Consultancy - Commercial Tenders




Consultancy Daily Rate

We have an opportunity for a consultant to provide advisory and technical assistance to CARE staff on DFID commercial proposals.

We are a long-time recipient of DFID funding; however increased competition for funding and evolving commercial requirements of DFID tenders require additional expertise to build CARE’s capacity to develop competitive commercial proposals. 

We are looking for a consultant with strong experience of commercial tender development with DFID to provide advisory services, training and technical assistance on DFID commercial proposals for CARE UK staff involved in developing proposals.  The consultant will review recent tender documents and provide feedback to improve our competitiveness. 

You will work with our staff to develop a commercial response methodology which can be applied to future tender exercises.  There is also the possibility of future work on direct proposals. 

We invite applications from a range of individuals who would like to work with us on this assignment and we can consider remote consultancy for this assignment.
