As a Bid and Proposal Co-ordinator you will support new business through the full end to end proposal process – from initial interest and co-ordinating activities around pursuit of an opportunity, co-ordination of responses to pre-qualification questionnaires (PQQ), if applicable, and final tender proposal documentation submission.

  • Minimum requirements are 5 GCSEs Grade A- C or 3-8, including Mathematics, English Language and Science.

  • Analytical and problem-solving skills with the ability to interpret technical requirements.

  • Excellent communication and interpersonal skills, with the ability to build relationships with internal and external stakeholders.

  • Attention to detail and a high level of accuracy in your work.

  • Proficiency in Microsoft Office Suite, particularly Excel and PowerPoint.
