​​We are currently looking to recruit a Bid Manager to join a leading East Midlands based regional main contractor. 

If you are an experienced Bid Manager or have a technical background in Contract or Project Management and want to move away from the day to day site operation and in to Bid Management, then this might be the role for you.

Our client is an award winning business who have established and grown their East Midlands division in the past 20 years to become a contractor of choice for both public and private sector clients.

Projects will include Healthcare, Education, Residential apartments, Student Accommodation, Hotels, Leisure, Industrial and Commercial up to £15m in value.

In this role you will take the bid through its full life cycle on to the final delivery of the scheme. Don't worry, you won’t be on site but as a lot of the work is repeat business, it’s important the clients get what the bid said it would deliver, so some ongoing involvement will be required.

Responsibilities will include:

  • Attending and holding PQQ and Bid meetings

  • Manage bids process to ensure they submit high-quality, innovative, winning bids

  • Provide strategic guidance on best-practice tendering

  • Develop bid proposition

  • Communicate effectively with clients and prospects

  • Ensure all stages of the bid process are followed and reported on (from qualification to post-bid review)

  • Identify and manage resources from other departments required to work on live tenders

  • Identify main commercial/contractual risks for the business in bids

  • Keep up-to-date with industry/competitor/client news to support bids

  • Have a good understanding of competitors

 To be right for this opportunity you will need to have undertaken a Bid Management or technical role for a Construction main contractor. Ideally from an operational background, Project or Contract Management, you will have an excellent understanding of how projects are built and this will then be implemented to not just to provide successful bids, but to also demonstrate buildability to clients.

Excellent salary and benefits package on offer for the right candidate.
