This is an exciting opportunity to contribute to the expansion of the Smart Group by procuring new NHS contracts in the Secure Settings, Justice, and General Health Care markets.

The Group is looking for experienced Health and Justice Subject Matter Experts with a proven track record of procuring public sector tenders in the health and justice marketplace, particularly in tender involvement in Mental Health, Physical Health, Dental and Specialist care in Secure Settings.

The ideal candidate would also be involved in understanding the criteria involved in successful outcomes for public sector tenders.

Key Responsibilities:

  • Developing and writing method statements in line with specification requirements, reflective of the budget and model devised.
  • Working with an external bid-writing company to ensure that high-quality, compelling bids are submitted on time.
  • Working collaboratively and effectively with other Subject Manager Experts (SMEs), ensuring that local intelligence is utilised to inform the strategy, complementing wider research and intelligence gleaned through strong and powerful networks.
  • Leading and supporting the development of ad-hoc, business opportunities when required, developing business cases that secure additional funding and upselling of our portfolio.

Ideal Candidate:

  • Experience having worked in the Health and Justice NHS procurement team or having successfully completed bids for Health and Justice NHS Contracts is essential
  • Strong nursing, pharmaceutical, or medical background is essential
  • Excellent oral and written communication skills, including the ability to produce and present clear written reports and guidance, which interpret and effectively communicate/explain complex Health issues to a variety of internal and external clients
  • Ability to present effectively to a range of different audiences, including the ability to respond confidently to questions when under pressure in a competitive environment
  • Ability to research and present bid responses to create a library of bid materials
  • Proven problem-solving skills and the ability to be flexible and exercise sound judgement and decision-making and give sound advice often within tight timescales
  • Good numeracy skills that enable interpretation of business modelling to complete financial elements of bids
  • Proven ability to undertake a diverse and demanding workload and deliver consistently high-quality work, using own initiative, confident prioritisation skills, and working to competing deadlines
  • Strong ability to use Microsoft Word, and Excel and navigate confidently through a variety of web-based procurement programmes

You will receive a competitive annual salary that would be negotiable for the right candidate.

We offer a company pension scheme which we contribute to, free eye tests and excellent dental benefits for treatments in our practices.

You can also enjoy hybrid working and flexible working hours.  

The company operates 35 practices and works more like a cooperative, encouraging dentists into leadership roles and eventually into ownership of their own practices. SMART encourages training including aligner courses, and hands-on courses as well as contributions to Post postgraduate courses including Implant Dentistry and Restorative Dentistry.  Most of our practices are run as individual communities, run by individual Principal dentists, who make their local decisions along with their managers. All Associates have the opportunity to become the Principal Dentist of their practice and ultimately SMART helps Associates become the owner of their own practice.
