New ally for recruitment companies seeking to win public sector contracts

Recruitment companies seeking to improve their chances of winning public sector contracts through tenders have a new ally with the launch of

The online service, which went live this month, will serve the needs of both under-pressure in-house tender writers and those companies which haven’t the time or experience to develop a winning tender document.

As well as providing daily tender suggestions,’s team of account handlers and experienced tender writers also offer tender writing, tender checking and training to companies that register with the site.

“We’ve all seen the effect of public sector cuts,” Snap Edition’s managing director Gordon Hosie. “The austerity measures aren’t just effecting consumers, they are making life equally difficult for companies. We’ve seen the competition for tenders rise significantly over the last year. Public sector organisations are increasingly seeking best value and more and more companies are going for the tenders that are issued, which means competition is increasing.

“Having the best possible tender submission is essential. That’s why we’ve assembled a team of 20, vastly experienced tender writers, many of whom have worked in the public sector receiving tender submissions, and combined their skills with a consultancy side to the business, which sees personal account managers actively seeking out relevant tender opportunities for clients.”

Snap-Edition is offering three packages: free, ad-hoc and retained. The free service allows people to create an account and receive notifications of relevant tenders as soon as they are published. The ad hoc package offers access to the full service as and when required and is designed for companies that are just starting to explore tendering or won’t be responding to many opportunities. For organisations wanting to target tenders on a regular basis, offers two subscription levels, both providing credits which can be spent on tender writing and tender checking.

With the subscription package clients are assigned a personal account manager, who becomes part of their team, monitoring, evaluating and recommending opportunities to tender as they are published.

When a client registers they are asked to supply the most commonly requested information found in pre-qualification questionnaires (for first stage in the majority of tenders), along with basic information about the company, its team, products and services. Having these details on file makes it quicker and easier for’s tender writers to produce draft document whenever a client decides to pursue an identified tender opportunity. 

“The whole process takes place in the cloud,” explains Gordon. “We’ve invested significantly in developing a system which is quick, reliable and secure. All of the documents are stored online for clients to access and approve. And we’re also offering telephone support through the personal account management team to ensure everything runs smoothly. We launched this month and have already helped several companies submit successful tender bids, so we know we’re offering a valuable service to companies seeking to improve their chance of winning business.”
