My client, a well-known local contractor based in Norwich is currently recruiting for an experienced Estimator to join the company and work with their current Estimating team, working on projects up to £5 million usually.

This is an excellent opportunity to join this company as they pride themselves in their work; with over 100 years trading in the industry they have built an excellent reputation and have continually delivered varied and challenging projects on time and within budget.

This contractor also has a personal approach to its employees, the company provides a friendly and financially secure work environment and prides itself on keeping their staff turnover to a minimum. You will be reporting directly to the Commercial Director working predominantly independently on your own project alongside their other members of the Estimating division.

The company is 'Investors in People' accredited with a strong emphasis on staff development, they provide a strong mentoring programme and there is realistic progression to senior and management level roles. Our client operates across a range of construction projects within the commercial, education, healthcare, residential and leisure sectors across new build, extension and refurbishment. The company works predominantly within Norfolk from their office in Norwich.
