Apprenticeship Vacancy 10 December 2019

The role of bid and proposal professionals is integral to how our business wins work. Sometimes it is a separate job/discrete role, and sometimes it is rolled into another function. As a key part of the sales and business development function, the role works across various business teams to bring together compelling, customer focused proposals and tender submissions to win business. You will develop commercial capability, vital to businesses and valued across all business sectors.

The role of the Bid and Proposal Co-ordinator is to 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

The role involves providing support to all affiliated functions to assist the quality and timely completion of proposal submissions:

  • including organising meetings
  • structuring and writing proposal content
  • co-ordinating relevant activities and document management

This role extends to a range of related commercial activity such as sector analysis, trend analysis, engaging in contract law, and developing strategies to win business for a variety of goods and services. On completion of the Apprenticeship, many transferable skills will have been acquired, lending themselves to a variety of careers and job pathways. Staying in bid/proposal co-ordination and management is the most obvious route but roles in procurement, sales, business development, project management and many more, are options available dependent on the individual and their preferences and appetites. The attached tables describe the knowledge, skills and behaviours of a successful Bid and Proposal Co-ordinator.
