A rapidly growing engineering and software business that has a creative, experiential product is looking for a bid co-ordinator to join its sales team.
Reporting to the Sales Manager and working closely with a marketer and other administrative functions, the role will play a key part in nurturing and co-ordinating bid and tender processes, facilitating the smooth and efficient management and response of bid documents to a range of customers who work with the business on a regular basis.
Largely an administrative role that will have a lot of customer contact, the position is requiring experience of bid and tender co-ordination, ideally from technical, engineering, construction or perhaps software environments. To apply you should have experience of this nature, perhaps as a sales administrator and ideally you will have experience of working in a smaller business where flexibility and the ability to juggle a varied workload has been developed.
You should have strong organizational and administrative skills, couple with exceptional administration skills which will include high levels of IT literacy, particularly in excel. Ideally you will have experience of sales CRM’s. Crucially, you should also be someone who enjoys client contact. You should be excited by having client liaising and client exposure in the role. You should not be afraid to represent the company in a sales capacity – occasional client visits, attendance at Exhibitions and assisting with bid / pitch preparation and delivery will be included.
In return the business offers a supportive, close, family feel environment. It’s a great place to work – a fantastic environment and everyone in the business is very passionate about what they do. They can also offer career development as the business is ambitious and going from strength to strength.
