Senior Bid Manager (Team Leader) - Legal

This is an exceptional bids role in one of the largest law firms in the world. The Senior Bids Manager will manage cross-practice, regional and multi-jurisdictional pitch activities for the UK and Europe offices. This is a position for a committed and dynamic pursuits specialist to work alongside a highly-regarded international marketing and BD team.

You will act as an internal consultant pushing through best-practice in all elements of the proposals process from initial instruction to post-analysis. You will be responsible for ensuring relevant pitch content is appropriately incorporated into all relevant pitches and will assist in developing, leading, and managing the region's pitch services team, including ensuring the execution of best practices, processes, training, quality assurance and continuous improvement. Actively participating in the pitch process for all global pitches that include your assigned region, you will be involved in initial strategy sessions, coaching lawyers and other members of the pitch team on pitch best practices, reviewing initial and final drafts prior to lawyer review, leading rehearsals, providing presentation and Q&A interview techniques and conducting post-pitch evaluations to obtain feedback and trend analysis. It is key that the Senior Bids Manager helps to maximise the firm's ability to win every opportunity. There will be increased involvement in working with client teams in order to maximise revenues from existing clients, whilst also looking for new areas of growth and helping develop a strategy for further pursuits.

This is an opportunity that requires a strategic mind and an intellectual outlook, with a strong academic background, allied to extensive bids and proposals experience, gained preferably in a global professional services organisation. Legal experience is not a specific requirement so applicants may come from one of the Big 4 or other large accounting or consulting firms. It goes without saying that outstanding influencing skills are essential and previous experience of supervising others highly desirable.
