Who are our Bid & Proposal Co-ordinators?
They’re the people who put together the complex bids and proposals that help us win major customers for Virgin Media Business.

Build your expertise
Rotating between commercial deals and bid management, you’ll learn how to answer the critical questions that go into every successful bid. How can we best meet customers’ needs? What is the true value of the services we’re providing? And what price do we need to offer to remain competitive in the marketplace?

Supercharge your skills
By the end of the scheme, you’ll be able to:

  • Coordinate tender responses
  • Assess the pricing and profitability of bids
  • Undertake competitor analysis and understand key market trends
  • Create additional value throughout the lifetime of the customer relationship

What we look for
The job involves coordinating colleagues at various levels of the business, so you’ll need to be comfortable communicating with all kinds of people and guiding them towards a common goal. The job also really compliments people who like working with numbers and spreadsheets and who know their way around Microsoft Office (especially Excel).
