A fresh university graduate “confessed” in recent post on the company’s website about his training as a tender writer for Executive Compass – nothing beats kinaesthetic learning paired with personal instruction from the masters.

The young man chose to work for Executive Compass out of university instead of doing manual labour at a popular fast food outlet – and wondered why. After securing a degree, he did not count on the six months of his apprenticeship with the bid management company and being under the wings of the masters to be more packed with lessons compared to the three years he devoted to his tertiary education. Intense mental flexibility was required to accommodate all the information in such a short span of time and being thrust into the system relatively early. Naturally, the “burger-flipping” job seemed more ideal – certainly beats “thumbing through an invitation to tender for the provision of domiciliary care services!”

The personal approach is not something that a lot of companies employ in training new recruits. Often, the tricks of the trade are highly guarded and kept within the business; training newbies can be purely theoretical. Executive Compass is different; it invests completely in training highly-qualified trainees like the young man who even shares in his post, “I have been working alongside Michael and Neil, shadowing them as they work through submissions, absorbing as much as possible as I see the tender being put together in front of me. I have also been left to my own devices in managing my own clients and completing PQQs on their behalf, with Michael and Neil reviewing my completed documents to ensure that their quality is of a level they themselves would be happy to submit. I have been getting my hands dirty recently, writing policies for a client, under the watchful eye of Michael; and to date I have successfully completed writing a Health & Safety Policy, Environmental Policy, Equality & Diversity Policy and A Business Continuity Plan! Writing all of these is proving to be an immensely informative part of my training.”

The personal approach allows for more exposure and it effectively prepares trainee tender writers for the real gig, giving them enough confidence and solid knowledge to be successful in their first official effort. The trainee also adds, “I also have the opportunity to shadow Michael as he travels around the UK delivering training workshops to companies of all shapes and sizes from all industries, which is a real eye opener and not only a great way to learn about the processes that should be adopted for successful PQQ, Bid and Tender writing but also to see the master at work!”

The trainee claims that he still has some more learning to do but the path to becoming a bid writing professional is already set for him. There’s no other better place to learn than Executive Compass, UK’s top-notch bid management company.
