  • Central London / West End
We have an opportunity for an Estimator to join our Wates Building Services division based onsite in Central London, to effectively utilise skills, experience and knowledge within a team environment to produce tenders which will win profitable work.



Wates Building Services (WBS) can combine greater commerciality with an integrated approach across our supply chain.



This replaces traditional M&E procurement on some of Wates Construction’s projects, working with specialist sub-contractors to implement a tailored approach on a project-by-project basis. This in-house platform complements our established external supply chain and with our specialist in-house WBS technical teams fully integrated with the Wates Construction team, we can deliver greater value.



Key Accountabilities include:




Ensure that all estimating processes and procedures are followed to deliver a submission following tender settlement
Work with surveyors in preparation of quantified schedule of rates and bill of quantities
Produce labour gangs through experience working with the Chief Estimator, Regional Estimators and Senior Estimators
Prepare tender summaries and attend start-up pre-price and price meetings




We are looking for a qualified Estimator with M&E experience in the Construction industry along with design, cost planning and bid management skills.



To be successful in the role you will have the ability to understand and use bid tactics and excellent communication skills.



Apply today if you are looking for an opportunity in a rewarding and forward thinking business.
