Bid Specialist – Full Time – Melbourne

About the Role

Aurora Marketing is Australia’s leading tender management company, with almost 20 years of experience in bid strategy, management, writing and production. We have won more than $135B worth of projects, across almost every sector of Australian industry, resulting in an extraordinary success rate of 98.5%! As part of our growth strategy, we’re recruiting a team of full-time tender experts to join our Melbourne office. This is a rare opportunity to join Australia’s leading tender team  and be part of an incredible, dynamic and energetic company.  

 Ideally, you will have 2-3 years of bidding experience in construction, infrastructure, transport and/or defence projects. We are particularly looking for people with experience bidding on major and mega projects, especially PPPs.

 You will be a diligent and capable person, with a mix of skills including technical and persuasive writing, deadline coordination, document formatting and final production. You will have a proven ability to work with technical teams and subject matter experts, particularly engineers and project managers, and have been able to earn their trust to get the job done. You will be hard working, well organised, able to work under pressure and to deadlines. Long hours and weekends will be required from time to time, and probably also occasional short-term travel – all of which will be generously rewarded.

 Duties

  • Representing Aurora Marketing in our tender engagements
  • Implementing Aurora Marketing’s bid winning methodology, systems and processes
  • Ensuring client satisfaction by delivering expert writing, coordination and production services
  • Supporting other Aurora Marketing activities when not engaged on an active project.

  • Close-knit high-performance team driven by core values of quality, reliability, passion, persistence and tenacity
  • Attractive remuneration package, in accordance with level of experience
  • ‘Above & Beyond’ rewards program for additional time and travel
  • Excellent professional development opportunities

 

If you have 2-3 years of relevant bidding experience and have great energy, drive and enthusiasm to be a part of our team, apply now.

 

"After more than two decades working in a variety of marketing and communications roles, I came into tender writing almost by accident.  After my first role with Aurora Marketing as a bid whip on a major project, I discovered I loved the competitive challenge of working with a client on developing a winning bid strategy."

"I've worked for Aurora on and off over the last 10 years. It's been a very welcoming experience, with highly professional staff, all driven to excel and cater first and foremost for our clients' needs. Although we all work across Australia, in a decentralised manner, you never feel alone; it's comforting knowing you have a team of experts to support you when needed."

Michelle Jacobs - Bid Writer

There is an inspiring focus on growth and development within the team, both in terms of business opportunities and in terms of individual training and personal development. The beauty of working with Aurora is in being part of a very close and supportive core team that works on an exciting and diverse range of large-scale, often city-shaping projects.

Aurora is the most dynamic and rewarding company I have ever worked with – which is why I am still her after a decade! What I have learned throughout this time, I could never have learned in any one organisation. The work is ever changing because of the nature of the tenders and clients we work with, but regardless of this, Aurora is always consistent in professionalism, approach and delivery.
