We are looking for a dynamic and highly motivated Proposal Coordinator to join a specialist team of in-house Proposal Specialists who help win work for Kasian. As a Proposal Coordinator, you will play a key role in shaping and supporting the proposal team’s goal of producing winning submissions. You will be responsible for the administrative aspects of proposal development—from managing the SharePoint site to coordinating proposal inputs/reviews and leading and supporting proposal pursuits. This is where your organizational skills, “can do” attitude, and keen attention to detail will contribute to the success of the pursuit teams! Quality is critical —you will ensure that our proposals are compliant, error-free, client-focused, compelling, easy to evaluate, and visually appealing.   While being in or near one of our 7 major city center locations is an asset, it is not a requirement to become a part of our team. Kasian’s approach to a hybrid work environment allows applicants to join our proposal team from across the country, supporting our endeavours to connect and collaborate over multiple time zones by giving the flexibility of working from home. This fosters the spirit of inclusion and opens the opportunity for diverse perspectives to impact and shape our delivery model and grow the culture of our company.
