About the Opportunity

If you’re an experienced roofing estimator looking for a rewarding, personable, flexible, and results-based environment that can offer genuine room for progression, look no further.

Our client is a pitched and flat roofing contractor established from humble beginnings in 2005, who have since grown to be a reputable delivery partner for developers, commercial property managers, consultancies, various public and private institutions and beyond. They have built up a great reputation to date for delivering on various large and complex projects and their capabilities continue growing as they do.

Although still a medium sized team, they are high-performers who work hard and have fun doing it. They have thrived from empowering their staff to deliver to the best of their ability and providing them the autonomy to manage their own workloads accordingly.  If you’re someone who understands how to effectively estimate projects typically circa 200 square (20,000sqft) in a variety of roofing systems, but are looking for an environment where you’ll be trusted to do your job flexibly and provided opportunities to continue in your professional growth and development, this is a rare opportunity to have your cake and eat it too!

  • Performing Quantity take-offs based on architectural drawings
  • Building out pricing for a project by understanding first principles (material, labour, time) and strategizing with members of leadership to submit accurate, competitive and still profitable pricing
  • Reviewing forensic analysis of previously priced projects to compare actual costs and overall financial performance
  • Prospecting new leads and building relationships to access new sources for RFQ/RFPs

  • Practical or theoretical knowledge of various roofing systems, particularly modbit, PVC, TPO and other common flat roofing applications; i.e: engineering or architectural degree/diploma or practical experience managing relevant projects
  • Previous experience in estimating relevant roofing projects
  • A strong acumen for math, finance, and planning resources and schedules
  • A good practical understanding of the process for delivering relevant projects
