Ramsey Solutions has an exciting and challenging opportunity for an experienced content rock star who is ready to do work that matters. We’re looking for an Associate Director (AD) of ELP/SmartVestor Content to provide leadership to our growing team of ELP/SmartVestor writers.
As the AD of ELP/SmartVestor Content, you’ll be responsible for leading an existing team of writers and growing that team to better serve our business units. You’ll partner with other content, creative, marketing and business leaders to define and build our brand voice so we can continue to change lives—and impact the world—with our message of HOPE.
If you are a creative problem solver who not only loves words, but has a passion for leading people, and pushing yourself and your team to set the bar higher and higher--keep reading.
The AD of ELP/SmartVestor Content duties are split between tactical (50%) and team leadership and strategic duties (50%).
The AD sets the bar on the team for excellent writing through their own work and by ensuring their team consistently produces content that educates, empowers and encourages our readers. Projects include original copy for multiple platforms (blog, Facebook, Twitter, YouTube, podcast, etc.) and multiple formats (eg. SEO-optimized blog posts, emails, webpages, paid search and paid social ads, newsletters, video scripts, etc.) for ELP and SmartVestor. The AD also reviews team members’ work, providing direction and coaching on voice, tone and quality.
The AD is responsible for hiring, training and providing ongoing coaching to team members; assigning projects; and removing roadblocks that prevent team members from completing their work.
The person in this position will serve as the link between the business unit and the writing team by collaborating with other teams to develop voice and tone for our copy; determine the scope of the projects the writing team will work on; and identify and resolve process issues.
As the leader of the ELP/SmartVestor writing team, you’ll be responsible for copy/content that reflects Ramsey Solutions’ teachings on topics ranging from budgeting and paying off debt to retirement/investing, real estate, insurance and income taxes. Content creation experience in any of these fields is a plus.
- At least three years of writing experience and the ability to produce published (print or online) samples.
- At least two years in a leadership position, preferably managing a team of writers for a business.
- A working knowledge of content marketing, SEO and marketing writing (copywriting: ads, webpages, emails, etc.).
We’re not messing around when we say this is a challenging role. Our standards are high, so you not only need the right experience and skill, you need to understand and be fired up about our mission to bring HOPE to hurting people, to heal marriages and change family trees. Our message has the power to change the culture. If you’ve got what it takes to help us do that—apply today!
