Bid Coordinator






Do you have experience in tenders and bids? Looking for a company that will nurture and develop your career? Want to do the best work of your life? Playing your part in making a big difference to the environment and communities we serve.


Our people make Severn Trent a truly exciting and inclusive place to work – a place where you can be yourself and let your skills shine. 


Our purpose is taking care of life’s essentials, but we’re also big on making a difference, not just because we should but because we care.  





The Bid Coordinator role sits within Severn Trent Services, the commercial arm of the FTSE 100 company Severn Trent Plc. Severn Trent Services are a national company, providing UK businesses with tried and tested water services that reduce water and wastewater costs, improve efficiency and manage risk and compliance.


Our Business Development team respond to requests for tenders for water and wastewater services from our existing clients or through opportunities identified from teams across Severn Trent Services. The Bid Coordinator will support the Business Development team with not only the identification of opportunity, but the creation of compelling and competitive bids for all products and services, (current and future), offered by Severn Trent Services to customers in both public and private sectors.




Our ideal candidate will have some experience with bid management and tender compilation alongside a foundation of financial and commercial acumen. If you had Portal Management experience too that would be great, although not essential.


Of course, it’s important that we attract the right skill sets, and those with the right experience but we value character, positivity and a caring attitude in equal weight.  

We want people who show up and roll their sleeves up. Restless spirits who are ready to be part of something bigger, who care, who really care... because when you really care, you’ll go above and beyond. When you really care you don’t just talk about it, you do more.  


We welcome people from all walks of life and celebrate individuality as we know diverse minds, experiences and backgrounds help us to learn and better serve our communities. We employ thousands of people from across our community who really care about what they do. Because that is how we do what we do.  


And when it comes to inclusion, we’re making sure we keep up the progress with our wonderful working groups – LGBTQ+, Women in Operations & STEM, Disability and Ethnicity; who help us do just that.  




We do more, because we care.  




It’s not just a job you’ll get here, you’ll get a career too. We have a range of benefits that reward and recognise great work and award-winning training to ensure you reach your potential. And we’ll also help you play your part in looking after the environment and the community in which we live.  Here’s some of our favourites:  


  • Annual bonus scheme of up to 15% of your annual salary, (based on company performance)   
  • Leading pension scheme – we will double your contribution (up to 15% when you contribute 7.5%)  
  • 25 days holiday + bank holidays (and the ability to buy/ sell up to 5 days per year)  
  • Sharesave – the chance to buy Severn Trent Plc shares at a discounted rate  
    • Dedicated training and development with our ‘Academy’  
    • Electric vehicle scheme and retail offers 
  • Family friendly policies 
  • Two volunteering days per year 




Apply now to build an amazing career and be part of a brilliant team. We can’t wait to hear from you.
