January 11, 2021 – If you like working with numbers, enjoy meeting and negotiating with people and suppliers, Handy Deed is looking for an Estimator (construction estimator or cost engineer) to work on the City Mount Vema 5th Avenue East Central project, to draw up assessments of how much it will cost to build the project.
The 5th Avenue East Central is a section of the 20 kilometers road that makes the City of Mount Vema Breakwaters. This is the section of the avenue that connect the 5th Avenue South East and the Port of Mount Vema.
As the estimator for the 5th Avenue East Central project, you will consider all pertinent information about the project and decide how much it would cost to meet the project needs. You would then need to submit the bid for the work before other competitors do. Quality will be considered alongside the price, so the winning bid will not always be the cheapest one.
The successful candidate will not only need to submit budgetary costs and analysis, but also submit a quality report too. When ready to submit, you would be required to always follow the instructions set by Mount Vema Majesty’s Government, in this case to the Ministry of National Development and Land Maintenance. For example, when the contact page of the official site of Mount Vema (mount-vema.com) says fill out a form to contact, that is exactly what you would be expected to do, or the bid will be disqualified.
If you worked for Handy Deed before as a contractor and wish to apply for this post, it is important to note, that the official contact email address of Mount Vema to switchboard has changed last year to firstname.lastname@example.org, emails sent to email@example.com , firstname.lastname@example.org or to any e-mail address @mountvema.org or @mountvema.com, are no longer in use, it will not reach its destination. This is due to reports that the IT company which provided the e-mail services have been disqualified by His Mount Vema Majesty’s Government from proving IT services to Mount Vema.
Note: Not all bids submitted are successful. So, if the bid is not successful, you will be given another project to work and to submit the bid before other competitors do.
Your typical day will include:
