INTURN’s Brand Marketing and Communications Lead will be responsible for positioning, brand-building, and communications from INTURN to the business-to-business marketplace. This person will have the opportunity to create and shape the marketplace conversation around a topic that is typically not spoken about, but is a top priority and problem for brands and retailers. This is an innovative role that is designed for a self- starter with an entrepreneurial attitude and spirit.
The Brand Marketing and Communications Lead needs to be a creative marketer who has a proven expertise developing a brand through earned media, social platforms, speaking opportunities, events, and more. They should be imaginative in their approach to the marketplace, broadening INTURN’s reach and awareness and developing new opportunities for INTURN (and our executives) to interact and engage with decision-makers and industry leaders. This position is both strategic and hands-on, developing our brand and communications strategy as well as implementing it.
The Brand Marketing and Communications Lead must be an outstanding communicator, evangelizing INTURN’s message both internally and externally. You should be original in your thinking and scientific in your approach. You must have expertise in breaking down complex business problems and technologies and communicating bold ideas and concepts — in the simplest way — to the B2B marketplace. You must also have outstanding writing skills, as you will be the creator of content for both PR purposes as well as for our blog, social media, and other opportunities that you conceive or develops on behalf of INTURN.
