🔭 Our mission & vision

Transforming how the world supports those left behind, through the power of people and technology 🚀

Job Description

At Beam, you get to do work that really matters. We’re solving the world’s toughest social problems. And we’re growing fast 🚀

It’s not easy. Nothing worth doing ever is. But we take care of everyone who works here with everything from coaching to personal budgets and pay highly competitively.

You’ll be joining a company that’s having a huge impact on people’s lives with a culture where you can be yourself, have fun and progress rapidly.

About the role:
We’re looking for a Bid Writer to join our Government Partnerships team to help expand Beam’s work, win more contracts and ultimately support more people on their life-changing journeys into jobs and stable housing.

You’ll spend most of your time deep in the detail of bid writing, but you’ll also surface to share key trends you’ve identified across the bids you’re writing and contribute to the team’s expansion strategy.

While your primary role will be writing winning bids, you’ll have opportunities to dabble in analytics, communications, finance and organisational strategy depending on your development interests. It’s a great starting point for people beginning their journey with Beam, or their career more generally, and we’re open to hearing from a wide range of experiences.

Responsibilities & tasks

You’ll be:
- Excited at becoming a bid writing master, pushing out high-quality applications for departments across government
- An integral member of the Partnerships team, leading on bid writing but also contributing to the team’s expansion strategy
- The go-to person for submitting high-quality written work, including formal bid applications, grant applications, business cases, and much more!

Ideal candidate

  • Obsessive about detail and accuracy

  • Someone who loves to write clear and concise copy

  • A speedy learner, always adapting and improving your writing and work based on feedback

  • A systems thinker who enjoys soaking up deep pools of new information

  • Able to enjoy working independently

  • Excited about the possibilities of technology transforming the lives of some of society’s most disadvantaged

Skills & qualifications

You’ll need:
- Strong and demonstrable writing skills
- An analytical mind and obsession with perfection
- A growth mindset and be hungry to learn

About the team

We’re a team of over 70 working from our beautiful co-working space in Shoreditch and from home. We’ve picked up an armful of awards for our work (including one from our former Queen!) We’re one of the 10 hottest startups in London, according to WIRED magazine and one of LinkedIn’s Top 15 UK Startups list for 2022. We’re also proud to be rated a top company to work for Escape the City, Tempo and The Dots.

We’re committed to hiring diversely and inclusively. You don’t need a degree to work here and we love to hear from ethnic minority candidates and/or those who’ve experienced social disadvantage. 63% of people we support are from ethnic minority backgrounds and 17% have disabilities. We believe we serve these people best when we’re a diverse and inclusive team.
