Lucy is a recent graduate from Durham University. So far, she has been involved in a number of rail bids including the West Coast Partnership Franchise bid, where she set up and mobilised the Bid Management team, ensuring effective team management and seamless coordination between workstreams; Lucy also played a key role in the Stakeholder Team, managing stakeholder engagement and researching, analysing and compiling evidence for the bid. She also managed the Government tender portal for the bid, controlling vast quantities of correspondence and clarifications to/from the client. Lucy has worked as a Bid Manager for a Civil Engineering Company for Tier 2 construction works on HS2, coordinating the production and submission of bid documents to the client specifications. Lucy is also a highly capable event organiser, researching, setting up and managing several events for clients. Most recently, she enabled the effective collaboration between major transportation firms working in joint venture. By creating team building events, aimed at producing a more coherent, closer working environment, with higher energy levels, the JV was able to capture synergies which ultimately resulted in a more competitive, better quality bid with a higher scoring bid submission.
