Want to use your skills in developing high quality proposals to play a vital role in making clean water, decent toilets and good hygiene normal for everyone everywhere?
Join WaterAid as our Senior Bid Manager to change normal for millions of people so they can unlock their potential, break free from poverty and change their lives for good. On top of that you’ll be joining a 2020 Great Place to Work® award-winning organisation.
The WaterAid Institutional Funding and Partnerships Team has been tasked with leading WaterAid UK’s ambitious new strategy to grow the size of its programmes through restricted income. It is expected that this growth will primarily come from institutional partnerships with some of the world’s leading bilateral and multilateral development agencies, including FCDO, USAID and SIDA.
As the Senior Bid Manager in the Bid Management Team, you will lead the bid development process for large complex institutional grants and commercial tenders, working closely with key stakeholders including internal WaterAid colleagues in London and in-country as well as external key suppliers and/or partners towards achievement of WaterAid’s strategic programme objectives in priority countries.
This is a permanent full-time position, although requests for flexible working will be considered. It is expected that the role will involve up to 3-6 weeks travel each year (when circumstances permit), and will include some varied and unsocial hours. The post holder should be located in the UK or in a country where WaterAid has a presence, with a reasonable overlap in working hours with the UK.
