Looking for the Brightest!

This is not just another proposal manager position. Nope! It's a call for the best. At Layton, when we say we strive for excellence in everything we do, we mean everything! So, we're looking for another proposal aficionado to add to our talented marketing team. The characteristics listed below sum up our ideal candidate. If this sounds like you, we can't wait to talk!

Internal Quality Control: Mediocrity will just not do on your watch. You do your best work even when nobody's looking. It's not that you're a perfectionist, you just really enjoy what you do and relish making your clients' lives easier.

An Eye for Design & Layout: Your page layout invites the reader in. You value hierarchy, white space, color, simplicity, and delight in making the mundane pop on a page. Eager to push the envelope and welcome feedback.

Superior Writing Skills: You're good. You're brief. You're gone. (And you know the difference between your and you're.)

A Strategic Mindset: Not only do you see the big picture, you understand your place in it. You're curious and ask the right questions at the right time. You're able to interpret and communicate data simply and clearly. You think!

Industry Knowledge: OK, this is a plus. You know what topping out means and the difference between precast and tilt up (*ahem* it's called concrete, not cement). Oh, and if you don't know any of this stuff, you find out.


Success in this role favors the highly organized who can prioritize multiple, concurrent tasks in a fast-paced, deadline driven environment. Responsibilities include:

  • Proposal/Presentation Development: Partnering with pursuit teams to advance our positioning and deliver proposals that resonate with our clients. Responsibilities include coordinating all aspects of pursuits: strategy development, messaging, formatting, proofreading, coordination with graphics and teaming partners, editing, quality reviews, compliance, brand adherence, and efficient and timely production.
  • Client Development: Providing strategic business development support to facilitate client development, assembling information packages, supporting the planning and preparations of client workshops and special events, and maintaining marketing files.
  • Business Development: Contributing to company marketing process improvements to support efficiency and overall sales program effectiveness. May provide planning support for key conferences to maximize presence and investment.
  • Marketing Information: Supporting our process to create and maintain well-organized, up-to-date qualifications statements, project descriptions, and resumes that reflect firm strengths and client benefits.
