Bid Designer – High Spec Residential

£25,000 – £35,000 + package

Croydon, Kent


About the Role:


I am currently looking for a creative minded Bid Coordinator with a Design background and experience on InDesign & Revit for a highly respected and slick construction contractor based in Croydon. This new requirement has come to light due to huge number if incoming tender enquires which are stretching the current pre-construction / bid team to its absolute limit. This Bid Coordinator opportunity offers a doorway into a busy, well experienced but small pre-con / bid team with a huge opportunity for progression up the ranks. The current team work closely together with a great atmosphere in the office helping them get an average of 15 live tenders in and out each month.


The role itself is one that will fit only the most creative and determined candidates. You will slot into the existing team, reporting into the MD & Pre-con Director. Your mission; to coordinate and pull together all of the areas of the bids into InDesign whilst making the entire document look more beautiful than sunshine on a winters morning– some call it Bid Management, some call it spinning 14,000 thin china plates blindfolded on a tight role whilst trying to paint the Mona Lisa…. Easy, right?


If you’re not coordinating client facing tender submissions and responding to PQQs you’ll be designing new layouts and logos to make the Bid Documents stand out from the crowd. Sound fun? Click Apply. This team is well established and experienced, but small in essence. Each individual mucks in and offers their support in every detail, and the successful candidate for this role will come armed with same can-do, team mentality.
