  • Identifying potential suppliers and new products;
  • Contacting a range of suppliers and sub-contractors to obtain quotations and
    agree delivery times;
  • Keeping detailed records and maintaining a well-organised work schedule;
  • Assessing the reliability of sub-contractors and suppliers;
  • Dealing effectively with challenges with suppliers and the flow of materials;
  • Ensuring compliance with the safety, health and environment requirements
    of materials and services;
  • Providing advice to the project estimator on the predicted cost of individual
    items;
  • Liaising closely with the estimator at the tendering stage to ensure that an
    accurate project cost is provided;
  • Preparing and maintaining cost reports in order to maximise efficiency within
    the business;
  • Negotiating and agreeing the most favourable terms possible with suppliers
    once a contract has been secured.
