The opportunity:
Proposal and Contract Writer

The role:
Reporting to the Director of Operations, the Proposal and Contract Writer is a creative yet technical role, ideally suited to a detail-oriented team player that possesses strong organizational and decision-making skills. It will require the competency to write, edit, proofread and develop clear, convincing proposal content that is technically accurate and clearly communicates the intent of the proposal. The ability to communicate in a professional and credible manner along with being able to write persuasively and articulately are essential.

The focus for this role will be to research, create and present proposals, grants and contracts to customers, potential customers, funding bodies, research groups and partners. Responsibility will include authoring proposals for securing research and subsidy funding as well as bid proposals and requirement documents for potential new customers or vendors.

Daily tasks may include:
• Brainstorming with other team members from sales, development, operations or marketing,
• Handling multiple revisions and edits based on feedback,
• Conducting interviews with internal and external stakeholders,
• Working with management to convey all necessary liabilities and costs of proposed contracts for approval,
• Interpreting technical requirements and objectives of solicitation and applying those to proposals/grants.

The Proposal and Contract Writer will ensure that proposals maintain a consistent tone or voice and develop new common content to be used in RFP/RFI submissions and/or contracts and proposals. This role will work with team members to ensure the technical information is accurate and appropriate for the audience.

Who you are:
You will have experience in all forms of communication and have a strong attention to detail. You are resourceful and at your creative best in a fast-paced dynamic environment while keeping focus on timelines and priorities.

You are confident, flexible, adaptable and adept with communicating effectively with a variety of groups including leadership teams and cross-functional team members from various departments.
You need to possess strong listening skills and be inquisitive to probe with questions. Relationship skills and collaboration are as important as your writing skills and persuasion.

You posses a post-secondary education or equivalent experience, with a focus on business or technical fields. Ideally, you would have experience with sales proposals and grant submissions, with experience in software development and project management styles. Multiple language competency would be considered an asset.

What we offer:
Kognitiv Spark is an exciting company in a thriving emerging industry that is led by an experienced leadership team headquartered in Fredericton, NB. We offer a competitive salary and benefits package but, more importantly, the opportunity to make a lasting impact and push the boundaries of what was previously thought possible.

Our team:
We’re a team of adventurers who are driven by a desire to exceed expectations. We see challenges as opportunities, and never stop at “good enough”. Our people are everything.
We believe in human potential – and that with the power of technology, everyday people can achieve extraordinary things. We are committed to fostering a culture that embraces our core values of integrity, innovation, responsibility, growth and unity of effort.
