Neopost helps organisations communicate better. Whether it’s paper based or digital, we offer innovative technological solutions that help our customers present themselves professionally, manage their communications more efficiently and reduce costs. We pride ourselves on our customer satisfaction levels and are committed to being the market leader in our sector.

This role is part of our Public Sector Solutions Team and will be integral to continued business growth in this area, but you’ll also get involved with Commercial customer opportunities as needed. You’ll ensure that we are continually on the front foot in terms of identifying relevant contract opportunities and then lead on the delivery of high quality and compelling bids and tenders. You’ll manage our contract pipeline and ensure that up-to-date and accurate market intelligence and insight informs our commercial decisions around bids.  You’ll also have in important role to play in contract management, fostering strong professional relationships with key customers.

It’s an opportunity that will suit a well-organised and commercially minded individual – with a proven track record of delivering revenue. Good all-round communication skills will be key, both with colleagues and customers. You should be able to bring an analytical eye to working with large amounts of complex information - distilling our commercial offer into a strong market proposition. Previous experience in public sector procurement and/or bid writing would be a plus, as would experience of bid project management but a keen desire to learn and develop your expertise in this area would be equally valuable. It’s important that you are a highly motivated and positive individual and that you approach your work with a positive, can-do attitude.

23 days holiday, plus a day off for your birthday (with an option to buy/sell days)
