Our bid support specialist service can be as much or as little as required to achieve the best result. On most occasions we augment the in-house team with the specific skills they do not have available or would not expect to have in their permanent team. However, there are times when we provide the entire bid team to assist the client’s technical specialists.
The typical skills we provide are:
With vast experience of the pressures and time constraints of preparing a bid, we understand what is needed and when. Accordingly, we are flexible in our approach to providing support. We work with the client to understand where the gaps exist and agree a pragmatic solution of scalable services. The scalability is achieved through the consistency of approach across all of our network of bid support specialists, we call Bidmasters, achieved through our bespoke REWARD® methodology.
Our team of bidmasters appreciate that bidding is not a nine to five, Monday to Friday activity and are prepared to work flexibly to meet the schedule. We operate both on the client’s site or remotely using our secure shared environment software tool.
Business winning is key to the growth of any company, but too often the specialist resources required to prepare a winning tender are not available. This gap in resources leads to people trying to adapt their skills to meet the need, but unfortunately, this usually results in a poorly prepared response document and the contract opportunity being missed.
Our clients get access to bid specialists who are productive as soon as they start and are flexible about when and how they work. This provides a competitive advantage of using our bid support specialists to help with the preparation of winning tenders, without the overhead of maintaining a standing army or the cost of keeping them trained.
Our bidmasters are standing by ready to support your team in all roles relating to competitive tendering.
Our network of bid support specialists – Bidmasters – forms a cohesive organisation with a common focus and consistent method of delivering our products and services. This is achieved through our unique combination of a comprehensive Business Management System and our bespoke, best-practice, REWARD® methodology. In addition to employment, we offer a range of opportunities to suit the individual’s preferences and aspirations.
The first step is to join as an Approved Bidmaster, then, if appropriate, you can advance to become a Licensed Bidmaster and ultimately, you can become a Network Partner under a franchise agreement. To ensure consistency throughout the network, these are all underpinned by our written agreements.
Everyone’s aspirations are different and their personal circumstances require an individual approach. We provide the opportunity to match your lifestyle with your bid support specialist work – a true work-life balance. The opportunities range from taking on ad hoc work, through to real wealth generation as a Network Partner.
If you think you’ve got what it takes to become a bidmasters
The vast majority of people fall into the bid profession and most of the time without any formal training. As we are so passionate about the profession, we decided to fill this gap to give everyone the opportunity to start their bid support specialist career with the right level of knowledge, skills and behaviours. But that’s just the start of the journey, our progressive professional development comes in many forms, from blogs, videos, coaching, mentoring, online training and face-to-face training.
Our Training Director’s philosophy is, “Tell me, I will forget. Teach me, I will remember. Get me involve, I will learn.” Accordingly, in all forms of professional development we deliver, we adopt the principle of engaging with the learners to help them achieve Bid Mastery.
