Application for the position of Cost Estimator

Dear Head of Human Resources,

As a Cost Estimator with 3 years of experience in multi-million $ construction projects, I apply with enthusiasm for this opportunity.

I am currently the Project Cost Estimator at BENEX Group, where I work closely with project teams to develop estimate plans, prepare industry-competitive estimates, and perform estimate validation on internal and 3rd party estimates. Mirroring your requirements, I:

  • Align estimates with project execution plans, project control guidelines, and industry best practices
  • Develop budgets (typically $1m+) in line with pre-planned strategy and in accordance with the RFP
  • Saved ~$206K in projected costs in 2019 by strategically sourcing the most efficient subcontractors

I possess a substantial background in process management, alongside a proven record of leading teams from design to construction with an emphasis on building long-standing client relationships. In addition to my experience, I hold a Bachelor of Construction Management and am a Project Management Professional (PMP). I am familiar with all required software including Easy Projects, Avaza, and Trigger.

I have loved every minute of my time at BENEX. As they are relocating their head office to London, I am now seeking a stimulating opportunity closer to home.

Please find attached my resume for your consideration. Thank you very much for your time. I look forward to hearing from you regarding next steps.

Yours faithfully,

Emilie Ottosen
