Being a Proposals Engineer means a typical day at work can be considered quite busy depending on the level of tenders/quotations that have come in.
This would mean juggling high volume work within restricted timescales without compromising on the quality of work. However this is made easier by excellent members of the team who would come together during periods of high workload and give each support and encouragement.
Excellent organisational, communication and time management skills are essential attributes and can take you a long way.
Even though at times it would be difficult to enjoy a work life balance, getting key results by winning tender's and opportunities for the company will make all hard-work and hours put in worth it.
