Carly in a few words

Bid and proposals coordinator for 5 years, I am seeking Berlin-based Communication roles where companies can leverage my personable approach and exceptional English language skills. I have been in Berlin for two years and seek clients on a Freelance basis.

My experience involved creating compelling marketing and sales copy for the proposal stage of building projects. Working to tight schedules and coordinating across diverse teams, I closely supported project teams to deliver specialised documents.

Upon establishing systems and a portfolio of Marketing and Communications material for a commercial builder, and in developing their Bid process from the ground up, I contributed to a 50% increase in overall sales in 12 months.
