Role At A Glance 

By combining your stellar writing, communication, and project management skills with your ability to work collaboratively with multiple stakeholders, you will complete winning proposals that will impress our potential clients. The Proposal Specialist leads the pursuit process from start to finish including searching for bids, developing winning pursuit strategies, and the design and submission of the final product. You will also ensure all company materials are kept relevant and current by writing and editing CVs and project profiles, creating marketing packages, designing graphics and layouts, and preparing project interview presentations.

  • You thrive on delivering compelling stories highlighting the experience and abilities of the company  
  • You are a problem solver who will tackle challenges head-on 

 

What You Will Do 

  • You’ll be fully immersed in all aspects of the proposal process including reviewing request for proposal (RFPs) documents, leading strategy meetings, and working closely with internal experts to prepare, write, and edit proposal responses including methodology, approach and schedules. 
  • Prepare proposals that will pique the reader’s interest with strong content that is complemented by your excellent layouts. 
  • Review final proposal documents for compliance and submit to clients on deadline.
  • Scan public tendering sites for RFPs and related opportunities aligned with the firm’s portfolio for the technical team to review.

  • Maintain and update project descriptions, corporate/department profiles, CVs and bios for technical staff, and our photography database.

 

What You Bring to the Table 

  • Proposal management experience in any industry (experience within the construction, architectural and engineering industries would be great, but it isn’t necessary). 
  • Strong writing and editing skills (we love a good word nerd on our team). 
  • Experience in Adobe Creative Suite is considered an asset.  
  • Excellent communication, collaboration, time management, and interpersonal skills. 
  • Proven project management skills and the ability to work in a fast-paced team environment where meeting deadlines is critical.
