Ever been in a Turkish prison? Ever been a content strategist, digital editor or communications planner in an agency or digital media environment? If you answered yes to either of these questions – well, mostly the second one—then we’ve got an awesome gig for you to consider at one of the best-known and most highly respected brands in the world. It’s a juicy role for a seasoned content production manager, somebody with real marketing experience and the ability to secure the free flow of ideas, work effort and deliverables between parts of a global organization.
Your job is to make sure that each business area is being optimally served by – and putting to best use – the content-production team. In other words, that the company is generating bang-up content and leveraging it to full effect. Now, don’t let the job title fool you into thinking this is one of those sit-back-and-peruse-the-analytics gigs. Instead, think of yourself as equal parts production manager, account manager, and content strategist. Why do we say that? Well, let’s take those one at a time. As production manager, you’ll be building efficiencies and streamlining work and deliverables between editorial and social. As account manager, you’ll be interfacing (with dash, polish and élan) with a portfolio of internal clients. And as content strategist, you’ll oversee the conception and generation of the kind of reputation-based storytelling efforts that make consumers associate the company’s products and activities with all good things.
Within the scope of those responsibilities lie such actions as developing target audience personas, proposing projects to business partners, setting expectations around the scheduling of campaigns and projects, communicating updates to stakeholders, resolving conflicts that might impede success, and preaching the gospel of content throughout the organization. All told, it’s a dynamic, high-profile, high-mobility role that will get you tons of exposure both laterally and vertically within the company.
Hired Gun Proﬁle
You’re half a decade into a career in marketing program management and account development, time in which you’ve greatly honed your content chops and learned how important good storytelling can be for a modern company. Fueled by this brightly-burning passion for narrative, you move comfortably around within an organization finding lanterns to light. You’re a highly organized problem-solver who comes with a point of view and a can-do, collaborative spirit (You’re all about, “Let’s figure this out!” instead of, “Shoot. Let me think about this and get back to you.”). You’re very much at home talking with clients, discussing their needs, and doing active listening – you’ve even been accused of mind-reading a time or two.
Just in case we haven’t yet made this sufficiently clear, you’ve got to be very, very comfortable with the word “liaison” in order to be the right fit for this gig. (We don’t mean very, very comfortable with spelling it. Nobody is. Nobody but the French.)
We like unique gigs with lots of internal movement and built-in variety. If you do, too – and especially if you’re a razzle-dazzle content pro with a flair for managing production – then surely you could do worse than this meaty role at one of the world’s best-known companies (And yes, we know your name’s not Shirley).
