As a boutique family business based in Newbridge, Edinburgh, we collaborate with architects to design and supply state-of-the-art steel gratings and louvres for wall cladding, screening, balustrading, and fencing.

The Position: Sales Estimator – Graduate Position 

Are you a driven individual with a knack for blending technical and commercial knowledge? Do you possess excellent communication skills and the ambition to ascend in your career? If so, we offer a permanent position with abundant opportunities for professional growth as our Sales Estimator.

In this role, you’ll be diving into a sea of exhilarating responsibilities, from handling inquiries from architects to providing technical information and advising on design development to estimating from tender documents. You’ll be in the driver’s seat, negotiating and liaising with customers, suppliers, and contractors, racing to secure contracts in a complex and fast-paced environment.

You will thrive in this position if you love challenges, have a powerful drive for self-motivation, and enjoy juggling multiple tasks while working under pressure.

Key Responsibilities:

  • Securing contracts by quoting prices and lead times in harmony with suppliers
  • Offering product and technical information in response to telephone enquiries
  • Recording and tracking live enquiries
  • Cultivating relationships with customers
  • Maintaining close communication with suppliers

Required Qualifications:

  • Excellent telephone manners and clear communication
  • Ability to read and understand architectural drawings and technical specifications
  • Proficiency in Windows software (Outlook, Word, Excel)
  • Ability to operate a CRM database and basic CAD
  • Clean driving licence

While this role is primarily office-based, be prepared for exciting excursions as you may need to visit architects and sites across the UK.
Our firm may be anchored in Edinburgh, but our reach is far and wide, covering the entire UK and Ireland, with a significant presence in London.
