Are you an enthusiastic project manager, marketing or sales professional (2+ years of experience) looking for their next challenge? De Brauw is looking for an energetic individual who enjoys connecting teams and capabilities with opportunities for us to build strategic partnerships with our clients.

This role

As the name would suggest, this is a role within our Pitching and Pricing team, which is part of a larger Client Relations team, all based in Amsterdam. Alongside pricing experts, client relationship managers, communication advisers and event specialists – you will report to the Head of Pitching and Pricing.

With an eye for detail, and whilst not taking your other eye off the delivery timetable, you will be responsible for the whole bid cycle: from bid/no bid decisions and kick-off meetings, to working on pitch documents, evaluating post-pitch feedback and contributing to overall business generation. You connect with relevant stakeholders in both Legal and in Client Relations. Working together closely with the involved colleagues, you will provide practical support, strategic insights and content at all points of this process.

While bids and proposals will be your centre of gravity, you will pivot with the opportunity to continually refine and enhance our efficiency and efficacy. You will play a key role in developing and implementing best practices and sharing that information across the firm.

This is an excellent opportunity at a very reputable firm, with plenty of room for growth and progression. In short, you will help accelerate our ability to deliver on both our new business strategy, and the firm’s overall vision.

You?

Do you recognise yourself in the following description?

  • You display a strong commercial awareness, able to identify opportunities to deliver on strategic goals;
  • You are able to translate client requirements and needs into the right message and tone of voice in proposals;
  • You inspire confidence with an enthusiastic approach and an approachable professional manner;
  • You can build relationships quickly at all levels, able to liaise with internal stakeholders confidently, advising them as to content and process;
  • You enjoy, and have, excellent project management skills;
  • You have a keen attention to detail, with outstanding English-speaking, writing, proofreading and editing skills; and
  • You see yourself as a proactive self-starter, who is motivated to contribute on both the strategic and operational level?

If so, we are confident that you could thrive in this role. An APMP certificate, and/or bid or wider bid/pitch experience, would be beneficial, but evidence of a commitment to and appetite for continual learning and personal growth would indicate that you are a good fit at De Brauw. Similarly, expertise that understands how to use PowerPoint to position both our brand and our pitch at the right level would be an advantage.

We hope that the potential and responsibilities of this role inspire you to join us.
