They are looking for someone who wants to help the company grow, that isnt set in their ways and can bring vitality to the team and integrate into the team dynamic.

-Keeping up to date with all ISO and relevant accreditations as well as GDPR
-Monitoring vendors and auditing
-Investigating new suppliers
-Maintaining a record of relevant vendor accreditations
-Advise on merits of particular suppliers versus job requirements

We are looking for:

-Bid Management experience
-Working knowledge of the print and digital communications industry (essential)
-Background in either bid management or supply chain/procurement with strong bid knowledge
-Excellent command of the written word
-Strong attention to detail and ability to read between the lines of a tender question
-A desire to succeed under time pressured situations
-Excellent time management
-Excellent organisational skills
-Someone who has a passion for service delivery, is a team player and wants to work in a business that is ambitious and has an excellent reputation for customer service and delivery

In return you can expect:

-Salary: £32k-£40k
-Discretionary bonus based on company performance
-Holidays: 20 days + stats (rising to 22) + discretionary time off between Christmas & New Year
-Free parking
-Auto enrolment pension scheme
