Full Time

Looking for a change of pace or the ability to refine your craft?

Well you’re in luck, because we’re hiring! We are currently seeking a mid-weight Bid Manager to join our growing Commercial Department, and it could be you!

This role is a fantastic opportunity to work with a young and vibrant team with plenty of room for development and progression, and would ideally suit a junior Bid Manager wanting to take the next step in their career or a seasoned Bid veteran looking for an interesting change of scenery.

A bit about you…

We are looking for someone with a passion for writing and a flair for creativity to enhance our proposals and help us redefine our approach to tender management. We define ourselves by the quality of our services and expect the successful candidate to be able to reflect these standards within their writing; however, we aren’t always 'suited and booted’ and you will get the chance to write some great pieces in a variety of styles for clients ranging from local businesses to global brands.

Reporting directly into the Commercial Manager (and working regularly with our Content Manager), you will be responsible for the timely and efficient management of tenders; from start to finish; as well as presentation design and creation of ad-hoc sales collateral (e.g. whitepapers). This is an ambitious team with equally ambitious targets and as such, previous experience within an established Bid Team is highly advantageous - bonus points if you also have relevant industry experience (or laser vision)!

Essentially, your role will involve:

  • Identifying new opportunities for the tender sales pipeline
  • Coordination and project management of tenders from PQQ to presentation
  • Writing original content for submissions (and contributing to the tender library)
  • Liaising and coordinating with the sales teams and business stakeholders
  • Supporting the design or presentations and sales collateral
  • Creating monthly tender reports for Commercial Management

In addition to experience with the above, you should ideally have strong team-working skills, a proven track-record of working to tight deadlines and delivering under pressure, and an eye for detail that would make an eagle blush.

A bit about us…

Based in trendy East London, Bywaters is London’s premier choice for environmental services; our unique approach to recycling ensures that we will always find a way to reuse, recover or recycle any materials to prevent them from polluting the earth via landfill. We partner with businesses from all backgrounds and work alongside them to: educate staff on their social responsibilities; spread awareness of 'green’ initiatives to drive recycling; responsibly (and compliantly) manage their waste materials; and help them realise their environmental ambitions.

In a nutshell; we do the dirty work so that our clients can focus on their core objectives whilst simultaneously improving their environmental performance - leveraging their status to influence other businesses to emulate our practices and keep London clean.
