•Interpreting drawings and bills of quantities

•Contacting suppliers for prices of materials and products

•Using the in house database to generate pricing

•Generating quotations and populating spreadsheets with prices

•Liaising with sales team regarding details and submissions

Candidate must have:

•An interest (and preferably experience) in manufacturing

•Excellent attention to detail and organisational skills

•Good writing and maths skills

•Proficient IT skills

•Excellent communication skills and ability to work well in a busy environment

•Positive attitude and a drive to secure contracts for the company

This is a full time, permanent position, with salary negotiable based on experience.
