Intermediate and Senior Estimators (Civil, Track, Building, and M&E), Transport Infrastructure – Permanent – 2433

About the Opportunity

We’re currently assisting one of the country’s largest infrastructure builders in recruiting an entire team of Estimators and Senior Estimators to their group. Along with their JV partners, they’ve won the bid to deliver one of Ontario’s largest ever transport infrastructure projects. It’s a massive undertaking with about $2b of associated station, rail, M&E and civils to now price out for the next 2 years before work kicks off on site.

They’re offering competitive salaries, guaranteed 15% bonuses throughout the duration, and a host of other comprehensive benefits you might expect from a leading organization.

More importantly, they’ve recognized that while this is a landmark project for anyone to have on their CV, most still prefer that the roles be permanent and flexible hires and they’ve gone to great lengths to make sure that is the case. Although based out of the site office in Toronto, this team will be very much part of the wider business, meaning there is room for progression, flexibility and even mobility between projects if needed – although this will be an exciting landmark project to see through
