Together we inspire better ways of creating the places, communities, and businesses of tomorrow.  This is our purpose and as a multi-generational family business, Wates is totally committed to becoming a more diverse organisation where we look out for each other. A safe place in which everyone can be themselves.


We have an opportunity for an Estimator to join our Construction team, to effectively utilise skills, experience, and knowledge within a team environment to produce tenders which will win profitable work.


Wates Integrated Construction Services (WICS) can combine greater commerciality with an integrated approach across our supply chain - This replaces traditional Drylining procurement on some of Wates Construction’s projects, working with specialist sub-contractors to implement a tailored approach on a project-by-project basis. This in-house platform ensures we can deliver greater value.


Key Accountabilities include:


  • Ensure that all estimating processes and procedures are followed to deliver a submission following tender settlement
  • Work with surveyors in preparation of quantified schedule of rates and bill of quantities
  • Produce labour gangs through experience working with the Pre-Construction teams across the region.
  • Prepare tender summaries and estimating handovers and attend start-up pre-price and price meetings


We are looking for a qualified Estimator with Drylining experience in the Construction industry along with design, cost planning and bid management skills.


To be successful in the role you will have the ability to understand key project risks and opportunities and excellent communication and time management skills.


Apply today if you are looking for an opportunity in a rewarding and forward thinking business.
