Be Part of something Bigger

The ideal candidate will have a strong track record in winning new business through the competitive bid process. Your purpose will be to create, pursue and materialize business opportunities with European Enterprise and Institutional space organisations. You will define the win strategy, build consortia and lead bid teams to prepare proposals as responses to RFPs.

You will be accountable for planning and execution of proposal projects with multi-disciplined teams ranging in size and complexity. You will bring together technical experts and partners to shape solutions to customer requirements, lead the bid process and development of the RFP reply, and structure and negotiate agreements end-to-end.
