Tell us a bit about your current role here at Vision.

What’s your title? What do you do?

In my role as a Bids and Proposals Administrator, I collaborate closely with different teams, including sales and marketing, to create proposals. This involves organising and creating content, reviewing and editing drafts, and supporting Account Managers to meet their specific needs.

Recently, I have also taken on additional responsibilities by leading bids, which has been a brilliant growth opportunity for me.
