Novus’ Commitment to Training
As part of our commitment to continuous professional development, the six Bid Writers within the team have also been enrolled on APMP Foundation Certification training. The Foundation Certificate is the first of three industry certification standards that combine understanding of best practice and experience as a proven measure of competency.
The skills that they acquire through this training and development activity will prepare them for future opportunities and will improve the likelihood of success at tender stage.
Bid Team Improvements
APMP membership is one of several continuous improvement initiatives currently underway within the Bid Team as they embrace change and equip the Bid Team with the necessary skills, capabilities and resources to support of the future growth and development ambitions of the business.
The global growth of the APMP over recent years is reflective of the increasing emphasis that organisation are placing on their procurement procedures and the associated complexity of their requirements.

It’s also a firm demonstration of Novus’ willingness to create an environment for our people to develop their skills and maximise their potential.”
Rick Harris, Executive Director of APMP International said: –
“Novus have made an important decision on behalf of their company, their employees and their future to invest in professional development in the bid and proposal industry.
