Client Description:

This client is one of our largest financial services clients. But don’t let that stop you from reading further!

We place so many freelancers here who consistently tell us its one of the best places they've worked. Why? The teams, the culture, the management, and most recently, the client’s willingness to recognize that it was important to step up to the digital demands of the marketplace:

  • A new CMO and high level digital leadership that have transitioned in from top technology, retail and CPG companies

  • Transitioning their marketing structure to Agile methodology to be able to deliver valuable content to its audiences faster

  • They even followed this up with a floor remodel, to support the methodology, creativity & collaboration

We hear often that the constant here is change. The company is consistently trying new approaches that they think will improve not only their product offerings but the worklife as well. If you’re used to “going with the flow”, this is a great opportunity for you!

These are key elements to be able to walk away with and add to your resume, especially if you’re coming from a traditional marketing structure. What a great way to help transition your career in this trending direction!
