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?

In this role you’ll be developing major investment projects within our Street Lighting Division with both existing contracts, and with new customers. This includes being involved in analysing and assimilating technical specifications and designs for contracts of varying size and 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 also be involved in prioritising and managing your own work load, maintaining accurate records of tenders submitted and 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 understand and interpret customer requirements from a suite of tender documents to prepare Schedule of Rates, “take off” quantities from drawings or bill of quantities and have a good understanding of technical drawings. You’ll also have previous experience in an estimating role with a street lighting or highways contractor, combined with a strong understanding of construction contracts.  

Finally, you’ll 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.

Due to the requirement to drive between sites on occasion, a valid UK driver’s license would be essential for this role.
