Good service means we are there for our partners and customers when they need us – and beyond. That is because we define ourselves by what we do. Every day, every hour, every minute. We help our customers move the world.

Leading a team of subject matter experts, you apply your project management skills to create winning proposals that exceed customer expectations.

You will be responsible for balancing an opportunity from qualification to contract award, including value proposition/strategy development, solution development, commercial considerations, partner identification, and risk management.

Your ability to craft messages that speak to our customers cohesively and comprehensively, understanding the needs of our customers, how to best address them, and match them with our value proposition, is crucial to delivering winning bids for the business.

What your day-to-day will look like:
  • Lead bid teams and inputs from various partners, typically involving contributions from Sales, Marketing, Product Management, Finance and Commercial, Legal, and Project Management.
  • Establish and maintain critical targets and performance indicators to measure and control bid projects and contribute to continuous improvement and knowledge sharing.
  • Be an excellent communicator, and liaise with both internal and external clients.
  • Lead customer-facing activities (customer interviews, Q/A sessions, project achievement meetings, design approvals, final acceptance procedures) from bid generation to final project acceptance.
  • Review the financial aspects of the bid, ensuring all services are included in the final price to the customer; manage the budget throughout the lifecycle of the bid process.
