Nina Griffiths, Marketing Director
Bid Solutions were very responsive and put forward good quality candidates. They gave me sound advice in terms of where to pitch the role, and when we 'lost' some candidates, quickly came up with some more. Ben was a pleasure to work with - thank you.
Dalia Bagociune, Bid Team Leader

Heather Elliott, Portfolio Office Lead
With an increase of new business opportunities, it was clear that we needed a dedicated Bid Manager to professionally respond to tenders to promote our brand and high company standards. As this was a new position within our organisation, we felt we needed professional help. We engaged Bid Solutions to source suitable candidates and were delighted with the response. They immediately understood the role brief and our company culture and provided excellent candidates. This made the decision on who to offer the role very difficult! It was a pleasure to work with Bid Solutions and I would not hesitate to recommend them to anyone looking to acquire the best talent in the bid / proposal profession.

After searching for a bid writer with the right experience and attitude for our business for nearly six months to no avail, I contacted Bid Solutions to help me recruit.

Having spent over three months searching for a Bid Manager, we spoke to Bid Solutions who almost immediately provided a shortlist of suitable applicants. Within a month we had conducted interviews and made an offer to our preferred candidate. I was so impressed not only with the speed in which Bid Solutions were able to source the selected applicants, but how they completely understood our brief and were able to present candidates who suited not only what we needed professionally, but would also be a cultural fit within our organisation. I would not hesitate to recommend Bid Solutions and will definitely work with them again.

Claire Bird, Senior Proposal Manager
NG Bailey always aims to attract the best people for its proposal teams. Earlier this year we began looking for a Proposal Manager to join the London team. Having spent three months advertising the opportunity directly on our website, we were unable to find the right calibre of candidate. We decided we needed specialist help, an organisation that fully understood the role, the nuances of proposal management as well as specific industry terminology. We therefore reached out to Bid Solutions – having worked with them before, we knew they understood our business as well as the intricacies of the role we were trying to fill. Since starting, our new Proposal Manager has responded to all challenges with dynamism and vigour, adding great value to the team. We believe that Bid Solutions are the natural choice for any organisation looking for new talent.
Tim Snell, Head of Global Bid Management
When I needed to significantly expand the resources in my team, Bid Solutions were a natural choice for the assignment given their reputation in the Bid & Proposal Management sector. Martin's professionalism and expert knowledge of the industry enabled me to rapidly expand my team to almost double it's size. If I had the vacancies, I could've taken all the candidates Bid Solutions put forward. As a client, I appreciated having an expert take care of this on my behalf, knowing that I was receiving an exceptional service and a good result. Bid Solutions has a solid reputation that is absolutely backed by performance.
Paul Rollason, Territory Manager

Nadine Membrez, HR Manager
Due to our fast growing business, Kuehne+Nagel quickly needed to recruit a SANT Content Manager and a Bid / Proposal Manager to be based at our corporate headquarters in Switzerland. The candidates presented by Bid Solutions were of high quality. Throughout the entire recruitment process Bid Solutions provided professional assistance and both vacancies were filled within weeks. Special mention should be made to the specialist knowledge and experience in the special field of Bid and Proposal Management.
