Our client in Foxboro, MA is looking for someone who can assist in the creative storytelling in showroom and event spaces. This is a long-term indefinite contingent opportunity with possibility of conversion.
The ideal candidate brings print and digital expertise and a mastery of grammar and AP style, and is able to apply these specialties on demanding deadlines. The role will require taking business solutions and benefits and crafting a narrative for both digital and print displays in physical showroom and event spaces.
You will work closely with designers, the creative director for showrooms, requesters, and business managers to develop and/or execute content for customer-facing showroom and event marketing assets. You will need an intimate understanding of company's tone of voice, brand message guidelines, and global editorial standards.
With access to subject matter experts, third-party and internal research and reports, and internal standards and best practices, you will be expected to understand changing business needs quickly within the context of industry trends. Your challenge will come in the form of taking what others have written about their products, solutions, industry trends, and customers’ needs and turning that into a narrative that not only tells the story of those products and solutions in that industry, but also shows cohesion to the overall story of the company's brand.
In addition to being an amazing writer, you should be self-motivated and, when it comes down to it, we all want to work with someone who is genuinely a nice person.
