On 4 September 2023, four bid writers started at EiB. Over the next two years, they will be supported by EiB’s professional head for graduate development through a structured programme, introducing the ‘EiB way’ as our market leading end-to-end bid management and writing approach.

Poppy, Annie and Charles will be based in Birmingham, and Deborah will be based in our Edinburgh office, joining our Scottish team. Although these locations are across the UK, EiB fosters a hybrid-working model, which enables all our bid professionals to work flexibly from home, in our dedicated offices across the UK and where required, co-locating with clients at their offices or sites.

All four writers will be supported with continuing professional development. This includes Association of Proposal Management Professionals (APMP) qualifications, strengthening their industry knowledge and any further qualifications with accredited bodies such as the Chartered Institute of Marketing and the Chartered Management Institute.

They will also be mentored by a member of our board as part of our director mentoring programme. This will provide an opportunity for joint learning, problem solving and career development.

EiB’s CEO, Scott Brown, commented, “I am really pleased to welcome our four new bid writers to the EiB team. This demonstrates our commitment to the ongoing growth of our fully employed team, now 35 bid professionals. It will position us to respond to our extensive pipeline of upcoming opportunities. I look forward to supporting Annie, Charles, Deborah and Poppy to develop their exceptional skills in bid writing and solution development across the range of sectors EiB supports.”
