The BidCraft ethos

The name says it all – we’re craft people who want to be the best we can be. We see bidding as an art form. It’s about blending a mix of ingredients into something crafted, tailored, and amazing. For us to succeed, we must be different and offer something better.

The BidCraft drive

We believe there’s a gap between bidding theory and bidding practice. We want to make the bidding world better for everyone by challenging old practices and delivering better outcomes for our clients. That’s why we’re behind the initiative with BSI to develop an international standard for Bid & Proposal Management – we don’t settle, we make change.

The BidCraft culture

We are a company with a social conscience. Kindness, empathy and sharing are fundamental characteristics that not only feel good, but they make a big impact on the people we work with. What’s most important is that we do the right thing.This means earning our client’s trust, giving back for the environment (see Ecologi), the profession (see APMP), and people in need (see whatimpact). 

Craft-people at heart

The BidCraft crew

We’re a team that loves to go beyond the bland, always sweats the details and never settles. We’re a company of leaders, who work hard on our craft and love what we do.

Our contribution

Supporting trusted climate projects

We care about doing the right thing, so we’re proud to work with Ecologi to help fund carbon offset projects and responsible tree planting around the world. We’re offsetting our carbon emissions and becoming a carbon positive workforce by growing the BidCraft company forest.

Every time someone becomes a Crafter, we enrol them into Ecologi, which funds climate solutions around the world. And whenever someone buys one of our APMP certification courses, we fund even more tree planting.

If you want to sign up, then use this link and Ecologi will plant an extra 30 trees as a thank you.

We plant trees with Ecologi

Contributing to society

The voluntary, community and social enterprise (VCSE) sector does amazing work to help people and communities who need extra support. That’s why we’ve partnered with whatimpact who match companies like BidCraft to local social value initiatives to make a difference.

We volunteer our time and expertise to train VCSEs on the art of grant writing and we also review grant applications, helping to guide you in the right direction and secure precious funding.

If you’re a VCSE who would like to apply for our voluntary support, then sign-up to whatimpact and they’ll do the rest.

What’s it like being a Crafter? expand

If you’ve ever dreamed of being part of something that does things differently, then that’s what it feels like.

Crafters innovate, test themselves, learn new skills, and never settle.

It’s hard work and everyone puts a shift in, but the rewards are amazing. We treat people as professional adults who don’t need micro-managing. In fact, we want people with a diversity of experience and thought who keep us on our toes. Echo chambers are a dangerous thing.

We innovate because we’re curious and want to deliver better outcomes for our clients. 

If something doesn’t exist, create it. If something doesn’t work, fix it. If something works, share it.
