THE COMPANY

 

A leader within the delivery of global events, this company aims to deliver an unforgettable experience to each and every client they work with.  Although the team is small, the events they deliver are huge, working with budgets and delegate numbers of up to 1000. If you are looking for a chance to shine, this is the company to join!

THE ROLE

Due to some exciting growth plans, we are now recruiting a Proposal Writer for this busy agency to work within the sales and operations teams.  Working on proposals for both new and existing clients, the role will entail a host of destination research, supplier management and creative writing to support the sales strategy and drive new events through the agency.

THE CANDIDATE

Ideally we are looking for candidates currently working within a Proposal Writer role at the moment, or as an Event Manager who has created proposals within their role and no longer looking to do the end to end delivery of events.  An understanding of events from an operational perspective would be essential!.
