We are currently seeking a Trainee within our Pre Construction team for Estimating/Cost planning.
Joining Telford Homes as a Trainee Estimator within the Pre-Construction department will enable you to become an effective leader of the future. As a trainee within the Pre-Con department, your time will be mainly at the Head Office in Waltham Cross with occasional site visits to potential new sites. You will participate in a structured training program internally and be assigned a dedicated Estimating mentor for the duration of your programme. Your programme will be either 2 years, or 5 years dependant on whether or not you have already attained a construction related degree or equivalent level 6 qualification, Telford Homes will support you on the relevant educational pathway whilst you study. Usually Estimators study a Quantity Surveying degree due to the nature and similarities of the two roles.
An Estimators responsibilities consist of (but are not limited to) pricing the cost of a build prior to the business purchasing a piece of land – this information, combined with the other Pre-Construction department research, helps the business to understand if a piece of land is feasible and worth considering for purchase. Within the Pre-Construction department generally, short and sometimes tight deadlines are imposed due to the nature of the role and so candidates should be naturally responsive, diligent and thorough in their work.
During your time with Telford Homes, you will develop your skills, knowledge and behaviour setting you up to step into the role of Estimator at the end of your training programme. You will be encouraged to gain a relevant professional accreditation during this time if you wish, and Telford Homes will support your efforts to do so. You will take part in a carefully planned departmental rotation around the Operation over the course of several months. Working in other areas of the business will provide an understanding of how our business works and how your future role as an Estimator will eventually fit in with the wider organisation.
