Job Tite: Bid Writer - Procurement Services

Salary: Starting salary of £25,000+ dependent on experience

In-tend Procurement Services deliver bid writing assistance for a wide range of industries and services. We have seen a steady increase in clients requiring our services therefore we are looking to expand our team and are welcoming applications for an experienced bid writer who will become an active member of the Procurement Services department, reporting to the head of department.

Job Purpose

We are seeking an experienced, highly competent, dynamic and proven bid writer to work within our team. The successful candidate will liaise with the client to get accurate, high quality information to develop and add further weight to initial draft answers to Pre-Qualification Questionnaires (PQQs) and Invitation to Tenders (ITTs). The role by its very nature is subject to tight deadlines requiring a high degree of coordination, planning, multi tasking and time management. Therefore the ability to produce accurate, specific, highly professional responses either stand alone or as part of a bid team is vital.

In this role you will need excellent writing skills and the ability to check work thoroughly. You will need to liaise with people of all levels and to be an excellent communicator. The majority of our clients are responding to tenders issued by Public Sector organisations therefore experience of Public Sector procurement processes and regulations is essential.

In addition to bid writing assistance the role will also involve delivering workshops aimed at suppliers who wish to understand more about how they can improve bid writing and become more successful at winning contracts. We run several sessions each month throughout the country therefore the successful candidate must be confident to speak in front of a small audience and be prepared to travel regularly as required within the UK.

Responsibilities:

  • Reading and understanding pre-qualification and tender submission documents;
  • Carry out research (web based or otherwise) on clients and their industry to aid and tailor the written responses;
  • Drafting and writing bid submission responses using persuasive and positive language;
  • Edit and proof read bid documents;
  • Bid Evaluation and Feedback Analysis;
  • Keep accurate records and save material to a ‘bid library’ for future use;
  • Be able to work as part of a bid team or individually;
  • Able to work to tight deadlines whilst producing an excellent standard of work;
  • Willing to interact with the team and offer suggestions, innovation and ways to continuously improve services

You will need:

  • Persuasive writing skills and ability to check final response with close attention to detail
  • Motivated, with an eye for detail and high standard work
  • Familiar with online tendering portals
  • Confident presentation skills
  • The ability to build strong professional relationships
  • Enthusiasm and confidence to win business from clients
  • Ability to multi-task and prioritise workload
  • To be self- motivated to achieve targets and objectives
  • CIPS qualified or working towards would be a bonus

This is a busy, interesting and varied role and provides opportunity for a committed and pro-active individual to progress further within a growing department.

The hours of work are Monday to Friday, 8.30am to 5pm. There will be occasions when travel is required so ideally you will hold a drivers license and have use of a vehicle.

A professional standard of dress will be expected.
