Opportunity #897244


 Proposal/Presentation Strategist

This C2 Client is seeking an experienced proposal/presentation creating Rock Star! You’re able to craft a proposal or a presentation that grabs attention and wows. You love the chase. You love the hunt. You love the thrill of victory. But you’re not a salesperson, nor are you interested in becoming one. You're smart, you're savvy, you have a strategic mindset (or approach) and the ability to develop strategies, generate ideas and string together strategies, concepts and words and package them in a way that engages, persuades and get results.

You fist pump after coming up with a phrase that you know is so great, your audience will stand up and take notice. You thrive on getting inside your prospects’ minds, getting to know what they need (many times before they do), what they want and then working with the marketing and sales team to build a solution that exceeds those expectations. 

You fancy yourself a thought-leader and your avid reading and ongoing research keep you in front of the curve. You thrive on innovation and bringing new ideas to the table. You look for ways to combine resources so the whole is greater than the sum of the parts.

You're as at home with words on paper as you are with creating a great persuasive presentation, or sometimes even pitching the idea. Deadlines don’t phase you, nor do details – you think big, but sweat the small stuff to make sure everything is letter perfect. You dig into a big assignment and stick with it until it’s the best it can be. You've got what it takes and you do what it takes to win.

You’re equally comfortable leading or collaborating and can hold your own with hard charging, ego driven team members. But your ego gets checked at the door because it’s not about satisfying that ego, it’s ultimately about satisfying that prospect or client. You love crafting the pitch, but you also know that the non-glamor of writing a successful RFI/RFP document can be just as critical and you shine in either scenario.

You've got some experience under your belt. You’ve helped land some really big wins and a couple of big losses, but you pick yourself up, dust yourself off and learn from the experience to emerge stronger and smarter the next time around. You’re impassioned and empowered to always find the right solution. You’re strategic, you’re dynamic, and you're just what we’re looking for!

Your head is in the game, your words speak volumes, and your energy is contagious. You're a Rock Star, and the keyboard and the board room are your stages.


Position Summary:

This position will be key in the engagement and development of new business opportunities through the primary responsibility of development of RFP/RFI documents, presentations and in-person presentations.
