benefit) and have the drive and determination to help the directors grow the business in what is an extremely buoyant market for fire protection services.

What you'll get in return
The real benefit to this role is the freedom and flexibility you will have to manage the estimating and surveying functions of the business. You'll be joining a small and committed team who all frequently 'muck in' to do whatever is required to deliver a job to their clients' satisfaction and to meet deadlines- you'll certainly not feel 'boxed-in' in this varied and challenging role. You'll also receive a competitive salary, on site-parking, fuel allowance and other benefits.
