Creativity. Strategy. Nimbleness. Team. It's what powers us and sets us apart. With transformational leadership and the development of a truly innovative and integrated Marketing organization, it's an exciting time to be in Marketing at Mackenzie! We're building deeper client relationships, leveraging client insights, innovative media and engaging content via digital and social growth channels to build a fresh Marketing approach that differentiates us from traditional investment Marketing. This role is an incredible opportunity to have significant, transformational impact on the organization and business.
We currently have an opening for a Senior Marketing Associate. Reporting to the Director, CRM & Contact Strategy, this role is focussed on three major components: Driving Sales enablement strategies, leading our content optimization efforts, and distributing our thought-leadership materials digitally.
In this role, you will help lead the efforts to support our 100+ member sales team. You will collaborate closely with colleagues across Marketing, Product, and Sales to support the planning, design and execution of major sales enablement strategies aligned to the goals of the business. Specifically, you will:
- Lead the continuous development of our integrated content management platform, designed to enable our sales team with the right materials at the right time to support their goals.
- Own and seek continual improvement of the framework for the Marketing (and Product) teams to distribute their materials efficiently and effectively to the sales team.
- Develop and enact platform utilization and capability adoption strategies to further integrate the system into the day-to day life of our sales team.
- Help transform the flow of industry news, product support information, and thought leadership into our sales team from an ad-hoc, email based system to a newly organized digital process.
- Lead the group's efforts in terms of leveraging new interactive sales enablement tools to make content even more powerful for our sales team.
You will seek to enhance our content automation capabilities by leveraging available technology/software, design considerations, and data sources. You will coordinate the requirements of stakeholders and manage either the in-house build or facilitate 3rd-party support, as required.
You will contribute to the overall increase in efficiency for our teams by building and distributing detailed content utilization reporting, and educating and empowering teams to leverage the utilization tools available to them.
In addition, you will build content management guardrails, provide recommendations on process improvements, and ensure adherence to established processes.
Ultimately, you will play a major role in creating an efficient and effective Marketing organization from a content perspective.
Digital Content Management*
In support of our thought leadership and market insights materials, you will manage the distribution of materials by aligning with our digital partners to showcase them online. As necessary, you will also leverage other ?owned channels' to maximize the reach of the material. You'll oversee many aspects of the post-production lifecycle, including appropriate tagging, cataloging, internal promotion, sales enablement, versioning and end-of-life management. You'll make, receive and apply recommendations towards efficient use of resources, take stock of existing materials and initiate requests to fill necessary gaps.
Overall, you will maintain a continued focus on building capabilities and business processes designed to improve the overall client experience, either directly or through our sales team partners.
