Job Description

excelITR is seeking a Proposal Writer for our internal IT Services Staffing Division. Your main goal in this role will be to showcase the experience and abilities of our qualified candidates in clear and effective responses to Requests for Proposals. This will occasionally require powers of deduction, along with a bit of detective work, as you gain a clear understanding of each opportunity and work together with our recruiters to propose the winning candidate.

You need to be able to organize your time efficiently, as you manage multiple amendments on multiple bids, simultaneously.

This position requires strong problem-solving abilities as well as a commitment to Altis/Excel’s Standard of Excellence for proposals. It’s important that as a member of our team you bring your “A-game” every day with a growth mindset, operating ethically and consultatively, while contributing to our Company Culture and to the community at large.
