Job Opportunities - Wellington
Based in Lower Hutt, Wellington, Maycroft provides a range of construction projects to the region. The company are currently seeking an energetic Estimator / Quantity Surveyor to lead the estimating / pre-construction process.
Estimating Manager - The role
This newly created leadership role is a critical position to enhance the growth of Maycroft. Reporting directly into the Commercial Manager you will need to have proven leadership capabilities and be able to inspire others. The challenge will be to pull together different parts of the business who do not report directly to you (you will have no direct reports) to effectively prepare tenders, negotiate new projects, onboard new clients and generally promote Maycroft as a builder of choice. You will work closely with the Future Works Manager and have an overall focus on bringing in projects in 2-3 years’ time. You will need to be adept at building trust and relationships.
Skills and Experience
You will need to come from an extensive commercial construction background with experience in both estimating and quantity surveying. You could have a background in either a main contractor or a PQS firm – ideally a mixture of both. You will need to be able to understand commercial construction projects and quickly be able to put an approximate cost on a clients ‘idea’. Although this is a leadership role, you will also need to be able to put together small tenders yourself.
You will be paid a healthy salary package commensurate with your skills and experience which will include either a vehicle or an allowance, a range of insurances, car parking and flexible working.
