Bid and Business Development Manager
This is a brilliant opportunity for a Bid and Business Development Manager to join the Apprenticeship Team at CU Coventry (CUC) during an exciting period of expansion.
As we continue our development and growth in the apprenticeship sector, focusing on degree and higher level apprenticeships, the number of new opportunities available to us through formal tenders and bids is increasing. We are therefore looking to expand our team by introducing this new role.
This role will take the lead on managing the full tender/bid process for a variety of opportunities with both public and private sector clients. This will involve scanning for opportunities, liaising with colleagues across the University Group, project managing each opportunity and writing high quality tenders.
The role will also support our more general business development activities, which include client meetings and presentations, exhibiting at conferences and undertaking networking opportunities.
This is a demanding and fast paced role that requires someone who is enthusiastic, attentive and meticulously organised with highly developed communication skills and the ability to build relationships and influence people.
Experience of writing successful commercial bids, tenders or proposals is essential, as is experience of working in a commercial, goal focussed environment. Knowledge of the Higher Education and/or apprenticeship sectors would be advantageous.
You will be expected to work 36.5 hours per week.
