Talk to us about your bid



Succeeding is about getting the business that’s right for you. It’s about finding opportunities that fit with your strengths, values, and ambitions. It’s about giving you and your people the chance to really shine.

Working with Bid for Success is like having a really honest best friend for your business. We get to know you through our unique deep-dive approach and help you find the right opportunities; the ones that make you money and make your team excited.

We then, through great solution architecture, help you build a winning solution. After that we’ll write a bid that showcases who you truly are, so your ideal clients want to work with you. Our team of talented bid writers will find the right words to communicate what makes your business the perfect fit for the opportunity.


Our services cover every element of the bid lifecycle, as well as training and support to learn how to bid successfully. We have designed them with flexibility so you can pick and choose what’s right for you on every individual bid.

Bidding Services

We do writing for individual, bespoke bid responses through to leading a whole bid; this includes strategy, design, reviews, submission, interviews and site visits.

Solution Architecture

We get to know your business inside out via our ‘Deep Dive’ approach to build compelling, tailored value propositions that the end client wants to buy as part of your bids.

Bid Training

We offer online training courses to support SMEs into bidding, including our free ‘Get Bid Ready in Five Steps’ and 8-week paid course, ‘Bidding for SMEs’ to get you on the path to Bid Success.

Bid Mentoring

If group training isn’t for you, or you’d like a more personalised approach we can offer  1-1 mentoring or in-person workshops for organisations with smaller teams.


Support Your Bid

We provide that bit of support when you need it to achieve a winning edge.  It could be training, bid strategy, solution architecture, editing or ad hoc bid writing.

Sharing Your Bid

This is the option most customers choose. We develop the solution together and split the writing, backed with bid compliance checks so your bid is perfect.

All Parts of Your Bid

 Our team lead and will complete the bid in full. We take ownership of the bid, ensuring you can focus on your key priorities, with your bid in safe hands. 



As a team, everything we do is about being as flexible as possible and delivering efficient, successful bid services.

That’s why we believe in letting the results of our performance speak for themselves.

Our customers come to us for many reasons;

  • They’re time poor – lacking the hours to write a bid.
  • Their bid team is busy with something else, but a perfect opportunity has come up.
  • They don’t know how to get in front of good clients.
  • Their DIY bid performance has been poor.

Whatever the reason, once our clients join the Bid for Success family, they expand their team immediately, and know that we will do all we can to help them succeed. Our approach is completely flexible, giving our clients what they need whether that’s taking the entire bid process off their hands, or training up their people so they can do it themselves.


Divisional Director

Super fantastic job, absolutely outstanding. You scored second highest score out of everyone on one of the Work Stream Lots and the TOP/HIGHEST marks out of everyone on the higher value Lot. Testimony to the outstanding work Bid for Success put together.

I’d just like to take a moment to say thank you to Bid for Success. I can honestly say the service was the best I have ever received and what was put together for us, with a ridiculously tight deadline, with the team working late and over the weekend was absolutely first class.

Over the last year Bid for Success has become a truly trusted partner.  As our business has grown they have adapted and supported the group.  Delivering quality outcomes in a flexible hands-on way, they have become an extension of our business. Offering a much wider offering than the “off the shelf” bid writing solution I wouldn’t hesitate in recommending their services.
