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.

Mission. Ethos. Culture

Less talk. More action.

Our mission is to demystify the art of winning business by sharing knowledge, being responsive, and taking pride in our craft. We find this mindset leads to trusted relationships with clients who enjoy working with us.

Based in the UK and Australia, we are known for consistently punching above our weight. We can back this up, too. As the instigator and technical author of BSI PAS 360:2023 – the only international code of practice for bid and proposal management – we have literally set the standard for bidding, whether you’re an SME or a multinational.

We are also an approved training organisation (with globally available training) for the industry association (APMP – association of proposal management professionals), and we launched the International Day for Bids and Proposals on 29th September every year. #Septender

Our ethos
As a team of bidding artisans our ethos is to make a sustainable contribution to your business growth. We see bidding as an art form. It’s about blending a mix of ingredients into something crafted, tailored, and amazing.
Our 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.

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.

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.
