You have recent business development experience and a proven track record gained working in the health and social care sectors, ideally in mental health and/or substance use. All you need is the perfect environment to put your skills to great use. Welcome to Richmond Fellowship as a Bid Manager.
Right now, we’re undertaking a comprehensive operational management review, which means there will be an exciting period of change ahead – one that you could play a big part in. Indeed, should you join us, you’ll be responsible for the end-to-end project management of our tender opportunities. This will include analysing opportunities, making recommendations to progress, bid modelling (including budgets and overall bid management) and writing bids, all as part of a project team approach. Working closely with our partnership managers to ensure market intelligence, local knowledge and operational expertise are included in bids will be important too. And, when it comes to writing business cases for the remodelling of services and other proactive developments generated by partnership managers, again, it’s you we’ll turn to.
As well as a business development background, you’ll need a track record in writing and winning bids and generating income and experience of modelling to a variety of service models. A proven ability to set and manage financial budgets is also required, together with excellent project management and verbal and written communication skills. Comfortable working collaboratively within a team, you're great at managing conflicting priorities and establishing effective working relationships at all levels too, both internally and externally. What’s more, you're willing to work nationally, as required, have access to your own car and a flexible approach to working hours.
This role is a fixed term contract for 12 months to cover maternity leave.
