70,000

100,000
Estimators wanted with RC frame & groundwork pricing ability

ABOUT THE COMPANY

Currently operating with a turnover around £200 million per annum, this privately owned specialist concrete frame & groundwork subcontractor builds packages ranging from £5 million up to £100 million each. Their client base is a mixture of residential and commercial developers and main contractors, with live projects secured with some of the top names in London.

I am watching this business go from strength to strength, reinvesting constantly, creating a stronger and stronger brand in the market. Clients are coming back for repeat works and new clients are knocking on their door because of the way they work and the reputation they have developed. Because of this they are attracting some of the best talent in the market, and with plans to grow further, options still exist for people to progress in their career into senior positions. They really are one to watch and one to speak with if you’re considering career options now.

Further details on this employer can be given upon request with company name being disclosed.

ABOUT THE ROLE

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 an experienced Estimator / Senior Estimator 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 £3m up to £30m each:

  • Preparation of Tender Submissions
  • Measuring and Take-Offs from drawings
  • Producing Bills-Of-Quantities
  • Cost Planning
  • Pre and Post Contract meetings with clients
  • Build-up of Tender Price from first principles based on plans, programme, and scope of works

REQUIREMENTS

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

 

REWARDS AND BENEFITS

Due to the level of this role and the experience needed, I am looking to target candidates currently earning anywhere from £70,000 to £100,000 per annum (£300 to £500 per day if self-employed).

 

Salaries/rates will be negotiable at the point of the 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 can be 10% to 20% of your annual salary.

About Cityscape Recruitment

Cityscape Recruitment is not like any other construction recruitment agency. Our business does not have a sales-driven environment, instead, we reward quality over quantity.

We use our specialist industry knowledge to help introduce and guide construction professionals into companies that best suit their desired career aspirations and personal goals. From Quantity Surveyors to Site Managers to Civil Engineers, we work to the same objective of helping to enhance their careers.

And our relationships don’t end on day one of a new role – we pride ourselves on our ability to build long-lasting relationships with both clients and construction professionals. And we are fortunate enough to work with many leading construction companies and professionals in London and throughout the rest of the UK.

What our clients say

We have worked with Alex Wallace and the Cityscape Recruitment team for a number of years now and find their service excellent.

They supply well matched and vetted candidates and very quickly understood all our requirements. They have always demonstrated good market knowledge and an ability to deliver to our requirements.

Commercial Director,
Main Contractor

I have used Cityscape Recruitment multiple times over the last 5 years. Very pleasant to deal with and all candidates put forward for interview are well suited to the position and well vetted by the team, so there is no time wasted with unsuitable applicants. I would highly recommend Cityscape. I intend to use them again in the future should any vacancies become available.

Operations Director,
Platt and Reilly Ltd

The Cityscape Recruitment team has always been great to deal with. Always ready to listen to our needs and requirements, a quality some recruiters do not appreciate or have, then advising where they can assist in our staff procurement. We look forward to working with Laura and Cityscape in the coming years.

When you first contact us, be that through direct contact, responding to an advert or applying through our website, we will connect you with a consultant who works in your specialist area. 

Initially, they will arrange a meeting to talk through your CV and career history. They will encourage you to go into detail about your background and experiences, capabilities and responsibilities, personal circumstances and any other factors they feel are relevant to help them build up a well-rounded profile of you. 

We take extraordinary care in matching professionals to an opportunity – one that will help enhance their careers and a clients’ team. We therefore also use this meeting to empower you in your career. Using our extensive knowledge of the construction industry, we would provide in-depth overviews of businesses, projects and available roles, and guidance on where your strengths will add the most value and career potential. 

After this meeting, the consultant will speak to a number of their clients about you and your CV. Who they speak to can be either jointly agreed upon or you can trust the judgement and expertise of the consultant to contact clients they feel are the best fit for your experience and goals.

If any clients are interested in meeting with you, the consultant will manage the interview process, coaching you before any interviews if required. (Further guidance can be found here.)

If you are successful in receiving an offer(s), our consultant will communicate this with you and help to negotiate the offer(s) and any other terms of employment. 

Finally, we will support you in resigning from your current role, navigating potential counter offers and starting your new role.
