SMEs across Greater Birmingham will be given the chance to grow and improve sales as a result of a new agreement between bid writing specialists Think Tenders and official inward investment agency Business Birmingham.
The project will offer up to 120 SMEs a range of free support services via the European Regional Development Fund Investing in The City Region project.
Think Tenders will provide bid writing support on behalf of Business Birmingham and its delivery partners. This will consist of nine hours of consultancy by skilled professionals with over 25 years of tendering and bid writing experience.
SMEs will be able to benefit from Think Tenders’ expertise in tender writing across a variety of sectors, including recruitment, catering, law, niche SME organisations, and more.
Each SME will receive support specifically tailored to their business needs: from setting up internal procedures for tender process novices to improving win rates for more experienced bidders.
Amanda Goode, Director of Think Tenders, said: “I’m delighted to be part of this project. There has never been a better time to tender to the public sector, so for SMEs that are serious about growing their businesses and securing public sector contracts, now is the time to act.
“Delivering a successful tender process enables organisations to achieve sustainable business success and increased employment opportunities, and I’m looking forward to making a real difference to local businesses by helping them on the road to tender success.”
SMEs that would like access to my bid writing support through this funding should contact Business Birmingham by emailing Laura Hadley-Hall or calling Laura on 0121 202 5138.
