How to Write a Winning Proposal

6 ways to get project notifications

We send notification emails out to the talent that has the closest match to the project requirements. The better your Talent Passport fits the brief, the more likely you will be notified. Follow these 6 tips for Talent Passport matching greatness:

  1. Make sure that your Talent Passport is filled in and up-to-date.
  2. Make sure your experience and background match the type of projects you want
  3. Check you have specified the languages you can work in
  4. Check the locations you are available to work in are clear on your profile
  5. Make sure your Talent Passport is relevant for the projects you want
  6. And remember, don’t over apply or apply for things you think ‘you might be ok for’.

What to Do

  1. Sell yourself in 500 characters, highlighting your skills and background
  2. Avoid using single statements like “Please refer to my CV” – be specific about what makes you stand out
  3. Take the time to write a strong and pithy summary

The Proposal - Questions to ask yourself...

  1. Have I taken a clear approach outlining the steps I would take to deliver the project?
  2. Have I listed the key deliverables the client will receive at the end?
  3. Have I outlined why I am suitable to undertake this project?
  4. Does my Talent Passport show the type of clients I’ve worked for and how recently, as well industry and functional similarities and what the output was?

Things to Include in Your Proposal

Duration – provide an estimate of how long the project will take to complete.
Cost – propose a day rate or fixed cost.
Location – clarify that you can be where the client needs you.
Language – clarify you can meet these requirements.
