  • Run robust go/no-go discussions prior to client pursuits
  • Facilitate tender debriefs with proposal teams and, when appropriate, clients
  • Contribute to the enhancement of proposal management processes, templates, content and credentials through Salesforce and a new brand management platform

Skills & experience

  • Experience within professional services or a B2B environment preferred but not essential
  • Highly organised with excellent attention to detail
  • Specialist Industry or Sector focus preferred
