About the role

Having delivered on a number of successful projects for their clients lately, this well-known and respected local Commercial Contractor is being offered opportunities to price lots of work for both existing and new clients and is looking for another Estimator to help with this workload. Supporting a Senior you will be here to analyze new business opportunities, estimate and price various project types from housing to multi-level commercial, and then either assist with producing the tender documents or help negotiate with your clients to grow their project pipeline.
Skills & experience

While experience purely as an estimator isn’t required, you’ll need to have had some exposure to it in the past, and ideally have a preference for it. Naturally, this means you’ll be either a qualified or otherwise experienced Quantity Surveyor looking to take on an opportunity with a real future in Wellington. You will have an eye for detail, be naturally inquisitive, and have the drive for constant improvement and growth. With all of this being software-based, you’ll be IT savvy and able to pick up new software quickly and easily.

About the company

This is a medium-size, yet still nimble, employee owned Main Contractor who has past successes on projects up to $50M and has priced much larger than that too. But having found their niche, in a risk profile they are very familiar and comfortable with, and now delivering super successfully in that niche – they are finding opportunities seemingly endless and therefore driving lots growth. These projects are a mixture of multi-unit housing, medium-rise commercial, and some remediation work for trusted clients. Employing a large force of their own labour allows them much greater control over their projects and you much greater control over your pricing and timing.


People enjoy working here because it is a culture full of support and development. Almost never recruiting anything remotely senior – they much prefer to train and develop their existing team to become better and more valuable at what they do, for more than their own gain too.

  • Highly competitive salary – depending on experience
  • Phone and Laptop Provided
  • Work under an estimating veteran to grow and achieve your goals
  • Office-based position
