Our client is a leading specialty contractor, based in the GTA, that focuses on large projects in the industrial and infrastructure spaces. They have an opening for a senior-level electrical estimator to be based at their headquarters location.


Reporting to the Estimating Department Manager, you will be responsible for reading and interpreting electrical drawings and specifications to develop accurate Labour, Material, Equipment, and Project Expense estimates in Accubid for review and closing.

Because our client has multiple trades working on projects, you will collaborate with project managers and mechanical and/or civil estimators to coordinate a comprehensive project estimate and close bids.

As projects move from the drawing board to implementation, you will support the project managers and field personnel to review revisions and scope changes so they can provide clients with timely feedback on cost implications. You will be able to identify and propose revisions that will save clients’ money.


The ideal candidate will have over 10 years’ prior estimating experience, working on projects in the $100K to $200M range – preferably on industrial projects. You will have a proven track record of identifying cost savings and delivering accurate, reliable estimates. A diploma in engineering technology or a degree in engineering would be an asset.

Candidates with international training and/or experience in major projects are urged to apply.

You are very familiar with medium voltage, distribution voltage and low voltage/fiber wiring systems and have advanced skills with project estimating applications such as Accubid. In addition, familiarity with Switch Yard and outdoor substation systems will be an asset.

You are comfortable working independently or as part of a team and enjoy working in a fast-paced, deadline-oriented environment.


Our client offers the successful candidate competitive remuneration and an attractive flexible benefits program.
