ABOUT US | HR&A provides strategic advisory services for clients in the public, private, and non-profit sectors to solve some of the most complex challenges facing cities today. We care about improving the quality of urban life, and we are increasingly focused on the challenges of inclusivity, infrastructure, and technological innovation in cities as we advance public-private development projects that improve economic, environmental, and social outcomes.
We are former public servants, real estate developers, urban planners, city officials, activists, and economists. We are unique in our ability to create value by integrating disparate disciplines for our clients, and we often lead teams with engineers, architects, lawyers, community organizers, and other specialists. We are a tight-knit team that works across the country and around the world from offices in New York, Dallas, Los Angeles, Raleigh, and Washington, DC.

- Improving the content, organization, and systems surrounding firm-wide proposal and marketing resources, including project qualifications, staff resumes, firm profiles, references, and forms and statements for proposals
- Other proposal production and pitch support activities, as necessary
This position involves significant work directly with senior members of the firm to support them as they build their practice areas.
SKILLS REQUIRED | We are looking for candidates with strong organizational skills, who will learn quickly; possess excellent written and verbal communication skills; and be able to manage multiple assignments at once. They will think independently, act entrepreneurially, and pay attention to the details. Ideal candidates will bring a demonstrated capacity for leadership, critical thinking, and creativity.
