ITS is looking for Proposal Engineers.
Are you driven by a 'can do' attitude and eager to expand your skills? We're looking for someone self-disciplined, self-motivated, and always aiming for excellence. You should be a proactive leader, keen to contribute to our core values, and not just wait for instructions. Your attention to detail and strong communication skills, both in writing and speaking, are essential.
Your interpersonal skills should be outstanding, coupled with effective time management and planning abilities. A curious mind, committed to solution selling, and flexibility are crucial. Experience in sales, proposals, or CRM systems like SAGE CRM is a plus, but not mandatory. An engineering background, especially in automation or process control systems, is highly desirable.
In this role, you'll be responsible for creating detailed technical proposals, ranging from PLC and SCADA systems to full turnkey solutions. Collaboration with sales teams and customers to understand and exceed expectations is key. Accuracy in proposals and strong written English skills are critical. You'll also manage quotation cost spreadsheets and liaise with suppliers and engineering for accurate tendering. Building and maintaining professional customer relationships, and responding promptly to their needs, is a vital part of the role.
Working for the Senior Proposals Manager, you will be part of a company that is committed to building long term mutual relationships with customers, and responsible for maintaining support to the many clients we have worked with since the company was formed in 1991. ITS’ team strives to understand our clients’ needs and work closely with them to provide high quality proposals and solutions that meet and exceed expectations.
We strongly believe in getting to know our clients and their teams, and what their needs are so that we can form solid partnerships that deliver a win-win situation for both the customer and ITS.
