At VWV we pride ourselves in providing quality legal advice and ensuring that our clients are at the centre of all that we do. How we market our legal services and brand reputation rests in the capable hands of our inhouse colleagues in our Marketing & BD Department.
As the market becomes increasingly competitive and the profile of the bids team expands further, this role will be critical to supporting the bid function and broad responsibilities that it is charged with.
Is this your next career move?
Based in Bristol you'll have the opportunity to lead projects and tenders autonomously, deputising for the Bids and Contracts Manager where appropriate. You'll provide crucial support in winning and retaining business through high quality bids/tenders and proposals. No two days will ever be the same; from managing the bid process, preparing documentation and producing drafts to supporting the delivery of the wider bid strategy. The bids team has the privilege of working across the entire firm, so you'll have the opportunity to get to know colleagues in every area of the business.
This is perfect for anyone who thrives on the challenges that a bid role provides whilst also embracing the ability to introduce creative changes and make an impact. We are offering a prominent position in our bids team - come and make the role your own.
Why choose us?
With around 450 employees we're a sizeable firm that still continues to grow, known for its friendly and welcoming culture where team work and collaboration is key, watch this short video to see what our people have to say about us.
For safety at this time our people are working remotely, though everyone is looking forward to getting back to the office at least part time, where our lovely culture is clear to see. We work hard but we also have fun and we're missing that social interaction with each other that really embeds our culture. That said, we have video meeting capability so we can still stay in contact as much as possible. This unusual time has proved we can work effectively as a business from home if needs be, so whilst we don't yet know how things will look when we return to our offices, what we do know now, is we can discuss the individual flexible needs for every employee and team without agility barriers.
We offer a competitive salary, holiday allowance that increases after 12 months with the firm, contribute to your pension pot, have an informal dress code which allows you to dress appropriately for your day no matter what day it is, give you private healthcare and life assurance, as well as offering a range of discounts with local businesses and with so many excellent internal training programmes on offer to everyone it's so easy to develop and improve your skills.
We’re passionate about creating an inclusive workplace that promotes and values diversity, we're striving to create an environment where everyone, regardless of background, can reach their full potential.
