Job Description

The Intro
It is an unprecedented time we find ourselves in right now, with a lot of uncertainty. However, the infrastructure and construction industry remains open for business, and the pipeline of work remains strong over coming years. Whilst some companies have put a freeze on hiring, other companies remain committed to bringing top talent into their businesses. Such is the case with the position below. The company are well established with a strong reputation, and in a solid financial position.
The company
You will be working with a growing Victorian based civil contractor, who have been in operation for over 20 years, working for both private and public sector clients. A family owned business, they take pride not only in their work, but also in looking after their people and providing a great environment for people to work. They are a respected player in the Victorian market and as such have seen strong growth as the industry has grown in recent years.
The role
Due to the growth of the business and workload, they are now in search of a Senior Estimator to join their team, based in the western suburbs of Melbourne. You will be tendering for projects both as head contractor and also as subcontractor on major projects for tier one contractors. You will work across a spectrum of market sectors including major road and rail projects, local govt. infrastructure, water, civil for commercial, civil structures, and earthworks.
The role will see you work closely with senior management in assessing and selecting projects to tender, and managing the full project estimation process. You will liaise with the delivery team regarding construction methodologies in order to put the best and most competitive solutions to clients, and the role may require you to conduct site visits from time to time.
About you
To be successful you will be a degree qualified civil engineer (or similar), with at least 8 years’ experience in civil construction. You will have experience in at least one (but preferably multiple) of the transport infrastructure, water, civil structures or earthworks sectors. This role is ideally suited to a seasoned estimator, with the ability to run the full tender process from first principles through to completion. Ideally you will have a strong understanding of Expert Estimation.
Tier 3 experience will be highly regarded, however if you are currently in the tier one or two sector and are looking to make a change, you will still be strongly considered if you have solid estimating experience in the sectors mentioned above and an understanding of Expert Estimation.
You will have a strong work ethic and a desire to achieve strong outcomes for the business, which will lead to personal reward. You will be strong communicator (both verbally and written) and have well developed time management skills.
What's in it for you?
Of course, you will be rewarded with a strong salary package (which has been designed to attract top talent) but what you'll really love is the  opportunity to join a growing company with a strong history, great reputation, solid pipeline with established clients, and a close knit team. This opportunity has genuine opportunity for growth as the company continues to build.
