Job Summary

AECOM’s Major Pursuits Studio manages some of the region’s largest and most strategic bids across both established and emerging markets.

The Bid Coordinator will generally support the Assistant Bid Manager and/or Bid Manager leading the bid, having read and understood the client requirements. He/she will devise draft bid programmes, coordinate inputs from Subject Matter Experts and track progress against tasks and individuals for reporting to the Bid Manager. The Bid Coordinator will work collaboratively with technical and operational colleagues, Bid Studio managers, writers, graphic designers and the Bid Studio leadership team. The role will cover the full procurement lifecycle including EOIs, PQQs and proposals. Bid Coordinators should be capable of successfully leading tasks such as EOI and PQQ form completion.
