4 advantages of tendering for HR consultancy tenders you need to know about 

Are you on the fence about bidding for HR consultancy tenders? Do you want to know the advantages of tendering for work before you decide?

In this blog, we look at the key benefits of tendering for work. Keep reading to learn what they are!

  1. Gain tendering experience

When you bid for HR consultancy tenders and win, your business will gain valuable experience in the industry. This will benefit your future tendering efforts, as you need to present relevant case studies to the buyer. So, the more experience you gain, the more experience you’ll be able to demonstrate in your tender responses.

For newer businesses, gaining this experience can be difficult. Typically, buyers will want to see two to three contract examples from the past five years.

To gain experience, we suggest you bid for HR consultancy tenders as part of framework agreements of Dynamic Purchasing Systems. These types of contracts are great for first-time tenderers.

  1. Make contacts 

Bidding for HR consultancy tenders is the perfect way to build relationships with buyers and find opportunities to inter-trade. By establishing a base of contracts, you can grow your business, expand your horizons, and collaborate with other businesses.

It’s also a good way to find buyers that can provide you with more opportunities to bid for.

  1. The government wants to award SMEs 

If you’re bidding for HR consultancy tenders in the public sector, then this is a particularly attractive benefit.

Many SMEs assume they don’t stand a chance against their larger competition. However, the UK government has a target to spend at least £1 in every £3 on smaller businesses. So, they’re actively seeking to award contracts to smaller businesses.

  1. Guaranteed pay (in the public sector)

Another benefit of bidding for public HR consultancy tenders is that suppliers are guaranteed payment. This is because buyers in the public sector are bound by their contractual agreements. This gives suppliers peace of mind that they will receive payment for any work carried out in the public sector.

However, it’s important to note that private sector buyers aren’t bound by the same contractual agreements. This is something to keep in mind when bidding for HR consultancy tenders in the private sector.

In summary

There are many advantages of tendering for work. If you’re on the fence about bidding for HR consultancy tenders, perhaps these benefits can help you decide:

  • Suppliers can gain tendering experience
  • It’s a great way to make contacts
  • The UK government wants to award SMEs (they’ve set a target of £1 in every £3)
  • Suppliers are guaranteed payment (in the public sector).
