Thornton & Lowe was founded in 2009 to help organisations win more formal contract opportunities through the provisions of bid consultancy, training and support. Due to business expansion and demand from our larger clients we have invested and developed a bid recruitment division.

Thornton & Lowe has a wealth of experience in the recruitment, utilities and transport industries, in both the public and private sector.

We have found that some organisations, such as those involved in construction, civil engineering, nuclear, IT, oil and gas, for example, largely need bid writing and management capacity rather than a fully managed bid solution, which is the core business of Thornton & Lowe. Ideally these clients want individuals based at their offices from anything from a few weeks upwards or require support sourcing permanent members of their team.

Thornton & Lowe provide permanent and interim bid recruitment services for both companies and candidates.

Some of the roles we source:

  • Bid Managers
  • Bid Writers
  • Bid Directors
  • Global Bid Specialists
  • Bid Writers/Authors
  • Graphic Designers
  • Subject Matter Experts
  • Content Writers
  • Knowledge Base Writers

  • Bid Editors
  • Proposal Managers
  • Proposal Writers
  • Document Manager
  • Capture Managers
  • Bid Co-ordinators
  • Bid Administrators
  • Pitch Managers

We would be delighted to hear from candidates, so send your CV into and one of our team will be in contact.

The recruitment division is part of the Thornton & Lowe family of businesses and is supported by its in-house directly employed bid support and training team. They provide a full bid management solution to largely small and medium businesses and the NHS. They also provide remote bid writing support, bid coordination and bid reviews for larger construction and civil engineering projects.

We recently utilised the Bid Resource Division of Thornton and Lowe in order to recruit two additional team members for our Bids and Tenders team.

They were successful in sourcing excellent candidates for both Bid Writer and Bid Manager roles.

We were extremely happy with the standard of candidates introduced to us and the service we received.

Consequently, we would have no hesitation in recommending Thornton and Lowe to any companies looking for any assistance with their recruitment of Bids,Tenders and Proposals Specialists.

We would recommend Thornton & Lowe as a specialist bid recruiter having recently worked with them on a bid writer vacancy. We appreciated the professionalism, pragmatism and honesty clearly demonstrated and most importantly we recruited a very good candidate from a small talent pool.
