Tender Writing

Expert tender writers to help you create winning tender proposals

Tender writing

Whatever sector you are in, the chances are we will have the tender writing knowledge and experience you are looking for.

Our team of 21 professional tender writers, proposal managers, bid directors and trainers have over 200 years combined experience of successful tender writing in a vast array of sectors including, but not limited to, social and health care, construction, dentistry, IT, finance, printing, legal, architectural and recruitment. Whilst this means we understand the key issues from the outset it is not the primary value we bring.

We are a professional tender writing firm with in-depth understanding of the tender writing process and its demands. This understanding, combined with our analytical and structured approach to the tender writing process, means we can draw out the essence of your organisation and proposition and capture it on paper in a compliant and compelling way. Our business understanding and creative flair also ensures the proposals we create with you are highly competitive and stand the best possible chance of winning.

Our philosophy and approach is grounded on the fact that only the best tender will win. There is no point in simply doing a good job for our clients… whatever we do must be excellent. This means prior to taking on any tender writing assignment we will spend sufficient time with you to understand the specific opportunity and your organisation’s chances of winning. There is little to be gained from investing significant time and money in the tender writing process unless we believe from the outset there is a realistic chance we can create a clear rationale for selecting your organisation as the supplier of the goods or services.

We recognise the long term viability of our business depends exclusively on our ability to help our clients win work. With a success rate consistently around 60% we have an excellent reputation, one we are determined to maintain.

Our mission is for 100% of our clients to be delighted with what we do. Jason’s comments below are typical of the feedback we receive from clients.


If we sound like the type of organisation you would like to have working for you then please contact us at or call 01572 720603 to discuss the specific tender writing requirement you have. We look forward to hearing from you.
