About the Team & Business Line:

The Marketing and Communications function within Citco Group provides a wide range of content to existing and prospective clients as well as our approximate 8,000 staff across 40 locations worldwide, covering social media posts, articles for media outlets, videos, thought-leadership reports and surveys, to name a few.

The Group is comprised of a series of companies and divisions, which provide a broad range of services to the private equity, hedge fund, pensions and private wealth sectors, among others – including corporate governance and regulatory services to multinationals with many bases around the world. This particular role will sit within the Group marketing team, but focus specifically on the latter: the right candidate will generate and execute marketing campaigns to promote a ‘fintech’-style offering that helps global companies manage hundreds of sub-companies around the world from a governance and regulatory standpoint.

The subject matter is regulation-focused and is primarily aimed at the legal/ company secretarial teams at global companies but – given the broad range of sectors involved, from retail to manufacturing, travel and technology – content and campaigns must also be accessible to a broader audience of C-suite professionals from a range of sectors.

Currently, the division carries out very effective social media and direct-to-client communications; the plan is to increase this output while also raising the brand’s multi-media visibility and media presence both in legal and general business media outlets in future.

As a valuable member of Citco Group’s Marketing and Communications team, you will work closely with the Group marketing team, internal stakeholders in this specific division and your supporting marketing agency to create engaging business content to support operations and sales.

 

Your Role:

  • You will be responsible for the day-to-day operational direction of marketing and communications campaigns, from idea generation through to approvals and implementation.
  • You will be in charge of daily management of our supporting marketing/communications agency is included, involving management and oversight of annual internal and external campaigns such as organizing spokespeople, collateral (pictures, design, copy), topline campaign approvals, awards, some events support, day-to-day media, direct-to-client communications, media relations and social media.
  • You will be working in close co-operation with a talented content creator in the division’s team, where you will both be involved in rallying the ideas of a broader team of experts.

 

 

About You:

  • You have 4-6 years of experience as a communications specialist in-house or in an agency in a similar role. Agency - Account Manager to Senior Account Director-level; in-house – communications manager to director-level. The Vice-President/ Senior Vice-President title offered will be dependent on experience.
  • Experience in either the legal/regulatory or financial services sectors from a marketing and/or communications standpoint is essential – ideally some experience of both.
  • Knowledge of social media and experience in managing campaigns will be a distinct plus.
  • Broader multi-sector experience will also be a plus – given the division’s extremely diverse client base.
