Senior Bids Manager - Legal - London or Manchester

A leading national law firm is looking to recruit a Senior Bids Manager to support the firm in winning new business through its bids and tenders responses.

Reporting to the Head of Pitch Management, this role will involve drafting and editing answers to tender questions and project managing virtual teams across the business to deliver to deadline.

You will offer coaching and support for presentations, including coaching lawyers to draft the best answers to key questions and sharing best practice pitch management principles with lawyers and other pitch team members. You will support the development of an effective pitch library to enable the firm to avoid "reinventing the wheel" and review the work of junior team members. You will also attend customer pitch debrief meetings.

You will be able to deliver pitch documents on time to hit very tight deadlines and contribute to maintaining a successful win rate for bids and have the ability to influence senior challenging people whilst staying calm under pressure.

You will have excellent communication skills, written and verbal, excellent project management skills and experience of working within a professional services environment, with law firm experience an advantage. You will be educated to degree standard (with evidence of professional development an advantage but not essential) and be a proficient user of Microsoft Office suite.
