Job Description for Estimating Manager

The primary duty of estimating managers is to provide estimates for costs and time frames for projects' milestones and their eventual completion. Daily tasks include collecting information from involved parties, generating accurate estimates, and then communicating this information with relevant individuals and teams. Depending on the company and position, estimating managers may have regular contact with customers, vendors, and internal management, among others. Although some estimating managers work in small teams for large projects, they frequently work on their own to facilitate communication and planning among all parties.
