Rob Candler, CEO of Fixatex, urgently needed a Bid Manager / Writer to take control of the bidding process, despite much of the country being in pandemic lockdown. Rob outlined the specific skills that he wanted to bring in to the business and Bid Solutions provided guidance on job descriptions and how different roles interact within the bid lifecycle, ensuring that he hired someone with the right skills, not just the right job title.
With a plan in place, Bid Solutions commenced searching for suitable candidates. As this was the first time that Fixatex had hired a bid professional, the blend of technical and soft skills was of vital importance. Despite the unprecedented market conditions, a shortlist of CVs was presented, virtual interviews were conducted, and the successful candidate was offered the position – all within a three week window. The new Bid Manager / Writer started work shortly after.

“Bid Solutions helped me secure a position from initial application to contract acceptance in less than a week. Ben helped at every stage with the application process, ensuring that I always knew what was happening next – even down to the point of checking word count on a submission! Outstanding help and I’d definitely recommend Bid Solutions to other Bid writers / Managers.”
