My client is a global legal services firm with a highly successful Bid team that has been in existence for circa 10 years, They have an exceptionally strong track record of winning tenders. Their current win rate is above the industry average and they have achieved this by focusing on competitive opportunities, following best practice and investing in their team members. This role sits within a large Central Bids team.

As a Bids Template writer you will have responsibility for managing the production of a suite of template proposal documents for specific practice areas. The purpose of these templates is to establish future efficiencies through a questionnaire based document automation system, and provide a consistent proposal for similar types of work across the firm. This role will be different to the usual bid management roles, as you will not be managing any bids. But you will use your years of bidding and proposal experience to produce a series of engaging and attractive templates for specific practice areas.

You will work closely with the Bids Team Manager, Business Development Managers, Bids Content Writer, and key practice area stakeholders within the firm to ensure that each template produced provides pre-written options for the end user to select. An initial draft could be gathered from reviewing past submissions. But a more generic draft needs to be tailored for each team, based on an understanding of the future requirements. This must then be refined and redrafted.

The successful candidate will have:

-Extensive experience writing bids, providing advice on approach and strategy (ideally, 5+ years)
-Experience delivering small, focused internal projects
-Legal services sector experience preferred, other Professional Services experience considered
