The Opportunity

£70-90k
A great opportunity for a talented and ambitious Utilities–focused Senior Estimator to join the large bidding group of a Tier 1 UK Infrastructure Services Provider and benefit from highly stimulating work, tailored training and a progressive career path.  
Amey, a leading consulting and infrastructure support services provider with nearly 20,000 employees is behind the public services used every day – from roads, railways and schools to waste, airports, water and energy. As a key member of our very successful, 50+ staff Commercial & Estimating Group, you’ll provide critical pre-contract support and subject matter expertise across our high-profile Utilities bids (Power, Water and Communications).
You’ll lead the estimating process on specific large bids; prepare high quality detailed tenders and estimates; price from first principles; assist with pricing strategy and tender review processes; develop a library of outputs and pricing data; review tenders to identify lessons learnt, participate in the detailed risk assessment process on bids and support, mentor and train junior colleagues.

Why you should consider this role

  • Amey is a large, diverse and fast-evolving organisation. In addition to a strong track record of successfully bidding for traditional high-profile Utilities contracts, we’re also heavily involved in leading-edge UK projects including 5G, EV Charging and Waste-to-Power
  • The scale of the Group ensures continual challenge, plenty of learning opportunities and career progression (i.e. Principal Estimator, Commercial Management or leadership options)
  • You’ll join a very talented team with a strong collaborative culture and an acute focus on training & development which is highly tailored to the individual
  • Ample opportunity to deepen specialist sector experience or at a future point work more widely across Amey’s other key sectors
  • You can be proud to be part of an organisation that’s focused on building, maintaining and investing in the UK’s services and infrastructure; creating better places for everyone

What are we looking for?

  • Senior Estimator with Utilities sector bidding experience with a Tier 1 or Tier 2 Service Provider. A Subject Matter Expert who has independently priced from first principles on large-scale, high value/quality tender submissions
  • Degree in a relevant engineering/commercial discipline or qualified by experience
  • Commercially aware, self-motivated, proactive, highly numerate and analytical
  • Excellent written and verbal communication skills – able to adapt to varied stakeholders
  • Flexible to travel widely across the UK as per the varying bid team locations
  • Strong Excel/Word. Knowledge of proprietary estimating systems would be useful

Amey’s main offices are in Liverpool, Birmingham, Oxfordshire & London. Candidate proximity to one of these locations could be useful but we’ll consider candidates residing in a range of areas across the UK.
