"After more than two decades working in a variety of marketing and communications roles, I came into tender writing almost by accident.  After my first role with Aurora Marketing as a bid whip on a major project, I discovered I loved the competitive challenge of working with a client on developing a winning bid strategy."

"I've worked for Aurora on and off over the last 10 years. It's been a very welcoming experience, with highly professional staff, all driven to excel and cater first and foremost for our clients' needs. Although we all work across Australia, in a decentralised manner, you never feel alone; it's comforting knowing you have a team of experts to support you when needed."

Michelle Jacobs - Bid Writer

There is an inspiring focus on growth and development within the team, both in terms of business opportunities and in terms of individual training and personal development. The beauty of working with Aurora is in being part of a very close and supportive core team that works on an exciting and diverse range of large-scale, often city-shaping projects.

Aurora is the most dynamic and rewarding company I have ever worked with – which is why I am still her after a decade! What I have learned throughout this time, I could never have learned in any one organisation. The work is ever changing because of the nature of the tenders and clients we work with, but regardless of this, Aurora is always consistent in professionalism, approach and delivery.
