Trainee/Graduate Tender & Bid Researcher/Writer

Job Type: Full Time

Location: CCS HQ – Watford

Salary: £23k – £25k (depending on experience)

Responsible to: Managing Director

Are you interested in researching and writing compelling, persuasive text? With an interest in the healthcare industry that is looking for your next opportunity and looking to grow? We have a brand new and exciting opportunity to be part of Concept Care Solutions.

You will receive one-to-one training covering methods for researching specifications and preparing storyboards and answer plans; how to deconstruct questions; persuasive, evidence-based writing styles; and advanced writing techniques to develop you into a professional writer.

Once qualified, your primary role will be to write persuasive, compelling and detailed responses to tender questions on behalf of CCS and clients, all of whom organisations are submitting bids (proposals) to various buyers in the Health & Social Care Sector.

To do so, you will be supported to gather high-quality information from the Internal Bid/tender lead or the external client, as well as undertaking your own research. Once trained and confident, you will provide end-to-end support, managing the whole process on behalf of the Internal Bid/Tender Lead or external client and guiding them through the process.

We, therefore, require a candidate who will be able to research and write compelling, persuasive text across a very wide-ranging field of businesses and functions. As this is a trainee/Graduate role, you will not necessarily be expected to have any prior knowledge or experience of the various topics in the Health & Social Care Sector, but you must be a skilled and confident writer, with an appropriate vocabulary and an eagerness to learn.

We work in a very fast-paced environment and once fully trained, you will be assisting and go on to writing multiple bids concurrently whilst simultaneously managing both internal and external clients and their expectations. The role, therefore, requires you to be hardworking with excellent attention to detail, as well as an ability to work independently and manage your own workload, but support is always available via the team of fellow bid writers and managers. Some work outside of typical office hours may occasionally be required.


  • You will be required to gather evidence through research and assist with the bid writing process. 
  • Creating business-winning written responses that support and maximise their likelihood of success.
  • Assisting in Project managing the process from end-to-end
  • Using your own initiative, prioritising, and ensuring that submission deadlines are always met.
  • Speaking with internal bid/tender writers and external clients and helping to manage client relationships.
  • Helping to maintain bid libraries (records of documentation relevant to each client)

Concept Care Solutions (CCS) is a Platinum-rated registered agency supplying Healthcare Professionals internationally and nationally in partnerships with the NHS, Private Hospitals and Health Clinics, Local Authorities, Health Authorities and Individuals.
