Avonside Roofing
  • Location: Braintree

  • Type: Roofing

  • Hours: Full-time

  • Closing: 23/07/2021

As the UK’s largest building envelope service provider, we are in an exciting time in the company’s growth and development.

Our services span Roofing, Plumbing and Heating, and Energy, including Renewables, primarily into the new build housing sector.

Whilst you won’t often see our name, you will see our work and craftsmanship on many of the new properties that are being built and we pride ourselves on providing high-quality work, excellent customer service, and that small company, local touch but with the backing of a large national player.

This provides us with the opportunity to recruit and develop individuals who are looking for a solid career in the Construction sector but who need the support and training to get started – whether this is as a career change, return to work after a period of time away or as a first venture into work.

About the Role

We are looking to appoint a Trainee Estimator in our Braintree branch. The role will involve looking at technical drawings and using them to develop quotes and estimates to support our commercial teams in developing our new business – a real opportunity to help us win new contracts and drive the business forward.

Required Skills and Experience

  • Previous office based experience
  • A great understanding of Excel and Word
  • A minimum of GCSE A to C (or equivalent qualification/knowledge)
  • An aptitude and desire to learn
  • Any previous experience within the construction industry or with technical drawings / CAD drawing would be an advantage but not essential.

Benefits of the Role

We look forward to providing full training and development to the successful candidate.
