Stantec Proposal Specialist in BROOMFIELD, Colorado
Proposal Specialist - ( 21000136 )
At Stantec, we believe growing a great engineering, consulting and construction services company happens from the inside out. As a global community of approximately 22,000 employees that design with community in mind, we look for people who are drawn to use every talent they possess, plus imagination, determination, and a drive to do the extraordinary. If building on your talents through a premier knowledge-sharing culture and connecting across borders with some of the world’s top talent appeals to you, join us.
Are you curious, enjoy organizing, and have a knack for translating technical information into a compelling story? If yes, this position could be the right fit for your unique skill set. We are seeking a Proposal Specialist to join our Creative Services sales and marketing team. Our team’s primary focus is winning work related to top, strategic water infrastructure projects, and to assist in marketing communication projects, and deliverables. Proposal Specialists in our group work collaboratively within a team to clearly communicate sales strategies and highly technical concepts in SOQs/proposals. The SOQs/proposals range from 15 to 350 pages and project fee values from $1 million to over $100 million.
Your Key Responsibilities
There are several task areas for this position, and it varies by proposal; that means there is plenty of opportunity to build a strong foundation of skills in research, writing and project management. Our work is fast-paced, deadline-driven and team focused. We like to win. And we like to be both creative and process driven so we have a baseline standard for quality and efficiency. Tasks range from: researching and writing/editing resumes and project descriptions to dissecting client requirements and tracking compliance; organizing and managing tasks to creating project management status reports; supporting strategy sessions to facilitating data calls with partnering firms -- and all of this while learning about water engineering and the construction industry.
Proposal/Project Coordination and Support – Within the proposal process, you will independently lead or work with a proposal manager to create SOQs, proposals, and oral presentations of varying complexity. You will perform and oversee research projects and actively support our information management systems. (And, on occasion, there will be other marketing projects to support and coordinate.) The SOQs and proposals vary from qualifications-based documents to multiple volume proposals containing resumes, project descriptions, technical approaches, and cost/schedule information. In a team setting that includes marketing/sales professionals, visual designers and technical experts, you will help bring content to life through compelling writing and visuals. Details are important in this job since our documents must be compliant and meet the exact client requirements. Our team prides itself on outstanding work and excellent customer service; you will need to as well!
Proposal Writing/Editing and Information Management – This is not a cut and paste job. Although we have a lot of reference information, we are working on strategic pursuits, so our content is customized to the specific job and client. You must enjoy pulling together written elements – researching, writing/rewriting or editing – for inclusion in a larger document. We use style guides to maintain consistency with Stantec’s voice and brand. With 22,000 people and growing, there are a lot of wonderful stories to be researched and captured for use in proposals. Similar to a journalist you will interview people to create content. We are sticklers about deconstructing information into the appropriate servers and databases so we can use on future pursuits. Information management, meaning helping to add, clean and maintain the databases and server areas, is a natural partnership with the research that is performed in this role.
Your Capabilities and Credentials
Must have intermediate/advanced skills with Microsoft Office products (Word, Excel, PowerPoint, SharePoint) on a PC platform. Experience with Adobe Creative Cloud (InDesign) is a plus, but not required.
Excellent organizational skills, written and verbal communication skills (including proofreading and phone etiquette)
Willingness to learn about sales strategy, proposal development, and the A/E/C industry.
Travel requirement may range from 1% to 4%.
Education and Experience
Bachelor’s Degree required; journalism/communications, English, business marketing or applicable technical/scientific discipline is preferred.
Minimum of 0-4 years of performing similar duties.
