With the support of our Senior Specialists, you will learn the ins and outs or proposal writing and learn all about architecture, engineering, and construction in the process. You will also work to ensure company marketing materials are kept relevant and current, including writing and editing CVs and project profiles, creating marketing packages, designing graphics and layouts, writing blogs, and preparing presentations.

  • You are an excellent communicator who is eager to share ideas and contribute to our company vision and culture .

What You Will Do 

  • You’ll be fully immersed in all aspects of the proposal process including reviewing request for proposal (RFP) 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 through strong content 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 sales strategy for the technical team to review.  
  • Provide quality assurance checks for proposals and marketing materials created by team members.  
  • Create presentations to support our pursuit team during the project interview process.  
  • Provide marketing support and assistance to the sales team in their pursuit of new business.  
  • Maintain and update project descriptions, corporate/department profiles, CVs and bios for technical staff, and our photography database. 
  • Other marketing duties as needed to support our team. 

What You Bring to the Table 

  • Strong writing and editing skills (we love a good word nerd on our team).  
  • Experience in Adobe Creative Suite, particularly InDesign, 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.  
  • Proposal management experience in any industry would be great, but it isn’t necessary.
