The Simonds story all started in 1949 with a passionate family man, Gary Simonds. He envisioned a builder that Australians could rely on to guide them through the process of crafting their perfect home. This vision remains at the heart of Simonds today with our commitment to making the Great Australian Dream a reality by placing home ownership within Australia’s reach.  

Becoming part of Team Simonds means becoming part of the family. Our people are the heart of what we do. Our homes are built for the community, by the community, with a local network of employees, trades and supplies all working towards this vision. It is this passion, dedication, and excellence that you will find on every Simonds job site, office, and display centre across the country. Today, we stand proudly as an ASX listed & leading national builder servicing customers across Victoria, Queensland, South Australia, and New South Wales.

Simonds has helped shape Australia. Few can say that. Whether we’re looking back at the homes of yesteryear, what we’re building now, or everything that’s still to come. We’ve not only shaped what Australia looks like, but more importantly, how Australia homes.



We are seeking a full-time Production Estimator to join our Display team within the Product and Innovation department at our St Kilda Road Head Office. This is a fantastic opportunity to be part of a supportive team who know how to have a laugh and help each other out when the going gets tough.

The primary purpose of this role is to produce accurate construction orders for display homes nationally that are clearly documented for use by the construction team, suppliers and contractors within time frames.

There are three key components to this role:

  1. Providing accurate ordering of all Display homes
  2. Maintaining the ordered file throughout the construction process up to maintenance including ordering of extra schedule requirements.
  3. Providing technical support to internal stakeholders

Other key accountabilities include:

  • Providing accurate take offs
  • Producing and modifying an accurate bill of quantities (BOQs) for Displays under construction
  • Obtaining relevant quotes and pricing
  • Allocating the required suppliers and subcontractors
  • Maintaining organised files and appropriate documentation of completed work
  • Completing set tasks and achieving job targets within designated time frames
  • Providing support to site supervisors



Previous estimating experience within the building and construction industry would be highly advantageous, as would a tertiary/TAFE qualification in estimating, however, the right attitude and willingness to learn is more important in order to be successful in this role.

Knowledge and understanding of the Residential Building Code and Australian Standards is required, along with strong analytical skills and the capability to interpret technical drawings. 

You will be an exceptional communicator and will be able to work in a team environment in order to achieve set targets and KPIs.

High attention to detail, the ability to meet deadlines and have demonstrated planning, organisational and time management skills will ensure that you are successful in this role.



Aside from a fantastic opportunity to join one of Australia's ASX listed leading residential builders, Simonds can offer you:

  • Great benefits across a wide range of products and services including a generous discount on our award-winning homes as well as all the great things that go in them. 
  • Access to our free employee well-being program, including counselling, nutritional, financial, and legal support for both you and your immediate family.
