Full job description

Your new company
A commercial builder with a growing reputation, they’re expanding on the Sunshine Coast and this is your chance to join them. They embody a strong work culture with a winning mentality and have all the tools and resources to bring the best out of you. Moreover, you will be joining a well-regarded team, who encourage a healthy work life balance.

Your new role
Working closely with the head estimator you will take responsibility for the full tender process on a wide variety of commercial projects, both in the open tender market and for negotiated contracts with preferential clients. You will be well regarded for your strong skills in measuring trade packages associated with commercial construction, to completing quantity take offs and compiling bills of quantities. Value engineering and cost planning will also play part in this role, with career development on offer to become that true Senior Estimator should you so desire it.

What you'll need to succeed
To be considered for this role you must have proven experience estimating in commercial construction for a commercial builder. Whether you have learnt the art of measuring for a builder as a QS in a PQS firm, or progressed with a trade qualification, proven experience in Estimating is essential. A working knowledge of Buildsoft Cubit will be highly regarded, while a tertiary qualification such as a degree in Quantity Surveying or Construction Management would be beneficial.

What you'll get in return
The chance to work with a forward-thinking builder working on tenders that will likely range from $1M to $20M, with public or private sector clients. You could be providing a cost plan for a school extension one day, to submitting a hard dollar tender on a unit development the next. Career progression will also be on offer, along with a great working atmosphere, with a nice new office on the Sunshine Coast. Last but not least a competitive salary package is on offer commensurate with experience. Senior Estimators are also encouraged to applied so a range of anything from $110k base to $180k package is a good indicator, maybe more for the right person.
