Bid Design Manager

 

This is an opportunity for a skilled, creative and experienced designer to produce exceptional bid collateral materials to support the firm’s focus on winning new business. The successful candidate will turn creative bid briefs (and content supplied) into ‘bid concepts’ in order to ensure that the firm is giving itself the greatest possible chance of winning work.

 

They will possess not just the creative and technical skills required to produce professional-standard design work, but will also have the assertiveness and confidence required to question briefs and push-back when necessary with staff at all levels, so as to achieve the best possible creative output. This level of experience will also be important in making the decision, on (rare) occasions, to go off-brand in pursuit of winning a bid.

  • Additionally the successful candidate will require a degree of copywriting skill as document headlines and page titles may need to be brought into line with the concept for each bid.
  • The role will be predominantly focussed on producing exceptional bid materials but may also, from time to time, include other, more general, marketing design work.
  • The role will require someone who can act as a brand guardian - collaborating with the rest of the marketing team to support brand-correctness across all areas of work.
  • BDO has traditionally supplied hard copy documents, but is exploring options for more creative delivery vehicles (online, iPads, videos, animation etc) – so experience in these areas would be valuable
