I'm a little stuck... Click here to teach me more about this clue!

'a certain kind?' is the definition.
The definition suggests an adjective which matches the answer.

'a company offer' is the wordplay.
'a company' becomes 'firm' (firm can mean a company or business).
'offer' becomes 'proposal' (proposal is a kind of offer).
'firm'+'proposal'='FIRM PROPOSAL'

'of' is the link.
