Meet our newest Estimator/Surveyor, Oliver, who joined Artemis this summer.
In his role as an Estimator, Oliver has to assess clients’ requirements, provide tree advice and then write up a competitive quotation. Usually the first point of face-to-face contact between a customer and Artemis, our Estimators have a responsibility to be knowledgeable, professional and courteous with an excellent understanding of tree work. When a new Estimator joins us they spend time out on site with our teams, getting to know our working practices and our skilled arborists who work on-site carrying out the jobs.
As a Surveyor, Oliver is highly qualified with an in-depth knowledge of trees and the issues around tree management. (See our news item in March 2019 for more details on Tree Surveys).
Oliver took the time to answer a few questions about his role within Artemis.
Please give a brief outline of your current role.
