Claire has been a member of the APMP since 2012, achieving Practitioner status in 2015. She has previously volunteered as part of the ‘Trailblazer Group’ responsible for developing the first apprenticeship programme for the bid and proposal profession within the UK. Claire has 10 years’ experience working across a range of sectors, and has held a number of senior Bid Management roles for Lloyds Banking Group, NG Bailey and Accent on Training Limited. She is passionate about bid and proposals, and making it a career path of choice, and is excited to support the development of opportunities for young people, within a profession that spans multiple industries.
Claire managed the world’s first Bid and Proposal Apprenticeship at NG Bailey, and is well placed to drive through the Bid and Proposal Coordinator Apprenticeship. Working with the wider trailblazer team, she hopes to develop the Apprenticeship Director portfolio by continuing to build on the great work done so far to further embed the scheme and raise awareness across industries.
Claire is currently on maternity leave, and so our thanks to Jane Matthews, Acting Apprenticeships & Development Director
