Durham Recruiting is looking for an experienced Project Manager from the Restoration Industry. This role is based out of Scarborough, but our client gives you the ability to work from home when needed and most days are on site as needed for Estimating. Work-life balance can always be a little challenging in this industry but this client in particular values their employees and gives as much flexibility as possible to their PMs.


The Opportunity:


As with any Restoration PM role you will be servicing clients (all residential at the moment but they are moving into the commercial/industrial space) within their territory of West Durham, Scarborough surrounding areas. Great news with this role is that you are assigned a PM Assistant!


You are responsible for:

  • All inspecting, estimating, managing the projects and working within set timelines within Xactimate or Symbility
  • Constant communication with insurance adjusters, property managers and clients throughout the job process.
  • Obtain bids from vendors and sub-contractors, award jobs, assign budgets and quality control
  • Review construction plans, coordinate permits and review for compliance and accuracy
  • Increase sales opportunities to up-sell services and assist with AR as needed
  • A full list of responsibilities will be given during the interview process

What Stood Out For Us:


We have the privilege of working with various restoration companies both here in Durham and in Scarborough which all have their own unique qualities that make them awesome to work for.


This company, in particular, stands out for its flexible model in how they treat their PM’s. They have set up their policies/technology to have the ability for their PM’s to work from home when needed, understanding there are going to be a lot of 12 hour days when it is their typical slow season they appreciate that their staff will do shorter days. There is give and take within their company culture, also an appreciation for what the PM’s go through for their company.
