The investment by the UK government into the rail network continues to increase and opportunities with our client come with that investment. If you are an Estimator from a rail, civils or construction background looking for a new and exciting opportunity in a thriving billion-pound organisation with a healthy pipeline of projects coupled with an outstanding tender success ratio, then this will be for you!
The variety in this role is endless! Working mainly on long term framework agreements that can have anywhere up to 60 live jobs across the Southern part of the UK running concurrently.
The works mainly consist of building repair works, platform resurfacings, signal box refurbishments, canopy repairs and Mechanical and Electrical jobs including lighting.
This role will be on a high volume, low value framework which will require you to actively overcome challenges. As the work is high volume there will be an expectation to complete assigned tasks competently, but at speed.
The work is largely civil engineering including grit lasting, bridges and platform refurbishments and some building works. The building element is likely to include things such as level crossing repairs as well as other minor works.
You will need to take instruction from the commercial team and their assistants and create accurate cost value reports for the senior commercial team and the end client.
