From helping shape a brand’s voice and build a foundational story and value proposition to applying that voice to building copy for collateral, websites, video, social and more, the ability to shape and deliver strategic content planning and copywriting is key.
  • Dig into the data to measure results. This includes working with clients to define success measurement and collaborating with the GRIT team to capture the data, dive into the metrics and report on results.
  • Support client growth. This role will be an advocate for the client, always listening to uncover how GRIT can best support changing business needs and goals. This includes leading the process to develop proposals for new partnership opportunities.
