The Hired Guns are looking for a Content Producer who can tackle special projects in a single bound for our client, a top-tier global investment bank. In this role you’ll work on cross-functional projects across this firm’s web properties, newsletters, and print communications, and do a whole lot of heavy lifting on projects. This is a challenging, high-visibility opportunity that will open a lot of doors for a bright, flexible, multi-talented Gun.
The right Gun for this job is an analytical thinker, a solid writer, a confident speaker, and a natural with technology. You have unparalleled attention to detail and can multi-task like the best of ’em and keep track of deliverables and project timelines in your sleep. You exemplify the true meaning of that overworked word “proactive”: you see what needs doing, and you do it, without haranguing and hand-holding from above. You have an innate intellectual curiosity that compels you to learn as much as you can about every company and industry you’ve worked in. You have a history of getting things done and being recognized for it. (And can tell us all about it.)
You bring absolute bang-up expert knowledge of MS Office (all the pieces – Word, Excel, PowerPoint, Access/other database, and maybe some we don’t know about), solid familiarity with basic HTML and with CMS/electronic publishing systems of some kind, exposure to web usage reporting and analytics tools, and great proofreading and editing skills. Bachelors degree minimum, with at least four years of work experience (exposure to the financial services industry a strong plus).
This we guarantee: no two days will be the same. In a nutshell, you’ll be responsible for a variety of content aimed at internal and external audiences and corporate alumni via online and offline channels. Specific duties include planning, organizing, developing copious lists in Excel, analyzing data, writing and publishing content, contributing to the growth strategy for the firm’s alumni network website and newsletters, and generating ideas for improving the firm’s public-facing site and its underlying websites.
On top of all those web production duties, you’ll also work closely with the alumni network team. Here you’ll do everything from cleaning up databases and making lists of key alumni for outreach to running lots of reports, comparing spreadsheets and working with the vendor and the HR data team when needed. You’ll also work closely with senior alumni on updating their profiles, produce marketing and recruiting collateral, work with print production people, and create PowerPoint presentations.
We need a curious doer, not an order-taker. Convince us that you’ve got the can-do gene, so the hiring manager can let you run free and not have to micro-manage.
You’re the kind of person who’ll make the client say, “Where have you been all my life?”
