Estimator - Permanent - 11768


About the Opportunity

LRO Staffing is working with an Ottawa based, family owned, civil engineering contractor in search of an Estimator to join their team. 

At nearly 30 years in business, the company has grown quickly in the last few years especially due to their relationships, reliability and ambitious family leadership - now in its second generation of management.

Working as a subcontractor for some of the biggest General Contractors in the area, their services focus on general groundworks and site preparation.

Duties include but are not limited to:

  • Read drawings
  • Do Take-offs
  • Use software like excel, bid-to win, and even possibly AutoCAD
  • Compile estimates & hit deadlines

The role can possibly evolve to include more direct involvement with clients and projects, but initially there is plenty of work to be priced!  Some contracts are cost plus, others are lump sum, but this will provide great experience to understand their business, help them grow and seize the opportunity for you to grow with the business.


About You

The successful candidate will have the following:

  • Minimum 2 years’ experience in pricing civils projects up to $500k - $1m in total value. This might be within an estimating role where pricing is your main focus, or possibly a project coordination or management role, assuming you took overall responsibility for pricing projects as well.


About the Job

Led by truly hard-working individuals, the team is driven to grow, but also has a great family business mentality.  If the work is getting done and targets are being hit, the atmosphere seems quite open, fun and flexible. There is support available with senior staff to help candidates get up to speed with their systems and processes, but ultimately the team needs a self-starter, with enough experience to hit the ground running. 

Salary is flexible, dependent on experience.
