About the Department

SSE Enterprise Contracting is one of the UK's largest Mechanical and Electrical (M&E) contractors with a product/service portfolio ranging from M&E LV, HV, Instrumentation, Street Lighting, Facilities Management through to Combined Heat and Power solutions.

What is the Role?

Working as an Electrical Estimator, based from our Leeds office, you'll develop cost models/plans, submit accurate estimates and manage bids for design and build projects, including large and more complex major schemes ensuring that all client requirements and technical issues are fully considered. You'll also hold responsibility for option appraisals and identifying and applying alternative solutions to enhance bid profitability and the delivery of value engineering. This will extend to preparing accurate estimates of net costs for contract tender bids and ensuring completion to schedule in accordance with client requirements.

You'll prioritise and manage your own workload, maintain accurate records of tenders submitted while interfacing with our Estimating Manager, Procurement team and Operations Team. This will be completed with the objective of delivering supplier coordination to ensure accuracy, best value and competitiveness of estimate and accommodation of the supply chain critical path.

What Do I Need?

To be successful in this role, you'll have the ability to prepare Schedule of Rates, "take off" quantities from drawings or bill of quantities and have previous experience within an electrical environment.

Finally, you'll have completed a craft apprenticeship and developed competence to the level of BTEC or equivalent technical training. You'll also have strong commercial and business awareness to enable you to identify and recommend appropriate bid proposals that meet client needs as well as promote the Company's interests. Therefore, you must be highly motivated and accurate, as attention to detail is vital, as is excellent Maths and IT skills.
