Bid Perfect People

If you need an exceptional bid professional, you could try advertising online, although you will need to spend time sifting through a multitude of responses, many of which will be unsuitable. Alternatively, you could try a ‘high street’ recruitment agency, although they will not understand bids and tenders, or your needs, like we do.

Our dedicated recruiters will find the right individual (or team) to support your projects through access to the best talent in bid management and bid writing.

We start by qualifying what you want to achieve with your recruitment; whether an experienced short-term interim, a permanent candidate or both will best suit your purpose. If you are not entirely sure what skills and background you require, we will advise you, and will also provide benchmarking regarding salary or day rate. We will help you build a job description and person specification by determining what kind of personality, team fit, management style, skills and experience best suit your business objectives.

Our tried and tested process will identify potential people accurately and you won’t have to waste time reviewing inappropriate CVs and interviewing candidates who haven’t been properly screened.

We can hire for you at all levels, from entry level (with free Bid Perfect training if required) to bid directors. We have a network of high performing bid professionals with whom we have built strong relationships over the years. It's a talent pool you will share in too.

How we work with you 

We are selective about who we take onto our register. Impressing our clients by fielding the right candidates for permanent and interim roles is key to maintaining our excellent reputation. We will get to know you through a screening interview either face to face, by phone or on Skype. Once on our database, we will stay in contact and call you when we have a suitable placement to discuss.

We are not an anonymous recruitment agency and we don't act like one. We won't send out candidates’ CVs who vaguely match a role description en masse. We are precise. We will only forward your details to our clients when we have your permission, and when we are sure there is a likelihood of a happy outcome when client and candidate meet.

Engaging with Bid Perfect

On our bid jobs page you will find a list of current vacancies we will be delighted to discuss openly with you once you have registered your details. You can do this by sending your CV and agreeing to our initial screening interview which will be scheduled at your convenience.

If we don’t feel we have a good opportunity for you right now, we will explain why and, if necessary, provide advice around where you should focus your job search and whether your CV needs to be revised accordingly. 

Good relationships are everything

To us, our interims and potential permanent candidates are our ‘pearls in the oyster’; you will be highly valued for your skills and expertise. You will never be treated as just another candidate to make up the numbers. 

We want you to get to know us and build a good relationship with us that will last many years. Since Bid Perfect was established in 2007, many of the bid writers and bid managers who have come through the Bid Perfect training courses have started as our clients and, in time, become our candidates and then become clients once more.  

Want to join us? Please send your CV and contact details to and one of our specialist recruitment consultants will be in touch with you shortly.
