Technical Proposal Writer

Encompass LLC

About the organization

EnCompass was founded in 1999 by two women who wanted to build a company where “work that fits your life” was the motto and where we could use the principles of appreciative inquiry in our management consulting and technical assistance services to our clients. We work primarily in international development, but we also have had domestic clients and clients in the private sector.


The Technical Proposal Writer supports EnCompass’ business development (BD) activities by supporting the creation of effective, audience-focused, new business proposals and marketing/positioning materials, such as capability statements, newsletters, success stories, blogs or short thought pieces for internal and external audiences. This individual will have a direct role in improving staff’s ability to engage in business development activities and to conceptualize and write high-quality, new business development–related materials for clients and other audiences.
To accomplish these tasks, the Technical Proposal Writer collaborates with other members of the BD team, EnCompass leaders, and staff across the company, focusing on: (a) direct writing/editing support for proposals and other materials aligned with new business strategy; (b) mentoring and capacity-strengthening activities to increase staff skills for engagement in new business development activities.
The position may be based remotely, depending on the location, or at EnCompass’ headquarters in Rockville, Maryland.
