What does a bid writer do?
Bid writers are professionals who help clients to prepare tenders (or bids) for contracts to provide goods or services. They also sometimes help charities to bid for funding.
The job involves working with clients to gather information about their business or how they would deliver the contract. You will then use that information to answer a series of questions.
Tenders vary in length – from just a few sides to hundreds of pages. You therefore need to really enjoy writing – a lot! Most tenders need to be submitted by a set deadline. You can therefore expect to work to a plan with milestones and deadlines.
In return, writers can expect to work with subject matter experts, and learn about a wide range of different topics and industries.
