About the team:
The Business Development team at ICF takes a lead on the capture of opportunities, the development and implementation of business development best practise and the support of technical teams in the development and submission of technical and financial bids to our clients. The team sits across all parts of ICF in Europe and Asia and works to ensure our business development efforts are working to the same process, level of quality and messaging on every bid.

About the role:
As a Bid Manager at ICF you will coordinate and lead bid project teams (made up of bid coordinators and technical consultants) according to ICF’s business development procedures. You will also provide professional support to the consulting teams, helping them to use the right tools at the right time to maximise the success of their bids.

You will occasionally have the opportunity to support bids from other areas of the business as needed. You will be based in either Birmingham or London, but may have to travel from time to time between our offices and perhaps to our office in Brussels too.

You will need to have around 5-8 years’ work experience, preferably in a consulting environment and focussed on business development activities – writing proposal sections, enforcing process, etc.
You should have at least a few years’ experience leading bid processes and managing bid teams
You should have a basic understanding of how bids are evaluated in a public-sector environment
You will need experience managing team sites, SharePoint pages and internal databases
Work experience and/or an interest in policy research, international development, or communications and marketing sectors would be an advantage
