Marketing Communications Specialist

You are a superior writer, simply put. You pride yourself not only on flawless grammar, but also on understanding audience, intent, and desired action for all the content you create. You can be funny (you are funny!) and entertain, and you can also get down to strategic business and create persuasive and compelling content that gets noticed (and gets results). With an organized but flexible work style, you’re at ease with busy executives and equally able to engage with online followers.

Smart, Savvy + Associates has partnered with our client, a large Vancouver-based law firm, in their search for a Marketing Communications Specialist. This role supports writing and communications for internal and external audiences, for both the greater organization and for the firm’s lawyers. If you are an engaging communicator with fantastic writing skills, enjoy a busy and dynamic environment, and are looking for an opportunity to build an organization’s social presence, this might be your next role!

About the role:

The Marketing Communications Specialist writes a wide range of materials to support the organization’s goals as well as individual lawyers’ objectives.

A high level of confidentiality and discretion is required in this role. Main tasks include:

  • Write, edit, format and publish content to support organization’s business goals
  • Support business development through development and refinement of proposals, marketing materials, and conducting research of potential clients
  • Follow industry trends and pitch media/online influencers with relevant stories
  • Research and present opportunities for PR e.g. speaking engagements, advertising, etc.
  • Collaborate with Human Resources on recruitment ads and internal announcements

About you:

  • Post-secondary education in communications, journalism, public relations or related area
  • 3+ years’ experience in creating and publishing written and visual content for traditional and digital communication channels, including B2B social media management
  • Excellent writing skills, with flawless spelling, grammar, and editing, and the ability to persuade, inform, entertain (and even tell a joke or two)
  • Experienced in managing social media channels, including developing content for different audiences, publishing and monitoring posts, and analyzing engagement
  • Strong interpersonal skills with the professionalism to interact confidently at all levels of the organization, and with the ability to be concise and diplomatic to work with busy schedules
