Senior Designer Estimator
A leading international geotechnical contractor is presently looking to appoint a proven design and estimating professional with specific experience of rotary bored piling.
Reporting to the UK Pre-Construction Manager, the successful candidate will cover all aspects of regional work-winning activities, with a certain level of autonomy in respect to pile design, tendering and technical sales. There will be a predominant focus on rotary bored piling but this will overlap with other disciplines such as CFA piling and retaining walls.
Working for a highly regarded specialist, this senior appointment will be pivotal to the development of the South East region and will offer a great deal of diversity through encompassing design, estimating, technical sales and follow up in a demanding yet extremely challenging environment. There will also be a need for strong liaison with other regions for sales intelligence, pricing levels and R&D purposes.
The successful candidate will manage all incoming piling enquiries, assessment of opportunities and allocation of tenders and designs. This will involve a good deal of client interaction and negotiation to the point where orders are secured, beyond which ongoing support will be provided throughout the project lifecycle if and where required.
There will on occasion be a requirement to provide support with site issues including contract redesigns, rectification of design issues and liaising with external approving authorities and engineers. The role will report to the Area Manager and is intended to deliver effective control of the technical and estimating elements of the rotary bored discipline, ensuring compliance with the company management system and in line with business strategy.
