Bidding Quarterly Issue 5 Out Now

Bid Writer News – Bidding Quarterly

At the time of writing, 2019 has significant uncertainty surrounding it. Thankfully, our experts are adept at dealing with such ambiguity. They’ve provided a fantastic set of articles in Issue 5 of Bidding Quarterly, full of great ideas for any bid writer and suggestions to evolve our profession in 2019.

Articles included cover topics such as hopes for the future of the APMP, our representative body. Will changes to its structure bring more support for bid writers working in the UK? We also look at how the bid writing process could evolve, ensuring that our teams get the support they need to win. Is the process becoming more seller-led? If so, how do we respond to that?

We discuss the important question of certification. With no formal educational route into bid writing, how do we assess the quality of candidates? Bid Writing courses are on offer, but should we be holding out for APMP certification?

Psychologist Rob Stewart offers his insights into the stresses of the bid and tender writing industry. He gives suggestions on how we can take better care of ourselves and each other.  We also look at bid writer recruitment, and how that has changed over recent years. If you’re looking to recruit a bid writer or to find new challenges in 2019 that’s the article to start with.

Whether you’re a freelance bid writer or have a permanent role there is something in the newsletter for everyone to read. We hope it inspires you to think about the future of our industry as we come to the close of 2018 and look forward to next year.

If thinking about 2019 has you considering making a change in your career, then get in touch. We’d be happy to help connect you with the next great opportunity in this fast-paced, fascinating and challenging industry.
