Rail Bid Engineer

Sheffield Head Office
Job Ref:

LSL are searching for a permanent, experienced, enthusiastic and well-rounded Engineer and/or Project Manager to join the successful Bids and Tenders team.

The suitable applicant will have previous experience in Railway Engineering and/or Project Management and have a good understanding of the systems that support the operational Railway including Signalling, Telecomms (Operational and Station) and Electrical. Knowledge of the Civil Engineering requirements to support these systems would also be advantageous.

The Bid Engineer will be expected to :-

  • Read and understand the technical elements of Invitations to Tender
  • Produce accurate lists of the equipment and quantities required
  • Work with the Engineering team and Procurement team to obtain equipment prices
  • Work with the Engineering team to estimate the labour input required for all management, design, construction and testing and commissioning activities
  • Input labour and materials estimates into ‘price build up’ sheets
  • Work with the Engineering and Project Management Team to produce Project Programmes
  • Work with the Engineering Team, Project Management Team and Bid Team to complete all other aspect of tenders including customer pricing sheets, technical submissions, organisation charts etc…
  • Work with the Business Development team to provide technical support for sales activities.

LSLs approach to manging tenders is to employ a ‘hands-on’ bid team that have the knowledge and capability to work largely independently and only draw on the knowledge and skills of the busy ‘operations’ team when required, hence Railway Engineering/Project Management skills and experience are essential. Previous bid management skills would be advantageous but are not essential.
