As part of the National Bidding and Submissions team, you will closely partner with Opportunity Leaders across our multi-disciplinary business to support the preparation and delivery of compelling proposals and other client-facing documentation for projects across the Transport and Civil Infrastructure, Urban Development, Power & Energy and Environmental Science sectors. 

Daily, you may be involved in;

  • Plan win themes, value propositions and other differentiators our initial proposal outlines

About You

We work in a fast paced, friendly and flexible environment where SMEC values are at the forefront of all that we do. As such, we are interested in meeting candidates who take a collaborative approach to work yet understand the value their input has on the overall success of the business.

  • Strong verbal and written communication skills
  • Ability to generate creative ideas and transfer these to persuasive written material
  • Excellent stakeholder engagement skills
  • Strong aptitude for improving organisation, flow, readability, completeness, and clarity of technically intensive proposals
  • High level attention to detail
