About us

Changing Lives is a nationwide charity helping people facing the most challenging of circumstances to make positive change - for good. We believe that everyone deserves a safe home, a rewarding job and a life free from addiction or abuse. We know that given the right support, anyone can change their life for the better.

Our services across the country help thousands of people each year who are experiencing a wide range of complicated challenges, including homelessness, drug and alcohol addiction, unemployment, involvement with the criminal justice system, sexual exploitation and domestic abuse. By focusing on their strengths, potential and opportunities, we support the people we work with to overcome their problems and live safe, successful, independent lives.

Our charity is powered by over 600 passionate colleagues who bring a diverse and inclusive environment for our colleagues to grow. We are proud to say that many have actual lived experience of the challenges faced by those we support.  We are looking for committed and compassionate professionals to join our team, who share our enthusiasm for changing lives.


About the Job

We are looking to appoint a Bid Writer to be part of a developing team, focusing on a new strategic vision together. Working alongside a team of Bid Managers and Bid Writers, the role will focus on the co-ordination and completion of tender submissions to Local Authorities and other statutory bodies, and grant applications to charitable Trusts and Foundations.

The Bid Writer role requires someone who can write effective, concise, and compelling content for a range of diverse audiences. The role will work with other bid writers and mangers in the team to effectively coordinate and support all business development activity. Being able to work as part of a team is therefore essential, as is the ability to communicate well with a range of stakeholders and audiences both internally and externally. This is a role that requires an ability to produce high quality work across a number of competing deadlines.

Within this role we welcome agile working, flexible working hours, including condensed hours.
