Great prospects for an astute, experienced Estimator who can produce a top notch competitive prime cost for construction or services engineering tenders, and be part of an energetic, customer-focused sales team.

What is the role?

In this newly created role you will work with the Managing Director on generating tenders for both building construction and services engineering contracts, across all sectors. You will be responsible for ensuring that tenders are accurate, clearly detailed, competitive and returned within deadlines, and for providing clearly identified prime cost build-ups to the Operations team.

Over the past year we have quadrupled the scale of the contracts we undertake, with our typical top project value going from £500K, to around £2m. We’re going to need a lot more where that came from to meet our ambitious targets, so we’re looking to you to maintain good relationships with prospective customers and professionals to promote further tender invitations.

Who are we looking for?

This is a job for a professional with a good record of faultless estimating across a range of contract types including plan and specification, open book and design and build. It goes without saying that you will have a thorough knowledge of the construction and building services sectors and associated supply chains, as well as great analytical skills. This may have been gained with a large main contractor or a smaller company but either way you’ll be looking for an opportunity to make your skills and experience really count.

Absolutely crucial is that you are ready to step up to the mark as a key player in sales and operations, willing to shoulder responsibility individually and as part of a team.

Why apply?

Whitescape is a dynamic, entrepreneurial group structured to grow rapidly while staying close to its customers. It’s a scenario where individual talent is the source of our success and we have set up our business to attract, develop and reward that talent.

This role will put you in a position to make a substantial impact on Whitescape’s new business achievements and our turnover and profit growth. You will a key member of a team pursuing a common goal to succeed and progress.
