Our Tender Consultancy Team
Vicki Stewart leads Tender Victory and the team of great writers. We all work on a flexible and responsive basis, to ensure that we always meet clients’ needs and those all-important tender deadlines. All writers are experienced and each of them has a proven track record.
Vicki studied English Literature at A level and also at degree level, so has had an interest in the written word since leaving school. After graduating from Bath Spa University College with a 2:1 honours degree, she worked for a film location company writing contracts for film and television crews to film at historic properties. Vicki then moved onto the BBC, where she negotiated and managed the writing of contracts for the Artists (actors, presenters, musicians) who appeared in the BBC programmes and output that she managed.
In 2005 Vicki began working in Public Sector procurement when she took a job with Devon & Cornwall Constabulary. She had a successful start in her new role, being promoted within 6 months of joining the Procurement Department there.
During her time with the Police Vicki managed many tender processes. This involved writing of the PQQ and ITT documentation that was sent out to potential suppliers; constructing the scoring matrices and mechanisms that would be used to evaluate the tenders upon their return; evaluation of the incoming tenders; and also the administration and management of any subsequent evaluation stages such as presentations and site visits. Vicki also attended a number of European Procurement training courses, in addition to achieving her MCIPS qualification.
In 2010 Vicki decided that her knowledge, experience and writing skills would be valued amongst the SMEs and suppliers struggling to get a foothold in the public sector marketplace due to the onerous procurement processes. She chose to leave her Police position and began writing tenders for business right away! A decision she remains delighted with to this day, and has never looked back!
What drives Vicki is ensuring that she and the team deliver a high level of service at a price that is affordable to their clients.
