QinetiQ’s Bidding Graduates will focus on three main objectives:
As part of the Bidding community you will be in a position to make a real difference in the commercial success of our business.
By joining the Bidding team you will combine excellent organisational skills, creative thinking and strategic analysis to ensure that bids are managed effectively to deliver compelling proposals. The role will also give you exposure to every element of the business community. Successful members of this team enjoy the challenges of addressing individual work tasks while also understanding the bigger picture of the deal, its business implications and risks.
We offer a comprehensive graduate programme where you will receive first class training and support whilst working alongside experienced Bid Managers to learn the job. No two bids are ever the same. You will be exposed to a range of opportunities from weapons trials and evaluation to science research and software development and will make a positive impact across the business, supporting our growth.
You will be encouraged and supported in studying for an accredited qualification from the Association of Proposal Management Professionals, which is the internationally recognised body for Proposal Management. This will form part of the practical training programme that you will undertake, along with many other opportunities for formal training and skills development which will give you a practical based skillset for succeeding in the business arena.
You will have the opportunity to travel to and work at some of our other UK sites during your graduate programme, in order to get a good understanding of the business.
At the end of the two year graduate program, you will be well placed to take your next steps up the career ladder and where you have gained the necessary skills, you will be encouraged to apply for an Associate Bid Manager role within the Bid team and take on an increased level of responsibility
