About The Opportunity

Calling all Proposals Managers! Let us tell you what makes this opportunity different to any other…

We are celebrating our 50th anniversary this year, so let’s just say our Work-winning Team is doing something right. The rapid growth of the Carey Group has seen the evolution of our Work-winning Team, who now tender for up to 500 projects a year from £5m to £80m for a variety of clients, sectors, and regions. How many people can say they were involved in ‘postcard’ projects such as The Royal Opera House, Selfridges and 22 Bishopsgate - the second tallest skyscraper in London? You could!

As Proposals Manager within the Carey Group, you will join a growing company and have the opportunity to shape work winning as we expand into new markets.


Your Role:

Based from our Wembley Head Office (HA90HR), you will join our existing submissions team in managing and preparing tenders, supporting the continuous growth and development of the business.

About You

  • Mentoring and support of Bid Coordinators, Bid Writers and Trainees – imparting your knowledge and expertise to build future Proposal Managers
