An estimator is responsible for estimating the amount, cost, materials, labour and resources needed to complete a particular project or design. They often work on construction or engineering projects where they collaborate with engineers, managers and architects to discuss budgets and costs.
Estimator duties and tasks can include:
These engineering tasks are particularly well-suited to being outsourced. Organisations free up their local teams’ time by sending these tasks to outsourced estimators. This allows your onshore team to focus on performing higher value, revenue generating work.
TALK TO US
Estimators can communicate complex financial information to non-financial stakeholders such as architects and engineers. They possess mathematical knowledge and IT skills, which heightens their attention to detail when it comes down to preparing estimates for all products and materials.
Outsourcing services recruit estimators the same way an internal talent acquisition team would. Essentially, they ask the same questions to understand whether these offshore candidates would be able to provide the level of quality required by Australian organisations:
In terms of qualifications, a higher education degree or certificate in mathematics, civil engineering, construction science or a Cert IV in building and construction (estimating) is desirable. Outsourcing companies can help you find the right candidate to meet your organisation's estimating requirements. Hiring an offshore estimator who can work independently and possesses strong numeracy skills, means they can efficiently support and coordinate with your onshore teams to increase revenue and improve efficiency.
Organisations are able to appreciate the added benefits that come from offshoring estimator duties to the Philippines, including:
Increased employee satisfaction
Give your local team peace of mind by relieving them of any unnecessary tasks and sharing the workload with an offshore team or team member. This will help increase employee satisfaction within your business. With your estimator team able to focus on what they were hired to do, you can expect to see a positive change in your working atmosphere.
Hiring local staff can prove very costly to an organisation. Hiring an offshore team member that can assist your local team with routine estimator tasks for a fraction of the price will help you control costs in your organisation, saving up to 70% when compared to hiring locally.
Hiring full time offshore estimator can help increase profits and supercharge your business growth. By adding extra capability through an offshore team, your local employees will have additional capacity to take on more work and grow your business sustainably.
Sending daily, time consuming, repeatable estimator tasks offshore will allow your local team to take on more work. By sharing the workload between your onshore and offshore team, you will notice a drastic increase in efficiency and productivity within your organisation.
