With hundreds of different job titles existing in our profession, job hunting can be particularly fraught and often clouded with ambiguity. In our opinion, the bid profession can be simplified into six core job roles.
This classification reflects the markets we serve and the vast majority of our clients’ requirements. It provides a good starting point for understanding our profession and attracting winning talent to your business.
It's important to note that job titles differ depending on geographical location and industry. Within each job description we provide a number of alternative job titles that may be more familiar to you.
The six core roles we typically recruit at four levels:
- Entry Level / Apprentice
No formal industry qualifications. Less than 2 years’ experience
APMP or other recognised industry qualifications
Team Leader role or Team Manager with direct reports outside of live bids
Multi-industry / geography experience and manage large bid and proposal teams
