Bid Manager - Utilities
Derby, Warrington

This is a fantastic time to join RPS as we continue to invest in our business operations and people ensuring we become an employer of choice. We?re looking to appoint an experienced Bid Manager to join the Water division based in Warrington or Derby. This is a key role playing a pivotal role in successfully manging the bid lifecycle for a portfolio of multi-million pound, high profile bids.

Reporting to the Business Development Director you?ll work collaboratively with RPS colleagues, responsible for creating high-quality prequalification questionnaires, proposals, tender submissions and presentations as part of a successful bid process. You?ll also be responsible for facilitating bid/no bid discussions and would be expected to challenge the decision-making process.

You will have demonstrable experience in managing complex bids, ideally within the Utilities sector. You?ll need a positive, determined approach and an ability to influence others. Excellent written English skills and a keen eye for detail are a must. Finally, you will need to be a 'self-starter' who works well autonomously and as part of the broader team. Experience using Sharepoint and Microsoft 365 packages (ideally Teams) would be a distinct advantage.
