We have a great opportunity for an experienced Estimator to join our NHS Healthcare Maintenance team, working pre-contract to ensure we provide best value to our Clients during the bid process. Our NHS Maintenance division provides hard facilities management services to clients across acute care, ambulance services, mental health, outpatient and inpatient facilities - helping the NHS to ensure a service that is fit for the future.
Rydon has a rich history working across healthcare, education and housing. For over 40 years, we've recruited talented and innovative people to maintain homes, schools, hospitals, student accommodation and more. We combine a personal touch with outstanding technical expertise to deliver award-winning, quality facilities for local communities with a commitment from people who are passionate about what they do.
We have an excellent opportunity for an experienced Estimator to join our Dartford based Healthcare Maintenance team. As one of the UK's leading providers of planned and preventative maintenance services to the NHS, this challenging role will work as part of our pre-contract team to help us continue to develop cost effective solutions for our NHS Clients. As we work across hospital/acute care, ambulance services, mental health, community services and other outpatient services, the role offers a truly diverse range of schemes and as such, no two days are the same. We are seeking an experienced estimator who has previous experience costing planned/preventative maintenance solutions in areas such as mechanical and electrical, building fabric and minor works contracts. This is a challenging role, and demand for our NHS hard facilities management services has grown substantially over the last 5 years. This is therefore a newly created position to enable us to continue to deliver timely, competitive responses.
Other key duties include; liaising with contractors and suppliers for costings to be added into the bid, modelling and maintaining various estimating databases to produce timely and effective cost solutions, maintaining and using asset information within the estimating database, assist as part of the mobilisation team handing over from sales to operations team ensuring that pre-contract agreements translate into the service provision, and developing proposal documents to include the prepared estimates.
This is a varied role with excellent opportunities for personal growth and development.
