  • Carry out adjustments to tenders and complete tender documentation for submission by the due date.
  • Provide support to other estimators in pricing tenders and providing budget costing.

To be successful in the role you will possess the following skills and attributes:

  • Previous experience of working as an Estimator for a main contractor preferred but not essential.

  • Commercial awareness
