Biography

I am an experienced and skilled bid manager with thirteen years’ experience in successful bid writing and management of multi-million pound contracts. I have won business with central government departments, local government, and have won contracts on behalf of clients in the following fields:

• Print management
• Business process outsourcing
• Financial services
• Commercial lighting
• Legal
• Care homes
• Domiciliary care

For the past few years I have specialised in public sector bids and am fully conversant with EU procurement rules and their ramifications on public sector bidding; I am also up to speed on the government briefing on procurement plans following Brexit.

Additionally, I have over ten years’ experience as an account manager, meeting customer needs, whilst ensuring that the company’s commercial interests are maintained. I have excellent project management skills and am a well organised team player.

I am an active member of the APMP (Association of Proposal Management Professionals) and am certified as a bid manager by this organisation.
