Bid Perfect People

If you need an exceptional bid writer, manager or director, why go anywhere else other than a company that specialises in recruiting people to head up or support bid teams?

Advertising online means you take on the hassle of sifting multitudes of responses, many of which will be unsuitable. A large recruitment agency that recruits for every conceivable job role will not understand bids and tenders, or your needs, like we do.

Contact us! We are specialists and we are hassle free.

Bid Perfect is a consultancy and training company operating only in bids and tenders, across all industry sectors. Bid Perfect People specialises in matching your requirements with our carefully vetted talent pool.

We have specialist recruiters dedicated to helping you find the right individual (or team) to support your projects and we are confident that we have 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.

This way we will identify potential people for your business accurately and you won’t have to waste time reviewing inappropriate CVs and interviewing candidates who haven’t been properly screened.

One thing we have learned in the past seven years is that successful people surround themselves with the best team, those who can deliver, who can hit the ground running and commit themselves to making your bid a winner. The world of bids is highly competitive – for your business to submit that stellar bid you need to find exactly the right people. 

We have a network of high performing writers and managers whom we have built strong relationships with over the years. Many started out on our training courses or using our consultancy and then returned to us as interims or candidates looking for new assignments or career progression. It's a strong talent pool you will share in too.

We can hire for you at all levels, from entry level (with Bid Perfect Training if required) to global bid directors. 

Who can we provide for you?

Bid Creation & Management
  • Bid Managers 
  • Bid Writers 
  • Senior Bid Managers 
  • Bid Directors 
  • Global Bid Specialists  
  • Bid Writers/Authors 
  • Graphic Designers

If you need someone right now, or anticipate needing someone in the future, please contact us.

We are waiting for your call or email. 

How we work with you 

We don’t apologise for being selective about who we take onto our register because impressing our clients by fielding the right candidates for permanent and interim roles is absolutely key to maintaining our excellent reputation. This is why we will get to know you first - we will ask you to take part in a screening interview either face to face, by phone or on Skype. Once you are on our database, we will stay in contact with you and call you when we know we have a suitable placement to discuss.

Your details will not be sent out to clients to market your availability unless we have your permission and have some sound industry intelligence to suggest our client would be interested in seeing a CV like yours. 

We are not an anonymous recruitment agency and we don't act like one. We won't send out candidates who vaguely match a role description en masse. We are precise, bespoke and specialised. We will only forward your details to our clients if 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.

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. 

Good relationships are everything

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.  

The huge success of our training and consultancy business has enabled the organic growth of this additional resourcing service and gives our clients access to a truly talented and experienced group of interims and candidates. 

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