About the Company:

Eunomia Research & Consulting is an independent and ethical environmental consultancy.

Job Description:

As an energetic and highly organised Bid Administrator, your role is expected to support the Commercial function in growing the business. This role will begin with a few of the core tasks below, adding further elements as delivery of each initial task becomes more efficient. The role should become a real go to point in the business in terms of all things BD. Tasks are likely to build to include:

  • Bid administration and supporting colleagues across the business to help them administer bids
  • Training colleagues to understand and use the bid administration tools to prepare compliant and well presented bids
  • Editing and maintaining tender portal searches ensuring our Tender Review systems are capturing relevant opportunities
  • Distributing relevant opportunities to the appropriate colleagues
  • Ensuring all standard bid content is kept up to date to be used in bids
  • Creating and distributing regular reports on sales data within the CRM system
  • Building key account management capabilities
  • Improving contact information
  • Helping to gather CV’s, project history, and other information for individual bids
  • Running compliance checks e.g. are colleagues following our processes correctly.

Business Development Assistant

Person Specification:

To succeed within this role, you will need to be highly organised, excel in multi-tasking and be able to work under high pressure on short bid deadlines. You will be a detail-orientated person, able to exercise extreme attention to detail with a can-do attitude and a willingness to get stuck in to any task that supports the growth of the business and your colleagues around you. As such, you will need to be a self-confident and outgoing individual with strong communication skills, who is able to build rapport quickly.

You will need the ability to learn the basics of what we do rapidly (from recycling to carbon mitigation, and marine plastic flows to socioeconomic modelling), as well as become an expert in our business development processes and systems. You will become the go to person on all things bid process and bid resources for the company, and will act as the right-hand person to the Head of Commercial/Business Development Assistant in analysing and reporting on sales performance and bid process compliance. This is an operational support role, focused on supporting our growth and so our ability to make a positive difference to the environment.
