Content Director – Global Technology Client – Content Marketing Agency – London.

This leading Content Marketing Agency is looking for a Content Director to join one of its growing Global Technology accounts.

The role:

Comprises two elements, working with the two key regions.

  1. EMEA (approx 60-70%)
  • Develop and launch an ‘always on’ content programme for EMEA
  • Run campaign content for EMEA markets
  • Develop and run a European network of local language expert journalists who can transcreate content for their own market and develop their own local stories.
  1. Worldwide (approx 30-40%)
  • Oversight of campaign-driven content for Workstations and their DaaS offering (most of the work will be done by an incumbent Editor but will need input of Content Director’s expertise)

Other responsibilities:

To input into other B2B client accounts as required (eg, attend brainstorms and strategy meetings).

The content:

Content will mostly be targeted at high-level IT decision-makers and CIOs in large enterprises.

It will focus on thought-leadership and business challenges – and how IT can help to solve them – rather than being ‘product push’ content.

It will need to be original, attention-grabbing, thought-provoking and stimulating. Think “Wired meets HBR”.

You’ll have:

  • Extensive experience of covering the world of enterprise IT as a journalist. Need to be a true specialist in their field.
  • Strong understanding of target audience, their business priorities and media consumption habits.
  • A strong grasp of multi-channel, multi-format branded content – how to bring story ideas to life in an authentic way for a very hard-to-reach audience.
  • Ability to sell those ideas into the client – strong client-facing skills.
  • Strong editorial and multi-channel digital content creation skills (so not just writing and commissioning written articles, but also video, infographics and other rich media – as well as experience of, and a good understanding of, web content, social media and email).
  • Ability to work closely with strategy and account management team to formulate and implement content plans.
  • Team management skills, plus ability to collaborate with – and get the best out of – colleagues in the agency’s B2B hub (eg, Editors, Art Director).

Other areas of interest:

  • Agency experience as well as traditional media/journalism experience.
  • Experience of commissioning and activating content in multiple languages for multiple markets.
  • Speak at least one foreign language.
  • Genuine IT experience (eg, a degree in computer science, experience of working in IT).

Reports to:

Editorial Director

    I have no hesitation in recommending Ross. He is, by quite some distance, the best recruiter I have worked with. Perhaps unusually, Ross listens carefully in order to understand the needs of his clients and candidates, thereby ensuring that good matches are made; we are not talking 'spray and pray'. Likeable and on the ball, I hope to work with him again.
