Due to increased workload and team expansion, an excellent opportunity has arisen for a Bid Writer to join a vibrant and ambitious Highways/Civils business who provide engineering services to the UK transport infrastructure.

The Bid Writer will liaise with bid managers and their teams to provide editorial support and guidance, so that bids are written to the highest possible standards whilst developing, managing and monitoring the progress of the submission against the bid program.
