Support the commercial management of projects, ensuring value for money.
Team Collaboration:
Work closely with the existing Estimating team, including two other estimators.
Engage with suppliers to negotiate and secure the best deals.

Communicate effectively with clients to understand their needs and provide accurate estimates.

Strong background in Mechanical and Electrical (M&E) work.
Experience in reactive maintenance and small construction projects.

Excellent estimating skills with the ability to price projects quickly and accurately.
Competence in Quantity Surveying duties, including cost management and BoQ preparation.
Strong organizational and time management skills to handle fast-paced environments.

Strong electrical bias is preferred.
Excellent communication and interpersonal skills.
Ability to work independently and as part of a team.
Flexible and adaptable, with a proactive approach to problem-solving.
We prioritize candidate profiles and personality over specific work history. We seek individuals who are motivated, detail-oriented, and thrive in dynamic environments.

Competitive salary based on experience.
Opportunities for career development and progression.
Supportive team environment with a focus on collaboration and innovation.
