2 or 3 days a week based from home, with all travel paid. This is a nice role if you are a bid writer within the 3rd sector / public sector realm who wants to get more involved in the actual projects on the ground. Who wants to help build a supply chain. Talk to commissioners. Assess if a contract is even worth working on and how we can make it work.

You will be joining a large charity who deliver projects nationally around mental health, supported housing, employment and domestic violence. Their business development team has 2 functions. Bid writers who put together the proposals. And Partnership Managers who do the groundwork up until handover. As a Partnership Manager, around 50% of your time will focus on existing contracts being delivered which are approaching the re-tender period. And 50% on new business opportunities for the charity.

You will be doing the groundwork in the process prior to hand over point to the bid writers. A typical week could involve:

- Attending market engagement events with commissioners
- Meeting with potential supply chain partners
- Reviewing budgets for a re-tender for feasibility with the delivery teams for pre-tender planning
- Write part of the actual proposals
- Reviewing / assessing new opportunities

People with a Bid Writer, or Grants background within the public sector or charity sector would be a good fit for this role.
