Senior Cost Planner / Senior Estimator - Infrastructure / Rail

Due to their extremely strong reputation and highly reputable brand, a leading Multi D Consultancy is seeking to attract a Senior Cost Planner to their high performing and close-knit Cost Planning team.

This opportunity exists because of ongoing growth with a number of national Infrastructure clients across Aviation, Rail, Highways, Water and Energy.

This role will have a strong emphasis on Rail. As a Senior, you will be empowered to take full ownership of either one or two significant high-profile projects, working with Rail owners, developers and operators. Their client list is numerous but includes TfL, Network Rail, Thames Water and HS2.

You will work under the leadership of a high performing individual who knows what it takes to progress in the company. He will take an active, albeit not overbearing, part in helping you achieve your professional goals. As he grows, so will you and he has identified this as a business critical hire with you being integral to achieving the team's growth targets.

Culturally, the organisation is fantastic. They are very welcoming, very trusting and very flexible. They offer work from home days, hot desking and flexi hours. There are numerous social events and you will be treated as an individual, not a number. You will be the one tailoring your career; they are there to support you.

Being at the forefront of the drive towards digitalisation, they will up-skill you in 5D BIM and dynamic cost modelling whilst also retaining the traditional techniques and looking to you to share these with more junior members of the team.

To be successful in this role, it is anticipated that:

-You hold significant experience in Infrastructure sector Cost Planning and Estimating

-You have a strong academic background and hold a Degree (or equivalent level) ideally in Quantity Surveying or comparable/related disciplines, i.e. engineering, business, maths or finance related. We would also consider individuals with non-cognate academics with the right skillset and experience

-You ideally be chartered or equivalent professional status (this is not essential)

-You have some experience in data analysis and use of cost planning software

A brief snap shot of the day to day:

-You will act as the Cost Planning / Estimating Lead and work with Project Manager, Designers, Suppliers, Planners, Risk and Value Managers, Client contacts plus others in multi-disciplinary teams to achieve the best outcomes

-You will make a leading contribution to improving the quality and performance of Cost Planning and Estimating on a continuous basis
