An important part of your role would be to get to know these different opportunities and assess them based on the size of the prize, fit with the client’s objectives and competencies or a different set of criteria they agree with the client.
  • Writing creative briefs
    And working with the creative team to deliver comms platforms and campaigns.
  • Writing proposals and supporting the client services team in scoping of projects
