Bringing the right person into our team is very important and we need to make sure the successful candidate can adhere to our core values.

We Make It Happen. You will be joining a fast paced team with high expectations and your day to day will involve research, writing, editing and designing proposals to help win new business. You’ll be responsible for the production of tender responses, presentations and supporting material, along with graphic design and editing support to internal departments and stakeholders.

We Make It Better. It’s not just about doing your job; it’s about going that step further. We want someone who is passionate about the growth of our business. Along with compiling proposals and supporting documentation, you’ll also be responsible for responding to PQQ’s, tenders and requests for information.

Lets Make It Together. Hearing “well done” and “thanks” are not uncommon at HSS Hire. We show respect to each and every one of our colleagues and working as a team helps up to achieve each and every goal, together!

So who are we looking for? Well first of all you’ll need to have high attention to detail with excellent editing and proofing ability. We want someone who can demonstrate effective bid and sales literature writing ability and who has design awareness with Adobe InDesign and Adobe Creative cloud.
