Our client is the leading provider of “green services” to local authorities and other public bodies in the UK. It has almost three thousand employees nationally and is growing fast. Services provided include grounds maintenance in parks and open spaces, cleansing, and landscape construction. As part of their Management Development Programme, they are currently recruiting for a Trainee Bid Writer.
An opportunity has arisen for a permanent Trainee Bid Writer to join the team in Coventry. You will play a key role in the Business Development team via the Management Development Programme (MDP) Placement.
The MDP placement is a twelve-month programme where the MDP trainee will spend the first three months experiencing all functions within the business development operations including responding to pre-qualification questionnaires, attending bidders’ days, GIS mapping, bid writing, bid estimating, project research and client presentations. After this initial three-month period, the MDP trainee will specialise in the production of quality responses to tenders and service questionnaires. Within the first 12 months, there will be the opportunity to gain hands-on experience on a contract to develop a better understanding of the business.
At the end of the training year MDP trainees will undergo a review and final progress assessment, part of which will involve production of a final report and presentation to the executive board.
Those MDP trainees who show the necessary ability, motivation and commitment at this stage will progress to the post of Junior Bid Writer in year 2 and then following the achievement of development objectives progress to the post of Bid Writer in year 3.
