Speaker Profile: Jessica Ajayi-Ola Procurement Advisor for Supply Ready.




Jessica joins the Supply Ready team after spending many years managing, coordinating and writing million pound bids and proposals for start-up, not-for-profit and well-established private companies in the UK and USA. Jessica has worked for Manpower Direct UK Ltd, MyLocum and various consultancies as a key component in their respective bid management strategies.

Having worked in a number of sectors, identifying and responding to tender and proposal opportunities, (amongst other things), Jessica was exposed to and developed strategies to overcome many of the challenges that end to end bid management can present to a Business. Jessica’s expertise and knowledge allowed her to develop a deep understanding of all aspects of the process, as well as understanding the key elements buying organisations valued and expected from their suppliers.

Now as part of the Supply Ready team, Jessica is using her extensive and first-hand experience to help growing businesses understand how to participate in the tendering process and secure winning bids.

Her in-depth knowledge of the process and passion for supporting businesses in their B2B growth is evident as within her first three months in the team, Jessica has been able to provide such support and guidance to various companies through her bespoke workshops and dedicated one-to-one sessions that they are now being accepted onto preferred supplier lists, able to identify and analyse tendering opportunities and most importantly confident enough to respond to tenders.
