I am currently recruiting for an M&E Estimator to join an exciting and rapidly growing company within the rail industry based in London. The main purpose of this role is to support the Pre-Construction team in providing a timely and professional estimating service across both Underground, Network Rail and Commercial projects.

Role responsibilities:

  • Responsible for compiling estimates, working out how much it will cost to provide the client with products or services.
  • Assessing materials, labour and equipment required and analysing different quotes from sub-contractors and suppliers.
  • Be able to work from a bill of quantities or just a set of drawings from the client.
  • Provide prices for everything from a one-off scheme to maintenance projects which will be completed over several years.
  • Ability to produce and author Bid deliverables including methodologies.
  • Combine site experience with quantity surveying skills, commercial acumen and a mind capable of financial analysis.
  • Get the best price that will win the contract in a competitive bidding situation, while ensuring that the contract can be carried out profitably. The best price isn't always the lowest one, clients now award contracts based on quality of the services offered, as well as cost. So when bidding for new works a quality submission is required along with the estimated price.
  • An appreciation of data confidentiality and be aware of things like price trends and regulations.
