any tips for recruiting RFP response writers? it's not s typical ad/writing gig, so trying to figure out what talent pool makes the most sense.

I’m a seasoned RFP writer on a biz dev team that does that on a freelance capacity. We’re out there.

I’ve never worked with just an RFP writer - it might be easier to find a biz dev person. From my limited view only writing RFPs would feel like a very limiting career track, making it hard to recruit talent

I'd start by looking at LinkedIn. there are tons of RFP response writers, but they're more likely to be called Proposal Writers, Senior Proposal Writers, Pursuit Managers, or Proposal Managers. You'd be surprised by how many there are and how in demand they are because it's such a niche career skill, but one that's needed in almost every organization. Good luck!

KPMG - if you hit the bench and are on there for too long and have to get let go- do we get a severance package? And if so - what does that look like?
