NEW Priority Bids Manager (EMEA) with leading International Law firm.

As a major global law firm, the firm responds to a large number of Requests for Proposals (RFPs).

The current EMEA bids team is a highly regarded function across the practice with an impressive win rate. Building on that success in order further to enhance support to fee earners, and to meet more complex/evolving client requirements, the function will expand from a team of three Senior Strategic Bids Managers to include three Priority Bid Managers - thus providing a broader and agile pool of specialist bid resource. The team will work closely with the relevant business development managers (industry, practice area or international office), acting as specialist bid advisers that go beyond bid production.

The Role

This is a high profile role and reports to Senior Strategic Bids Manager (Priority Bids Lead). The post holder will have extensive engagement with senior partners who lead top tier client relationships across the firm. Overall, this role has responsibility and ownership to lead, project manage and draft priority bids throughout the full bid lifecycle, ensuring they are delivered efficiently, consistently and professionally.

A large focus of this role will be to work with the Director of bids (Global) and Senior Strategic Bids Manager (Priority Bids Lead) to champion, drive and embed best practice across business development and with fee earners.

The post holder will work with business development colleagues and fee earners across the EMEA region and other global jurisdictions on both live bids and contributing to best practice.

Successful candidates will have previous Bid Manager experience from the legal sector or professional services and experience leading end to end smaller fast paced pitches. You will have the ability to liaise confidently and build relationships with people of all levels and the ability to work under pressure and to tight deadlines with excellent project management skills.

SR Group is acting as an Employment Agency in relation to this vacancy.
