Being a full-time bid writer can be a stressful and non-stop job, but if you work for a consultancy that writes tenders across all industry sectors, it can also be very interesting and varied!
April is a particularly busy time of year for us, and our team of writers are working on over 40 bid and tender submissions – we take a look at a few of our bid writers and their current projects.
Callum – bid co-ordinator
Callum is nearing his one-year anniversary with us and he works full-time on one of our largest accounts: a national lift maintenance company. We have worked with this client since 2016 and supported them on over 150 bids to date! Currently Callum is working on the following bids:
- London Borough of Redbridge – Lift Maintenance
- Royal Armouries Museum – Lift Maintenance
- Exeter City Council – Lift Maintenance
- Derby City Council – Lift Maintenance
Mary – bid writer
Mary has one of our highest success rates in the team and writes across all industry sectors – her background and previous career in research is very well-suited to the role of bid writer. She is working on the following tender submissions (which are very varied!):
- North Tyneside – Minor Building Works Contract
- North Ayrshire – Drug and Alcohol Prevention and Early Intervention Support Service
- Lincolnshire Housing Partnership – Asbestos Management ITT
- Reading Borough Council – Supported Living Framework
Alex – bid writer
Alex manages two of our long-term retention clients, as well as writing for other projects. This includes a grounds maintenance and cleaning company, and a painting and decorating company. Via our retainer agreement, they have access to Alex (and the rest of the team) for all their tendering requirements, and over the years we have built up a great understanding of both businesses. Alex is currently working on the following bids:
- Metropolitan Thames Valley – Cyclical Redecorations
- Guinness Partnership – Estates Cleaning Services
- Octavia Housing – Provision of Grounds Maintenance Services

How do the team of writers embed into the client organisations?
One of the questions we are asked most frequently is about how our writers really get to know the organisations we work with – no one knows your business like you do, right? Right – but can you successfully portray this in a winning tender submission? That is where we come in, to work alongside you to source that expert knowledge and ensure it is written in a high-quality bid that is tailored to the buyer’s specification.
Executive Compass have built up a whole host of experience over the past 10 years and have been involved in thousands of bid and tender submissions. Our team have a wealth of knowledge, ranging from procurement through to engineering, which provides us with a great insight so we can provide business advice and consultancy, not just tender writing support.
