About the Job
The Business Development Analyst will serve as an Internal Communications Coordinator (ICC) and will be responsible for providing proactive proposal development activities, which directly translate into more efficient and rapid proposal completion. The primary focus is to consult with internal subject matter experts in understanding, developing, and clarifying proposal messaging; this is achieved through an iterative writing and boilerplate development process. While much of the ICC?s work will be focused towards creating and managing content that can be reused in support of multiple opportunities (e.g., a particular market, service line, etc.), the successful candidate will also be available to conduct opportunity-specific research for individual client solicitations. Moreover, the ICC will serve as a liaison among department, functional groups, and entire organizational business units to ensure achievement data and project highlights are captured and included into core content chunks to be used in multiple pieces of company-wide collateral (proposals, case studies, website, brochures, etc.).
The ICC will also aid in writing, editing and preparing materials (e.g., online forms/questionnaires, client questions, resumes) in response to RFPs and RFQs. Some editing and formatting of reports, presentations, and other materials is required.

Assist in the writing, editing, and formatting of proposals, qualifications, resumes, project descriptions, and other written deliverables.
Produce and edit documents using MS Word, including copy editing, rewriting, revising, and formatting.
Review materials after production to ensure quality and accuracy.
Ensure consistency in the application of technical abbreviations and acronyms.
Take part in proposal closeout process management (e.g., review of scoring/client feedback, debriefs, competitor bid review, etc.) in order to better define direction of proposal content.
Four-year degree in Business Administration, English/Journalism, Communications or related field
2+ years of experience developing or assembling materials in response to RFPs
Background in writing and communications for technical, service-oriented companies
Knowledge of energy engineering and efficiency programs a plus
