The Job

We are seeking an ambitious individual to join our enthusiastic team as a Bid Writer/Project Manager.

You will be responsible for analysing requirements, defining a bid plan, assigning tasks, and also writing much of the bid whilst ensuring that it is completed on time and to the highest possible standard. It is worth noting that bid writing can be quite different from other types of writing; you will need to be able to take in technical detail, emphasise the benefits and value the product can bring to a potential client, and make sure the content is tailored to the specific question.

The role will be offered full-time and is a permanent position with a 6-month trial period with a fixed monthly salary. It’s worth noting that the role might sometimes require working outside traditional office hours as you will be working with external stakeholders based around the globe.

  • Manage bid project progress and adapt work as required.

  • Overseeing all incoming and outgoing bid project documentation.

  • Participating in tender processes i.e. design, submission, and review.

  • Optimising and improving processes and the overall approach where necessary.

  • Securing growth opportunities and initiating new projects.

  • Preparing and leading bid project meetings including project team meetings, steering meetings (if appropriate), kickoff, closure etc.


The Individual:

  • Highly proficient in business English, both written and spoken.

  • The ability to write clearly and concisely in business English.

  • Demonstrable problem-solving and project management experience and skills.

  • Ability to manage multiple projects simultaneously.

  • An analytical mind.

  • Interest in technology.

  • Negotiation skills and the ability to develop strong working relationships.

  • A keen understanding of business and commercial priorities/processes.

  • A keen eye for detail and a desire to probe further into data.

  • We are open to non-Swedish speaking candidates.


Necessary qualifications:

  • Relevant university education.

  • High proficiency in Microsoft Office and GSuite tools.


Meriting:

  • Experience in bid writing or other professional content writing would be advantageous.
