Welcome to the team

At Benchmark Estimating we’re delighted to have taken on 3 new recruits already this year. Join us in wishing Astrid Corbatto, Ieva Bockute and Ella Clarke a warm welcome to our growing Manchester team! Both Astrid and Ieva are on board as Assistant Cost Estimators and Ella Clarke as our Project Coordinator.

Keeping our office inclusive is extremely important to Benchmark, so we’re thrilled to have 3 additional female members of staff in our already diverse team!
