You will build solid internal relationships with these SMEs to ensure accurate and timely delivery of this information, usually working to tight deadlines.
  • You'll also develop and maintain an effective database of information and liaise with the UK team to ensure this is always up to date and accurate using this to create and promote an environment of continuous improvement helping to improve our overall achievement.

To be successful in this role, you'll have experience of planning, writing and executing winning tenders in line with pre-defined briefs. Your excellent written communication skills will ensure you produce quality bid responses. You'll also be able to influence others to ensure priorities and actions are clear and achieved. Your project management skills will allow you to manage your own workload and to ensure that others across the UK team are clear about their priorities.
Ideally, you'll have a qualification in bid/proposal writing, and experience of prosthetics and orthotics would be an advantage.
