About Creative Tenders
Creative Tenders is a part of the wider Hudson Procurement Group - a company focused on growing and developing every business it engages with.
We formally launched Hudson in 2016, followed by 12 months of extensive research and technical testing of our Hudson Discover products. This does not mean that development is finished. We have a very exciting plan in place for the future of this platform and the development of all our products under Hudson Discover, which were developed between 2016-2018, including Research Tenders, Consultancy Tenders and HR Tenders.
Hudson has been launched to change the way business is done in the UK and then internationally. We want to do this to help grow our leading industries in the UK and help drive new business opportunities to SMEs. We will do this by sourcing sector specific tenders, quickly and efficiently, proactively sourcing private sector opportunities that will not be posted on any other site, and by helping potential clients to specify their needs and source a supplier from our network of subscribers.
Our founders John and Jill Hudson have had an extremely successful career in the UK over the last decade and they have recruited an internal team capable of having complex conversations with buyers both in the UK and internationally.
OUR PORTAL AND FUTURE PRODUCTS
Creative Tenders was developed to support creative sector businesses in finding new business opportunities in the UK. With a team of Opportunity Trackers working daily to source relevant tenders, our clients can simply log in to the platform and filter tenders using simple keywords, budgets and locations.
In 2020 we will be launching Tender Bank, helping to store tender information in one central place and Procure Smart, a portal aimed at the public and corporate sectors with the core goal of improving the way tendering is done. It is our goal to create a more fair and open process, removing any misconceptions that tendering has had over the last decade.
Bringing this all together is Hudson Discover, our inter-trading platform which allows buyers to become suppliers and suppliers to become buyers. Our Hudson Discover portals allow people to proactively and effectively buy from one another to ensure value for money and quality service.
Hudson is a global provider of tendering and procurement solutions. Our products and services inspire all size businesses to adopt best practice.
Our Group is split into 8 strands. Discover, Succeed, Procure and Invest was our original offering, helping procurement departments and business owners adopt best practice solutions and innovative technology when either buying or supplying products and services.
Our Group then further evolved to include Grow, Employ, Labs and Initiative. These new strands help us become world leaders in buy and supply products and services.
All whilst developing new technology and giving something back to the community to ensure the AI solutions we develop do not replace jobs but instead open up new opportunities for building careers.
Our team was built from the ground up. We work to structured processes, encourage learning and development at all levels and adopt a Customer First approach to client management and this has been proved through our successful awards for Service Delivery.
Hudson promises you two things. Firstly, ‘we will keep evolving for the benefit of our clients’ and secondly ‘we will continue to focus on ensuring fairer and more transparent procurement practices are embedded into public organisations’.
We want to help you Discover, Succeed, Procure and Invest, all whilst helping you to Grow, Employ the right people, maximise technology through Hudson Labs and caring about the future of your workforce via Hudson Initiative.
We don’t just care about our clients, we care about creating long term sustainable businesses and protecting careers.
Hudson Discover helps businesses to access tendering opportunities that are specific to their sector. We have 10 industry portals and will soon launch our United Portal which includes opportunities from all business sectors as well as Discover 2.0, incorporating a more robust search function, AI tools and an increase of private buyers.

Hudson Invest is currently in development and upon launch will help large corporate businesses and SMEs with the insight needed to make important business decisions and help decision makers with predicting future buying habits. This will allow clients to make insightful decisions about how and where to invest.
Hudson Grow, supports global businesses with structured growth planning and implementation. This service allows us to get to the route of problems that are hindering a business’ chance of growth. Services offered include strategic and board support, non-exec directors posts, mentoring senior team members and solution based guidance.
Hudson Employ helps businesses across the globe to find suitable bid writing and procurement talent. Hudson Academy recruit’s talent from UK Universities and puts them through robust training specific to the role they want to master, before placing candidates into businesses. Clients also require standardised recruitment support for experienced personnel which we can assist with.
Hudson Labs develops world leading technology associated with both the buy and supply side of business. Solutions that enter Hudson Labs may never come out of R&D, others will flourish and become commercial products as a part of the wider Hudson group. Hudson Labs is currently looking into developing AI, VR and IoT solutions.
Hudson Initiative allows us to give something back. We believe that everyone should be able to build a better life. Therefore 5% of profit made from our AI solutions will feed back into the community by developing training, support and guidance for those who want to make a difference to their own lives.
