If you are passionate about your profession and your colleagues, looking to have a positive impact, and are ready to join a global network of marketing professionals, Arup is the right place for you.

About our Houston practice:

Arup is looking for an experienced Senior Marketing Specialist in our vibrant and growing Houston office. In Texas, we have growing practices in Houston and Dallas. Best known for our work on Texas High-speed Rail, the White Rose gravity oil platform for Husky Energy, the Renovation of Terminal D in the Houston International Airport, electrical and mechanical upgrades and a terminal expansion at DFW Airport, the mixed-used development 1603 Broadway in San Antonio, Dow St. Charles Laboratories, various hospital projects, and the renovation of Kimbell Art Museum in Fort Worth, we focus on transportation, buildings and energy, with expected growth in each of these markets. 

What you will achieve in the role:

This is a hands-on role, requiring the professional to operate at multiple levels - engaging in visioning and actively translating those discussions into actions, proposals, collateral, and events.

This role includes a three-week long onboarding process in which you are introduced to local, regional, and global leaders. Our marketing professionals work in a collaborative and energetic environment to support each other and senior staff in their ongoing marketing, business development and communication activities.

After six months, you will be developing marketing collateral, with a focus on professional, compliant proposals and requests for information for public and private sector projects, including tailored resumes and project sheets that reflect the quality and brand of the firm. You will be creating win themes and owning the entire lifecycle of proposals for key pursuits, from lead identification to interview prep. You will provide support in the development of presentations for internal and external meetings. You will be assisting with the coordination of events, seminars, and conferences.

After twelve months, as a senior member of the team, you will be coordinating several multi-disciplinary and cross-regional pursuits. You will also represent Arup while attending industry events, expanding your growing network of marketers.

  • Experience facilitating and documenting initiative discussions and leading proposal kick-off meetings
  • Involvement with local marketing and or A/E/C organizations and willingness to attend events on behalf of the firm
