Job Description

Façade and Glazing Solutions is delighted to partner with Elevation Recruitment Group in the recruitment of Estimators.

About us:

Originally founded in 1982 and acquired by Saint Gobain/Glassolutions in 1990, Façade and Glazing Solutions (FGS) is a specialist glazing contractor experienced in the design, installation, refurbishment and repair of building façades.

The organisation has recently undergone a period of change. Recognising the potential for creating a sustainable business with a long-term growth prospect, CoBe Capital* acquired the business and re-branded to FGS in August 2018.

We are now launching the next phase of our transformation, and we are looking to increase our “firepower” for our long-term growth journey by adding high calibre individuals to a range of core functions.

To support this, we are recruiting for Estimators to work in our Glazed Façade and Façade Cladding Teams. Full project values range between £1m-£50m.

The role:

The successful candidate will estimate the company leads for external curtain wall, window and vertical faced works for main contractors/architects.

You will be contributing to the enquiry selection process, producing tender information in line with requirements and ensuring relevant technical standards and Building Regulations are adhered to in the bid process.

As an Estimator you will liaise with bid teams, the supply chain and customers to ensure satisfactory delivery of suitable and up to date bids. You will assist the internal commercial and operational teams in building and servicing customer relationships.

Why FGS?

We create exciting technically complex façades and glazing solutions.

We have been involved with the most innovative and prestigious projects of national importance throughout the UK, such as the V&A museum in Dundee and the Hiscox building in York.

We have the resources and the expertise to deliver exceptional technical support for bespoke solutions to exceed clients’ expectations.

We aim to play a role in advancing the built environment and industry standards, through close collaboration with clients and construction partners.

We are safety-focused - our impeccable safety record delivers on high standards of care to both clients and their employees.
Employees have total support from senior managers.

The leadership team collaboratively develops realistic and attainable business plans.

The Person:

The successful candidate will have the following skills and experience:

• Working knowledge of the curtain wall, window and/or façade and cladding industries
• Proficiency in the use of relevant software packages
• Knowledge of major aluminium and glazing systems and product ranges
• The ability to carry out full take off
• Excellent communication skills working independently and as a team
• The ability to interpret technical and architectural drawings and specifications

What’s in it for you?

We provide development, coaching and positive leadership, encouraging employees to problem
solve and actively participate in the operation of the company.

We provide financial incentives and rewards for achieving goals.

We identify and invest heavily in key performers.

Join the Team:

FGS’s culture is evolving, and our ambition is to provide a culture where participation is integral to the success of the business.

Since our launch in August 2018 we have established a habitat for opportunity seekers.

If you feel FGS is the business for your next move or would like further information, please apply or contact Elevation Recruitment Group today.
