The Content Strategist will help conceive and create multi-platform, programmatic content vehicles for clients. He or she will execute on a broad content strategy for brands across digital platforms as well as occasionally for print or experiential outgrowths, with the goal of telling compelling stories that resonate with the intended audience, be it B-to-B or B-to-C.
In general, the Content Strategist will excel at seeing narrative paths through dense reports and approach the unearthing of those stories enthusiastically. He or she will have a demonstrated ability to flesh out those stories on multiple platforms simultaneously. Though not a designer by trade, he or she should be able to think visually and direct visual storytellers on his or her team to accomplish these goals.
The ideal candidate can help operationalize this process and build the firm’s capability in this category. He or she will work with the Head of Content & Editorial Strategy to storymine, pitch ideas and coordinate the execution process to clients’ satisfaction.
Scope and Impact of the Position
Edelman is committed to building content creation teams that are highly digital, journalistic in nature, and that help companies build their brands. This Strategist will report directly to the Head of Content & Editorial Strategy and work closely with Creative, Digital and Planning teams. He or she will help serve as a change agent for the firm and their clients in thinking about, conceiving, producing and assessing content differently from traditional methods. He or she will be part of a team helping clients uncover and identify the stories behind the stories—those that are worth disseminating because they reach beyond product or corporate marketing (even with business-to-business clients). This role will be an integral part of Edelman’s overarching content creation and client brand-building efforts.
