When we recruit we look firstly for Talent: We want people who can do a particular thing particularly well, so don’t be shy to show us. We look for an attitude that challenges assumptions, and we look for a determination to excel. A little humour is allowed too. We find that people who bring these qualities to our team enjoy themselves here regardless of the role they play.
If you like the sound of this, and think that you have something special to offer our team and our clients, we’d like to hear from you. Current vacancies are noted below, and if one of them takes your fancy, please do apply. If there are no vacancies shown, get in touch anyway. No harm making the introduction after all.
We are currently recruiting for two Bid Writers to join our team. This is a demanding role, carrying the responsibility for delivering our promise to our clients. Our clients come from all sectors, private and public, all shapes and sizes, but each has the same reason for partnering with us: The Win, and we are relentless in our pursuit of it.
The Ideal Candidate
You believe Boilerplates are for Boilers, and are turned on by the chance to write a unique piece of work on every project. You want to test yourself against the competition in sectors as diverse as Healthcare, Professional Services, FM, and R&D, and are determined to reset the standard. Above all, you want to be one of the best.
You will be an enterprising and energetic team player, with good commercial experience in any sector, and a natural talent for producing purposeful and persuasive writing. Our Writers need to have something to say, and so we value your life experience as much as your writing skills.
If that sounds like you, please get in touch.
We offer a competitive salary, performance related bonus, a stimulating working environment and, periodically, replacement seats for your pants. [We also like a little humour]. The job is office based in Melton Mowbray.

You will be based in our head office in Melton Mowbray. If you don't want to live and work in the East Midlands, please don't apply. On the other hand, if you like pork pies and stilton cheese this could be the start of a beautiful friendship.( cf. humour)
