SoCode is partnering with a global leader in critical telecommunications technology. Their products are essential tools for the UK Security Agencies and, as such, they have had minimal impact form recent events and instead recorded record sales for 2020. Boasting the Metropolitan Police amongst their recent contract wins, they are now receiving more enquiries from leading UK and Global security agencies. To compliment this growth and support innovative product development into new markets, they now seek to expand their bid team with an experienced Bid Engineering Manager.

Working in a highly professional team of 5, the Bid Manager will support the sales process and deliver high class technical and written proposals. The role will be split between technical quotations and large tenders for high value contracts. The Bid Manager will utilise the company's ERP system to deliver robust BOM working closely with the Product strategy team. Interlinking with the Sales team is key to defining commercial strategy for each bid.

Ideally you will have experience of the radio and telecommunication sector, but consideration will be given to those coming from similar technical engineering sectors. Applicants will be required to hold or be able to obtain full UK Security clearance.

Core duties include:

Generate a Bill of Material to support the chosen technical solutions
To demonstrate commercial awareness, manage P&Ls, applying governance and gaining management approval
Interface with customers as necessary on technical issues, in coordination with Sales
Maintain knowledge of key competitors' technical offering together with Product Strategy Group
