At Thornton & Lowe we regularly are asked to source high quality freelance bid writers for client requirements. The Bid Resource Team at Thornton & Lowe manage this request for freelance Bid Writers and Freelance Bid Managers


What is a freelance bid writer?

A freelancer bid writer is a self-employed person offering services in bid writing, usually to businesses and often to multiple clients at a time. The type of work freelancers do will vary. Nearly every type of service a business would need could be provided by a freelancer but specifically in the world of bid writing, freelance bid writers will give businesses support when they need it most say maybe when they have a peak or a big tender on.

How can I find a freelance bid writer?

We would always recommend that when looking for a freelance bid writer or freelance bid manager that you get in contact with a professional bid resource company who will have access to quality candidates that have been tested and proven.

Presently, our bid resource team has access to a managed database of over 700 bid professionals which we can segment and find you the person you’re looking for in a matter of minutes.

All you need to do is let us know your location, sector and length of time you require support and we can come back to you with a shortlist of potential candidates and their rates.

Speaking to our customers, we can gain a better understanding of what it is you require and then find the most suitable freelance bid support.

There are so many benefits to using freelance bid writers and bid managers. The nature of our industry means most businesses have peaks and troughs and freelance or interim bid writing support can be just the ticket for your proposal writing projects.

Freelance bid writers can also bring an outsiders expert viewpoint and constructive critique, to add value as well as just bid capacity.

One of the perceived downfalls of freelance bid writers and freelance staff generally, is the lack of consistency as they will constantly be looking for the next job but for us this is not the case. Each bid is treated with the same approach, professionalism and of course they are going to want to give it their all because their success rate is a direct reflection on them. Rest assured we only work with professional bid freelancers.

At Thornton & Lowe we manage, provide continuity and quality assurance for our freelance team to ensure, as far as possible, progress made on a single bid and lessons learned are not lost on each new project or with each new freelance member of the team.
