Job Description
- Experienced Cost Estimating Manager with demonstrated leadership skills required to lead a Cost Estimation team and deliver high-quality, accurate cost estimation services on complex capital infrastructure projects
- Establish and implement best-in-class project cost estimation and probity processes, procedures and tools to ensure market competitive pricing and compliance with all relevant legislation, statutes and codes of practice
- Opportunity to join one of Australia’s largest water infrastructure and capital works programs
- Genuine work/life balance; Parramatta location, close to public transport

About us
Sydney Water has a proud heritage and progressive future. We see the world is changing and we are changing too. The surging population of Sydney is putting pressure on our natural resources, housing and infrastructure. In just 15 years, we can expect an extra 2.71 million people and over 570,000 new homes.

To enable this growth, we are commencing one of Australia’s biggest water programs. This is being implemented through the most dynamic delivery framework of our generation - Partnering for Success (P4S). Our infrastructure capital program has already transformed and been recognised for excellence in delivery. That evolution is continuing through P4S. Technology enabled and enhanced processes, coupled with long term partnering contracts, are building a delivery platform for the future. We are improving collaboration and integration across the value chain, promoting innovation and flexibility to achieve outcomes that our customers value.

Long term stability brings a pathway for future talent to join the team. Promoting partnerships across the value chain aims to build an environment where change and innovation can thrive, in a safe, open, inclusive and diverse workplace. Our commercial agreements are adapting to support this change. In an Australian first, Sydney Water is adopting the NEC4 form of contract.  This suite of contracts brings plain English and a collaborative way of working right up front in the relationship with suppliers, contractors and consultants. This is a new way of working and doing business for Sydney Water and the supply chain, particularly for project and maintenance works.

About the role
The Cost Estimating Manager role is crucial to the delivery of high-quality project cost estimation information for Sydney Water’s capital infrastructure projects. Leading a team of Quantity Surveyors and Cost Estimators, the Cost Estimating Manager will work closely with the team and enable them to deliver accurate and timely cost estimation services for all project and maintenance works via a focus on continual improvement of new and existing project cost control tools and processes, as well as the development, implementation and maintenance of robust Project Cost Estimation systems, databases, and tools to ensure competitive market pricing. 

The Cost Estimating Manager will also encourage strong collaboration between their team and Sydney Water’s Project Management and Planning teams.  The Cost Estimating Manager will also make significant contributions to the development and approval of the NEC4-aligned Annual Integrated Works program. 

This role works very closely with both regionally-dispersed and integrated teams within Sydney Water and its Regional Delivery Consortia partners, ensuring the delivery of high-quality information for project cost estimation across the project lifecycle.

About you
To be successful in this role you will:

- Have demonstrated experience in leading Cost Estimating teams consisting of Cost Estimators and Quantity Surveyors, taking ownership of all aspects of team leadership, team performance, and individual and team mentoring.
- Have a high level of knowledge and skill in delivering outstanding cost estimation services on large-scale, complex infrastructure projects
- Have demonstrated experience in the development, implementation and management of estimating systems and databases
- Be a natural and confident communicator, able to engage with and influence internal and external project stakeholders with your extensive Cost Estimating knowledge and experience, and able to convey information in a professional, ethical and timely manner.

You will have:
- Tertiary qualifications in Engineering, Construction Management or a related field
- Quantity Surveying / Project Estimating qualifications
- Leadership qualifications / certifications will be desirable
- Prior demonstrated experience leading Cost Estimation teams
- Prior demonstrated experience in a Cost Estimation Manager role, ideally working on high complexity infrastructure projects
