Employee Communications Specialist EMEA

Careers at Bloomberg

London

Posted Nov 17, 2016 - Requisition No. 55722

Who you are:

You are a creative thinker who can simultaneously execute a variety of communications initiatives – from content creation to complex program management – in front of an audience of our 19,000 employees worldwide. Your comfort tying messages to business results is clear from your comfort working with an editorial and multimedia team as well as with a bunch of platforms and formats, like video, digital signage, web, and social media. Everyone knows you as that highly organized person who pays close attention to details. You understand that a well-executed project requires collaboration across departments and time zones, but you are proactive and can work independently.

You’re an excellent communicator, you present well. Your knack for storytelling manifests across media and conversation and you can write in a variety of tones and formats depending on the intentions behind the message. You know how to distil complex business topics into understandable language for a variety of audiences.
You realize that data is what we’re about at Bloomberg and communications is as much science as it is art.

What you'll do:

You will work closely with the EMEA corporate communications group and report into the global employee comms team to drive regionally-relevant initiatives that inform, engage, enable, and inspire employees through strategic, data-driven communications. What does that mean? You will seek strategic advice and guidance from the team and others to develop and execute campaigns for all-employee and targeted internal messaging programs across our editorial and multimedia platforms. Additionally, you will work on many projects intended for external audiences – for example working on events, arranging photo shoots of employees, coordinating video shoots, support for media outreach, and support for content-driven recruiting efforts.

One of the major things you'll be responsible for is managing the regional employee communications platform ONBB, tailoring it for local Bloomberg audiences across EMEA.

Very often you will assist the EMEA corporate communications with complementary initiatives to educate and train employees about new Bloomberg products and services and the latest sales narrative, for example.
You’ll pitch ideas, manage, and create various forms of content for our platforms, including digital signage, internal and external websites/blogs, social media accounts, video, employee newsletters, and a YouTube channel.

We'll trust you to:

  • Work closely with EMEA Corporate Communications, Marketing, HR, Design, and Media teams to ideate, craft, and deploy strategic messages
  • Stop on a dime and change direction when urgent communication needs arise
  • Build and execute integrated external and employee communications strategies, programs, and actions that enable recruitment of top talent, drive sales, and retain our best folks
  • Manage relationships with vendors
  • Team up with your corporate communications colleagues to distribute internal communications that support external campaigns, and vice versa
  • Develop and maintain awareness of editorial calendars and the needs of business departments across the globe to maintain communications synchronicity
  • Develop, implement, and maintain appropriate metrics to evaluate effectiveness of communications and the ability to influence behavioral change
  • Multitask in a fast-paced environment

You’ll need to have:

  • A Bachelor's degree along with relevant experience in communications
  • The ability to strategically plan and a penchant for the proactive
  • Knowledge of multimedia production is a big plus
  • Excellent verbal and written communications skills with internal and external audiences
  • The ability to translate business needs into actionable messages
  • A diplomatic demeanour and a high emotional quotient

We’d love to see:

  • Experience with CMS, such as Scala, would be beneficial
  • An elegant mix of independent and collaborative work ethics
  • Innovation and a willingness to let go of ideas that don’t work
  • Comfort working shoulder to shoulder in an open plan environment
