Since our founding in 2009, one of Cor’s biggest strengths has been our ability to develop highly-effective messaging for our clients, and then communicate that message to the public consistently and convincingly on every available platform. We are looking to add someone to our marcom team with communications skills who can originate persuasive, emotional, and impactful content and communications that will resonate with voters and specific target audiences.
To start, this individual will be tasked with executing our communications strategies by utilizing the messaging we have developed. They will also create communications content that incorporates that client’s messaging and reflects their identity and campaign strategy, including, but not limited to, emails, call scripts, social media posts, letters, press releases, letters to the editor/op-eds, website copy, and responses to queries and questionnaires. This individual will help create copy and content for all departments, including political, events, field, government affairs, data and telecom, and particularly marketing. They will be involved daily with assisting in the creation of all marketing materials, including copy for print/digital ads, collateral, direct mail, videos, and audio. They will work with the marcom team to develop short- and long-term plans that encompass all communications and marketing related content. This individual will also handle developing content for Cor’s company communications and marketing.
Ultimately, as the individual proves themselves capable, they will be tasked with developing high-level messaging for clients, working directly with the strategy team and client. They will help examine and document client identities, combine bio and historical details with identities to craft narrative biographies, and work within an identity and campaign strategy to develop campaign themes, slogans, and talking points.
