We’ve hit 2022 and contractors are getting straight back into work. Whether it’s the risk of lockdowns or the cost of living in the big city, if you’re looking to get out of Auckland then this opportunity could be a great move for you. Working in the civil and infrastructure space this contractor is looking for an estimator to join their growing team.

Working around the region the company works on a variety of projects including water, structures, roads, earthworks and maintenance. A restructure of the business in 2021 has seen them strengthen their position in the Hawkes Bay market and the role of estimator will ensure that this continues into the future.

As estimator you will be part of the leadership team working closely with PM’s and Department Managers, strategically planning the workload ahead and leading the tenders and bids. You will be involved with creating method statements, risk assessments and tender programmes and documents whilst at the same time liaising with designers, clients and subcontractors where appropriate. There are already a number of large well established clients that you’ll continue to work with but you’ll also be involved with working with new clients to establish a broader workload. Your background can be varied but you must have experience working within the infrastructure, construction or related industry. Other desirable attributes include;

  • A degree or equivalent industry related qualification
  • A minimum of 5 years in a related sector with at least half in an estimating role
  • Experienced with estimating software such as Candy or similar
  • A proven track record of successfully winning projects
