A Day in the Life:
Editing for a variety of channels, including direct mail and email. · Working closely with our Compliance and Legal teams to help keep us out of trouble with our regulators. · Reviewing and revising marketing materials and customer communications to ensure consistency with brand standards as well as legal/compliance and editorial guidelines. · Maintaining a fundamental understanding of our processes and products, including marketing language and the accompanying legal disclosures. · Recognizing and raising potential issues throughout the creative review process.
Right-brain smarts: Excellent proofreading and writing skills. If typos and bad grammar make you cringe, and improper punctuation gives you the willies, we want you. · Left-brain smarts: Strong ability to recognize potential legal/compliance issues. · Strong command of French, Canadian English language, including grammar, punctuation and spelling. · Good command of Canadian English language, an asset. · A sharp eye for detail and excellent organizational skills. · Ability to manage multiple deadlines and tight turnaround times. · Excellent computer skills (PC), including Adobe Acrobat. · Ability to work well alone and play nicely with others. Looking for: · 1 to 3 years of editing experience. · Previous experience in the Canadian credit card industry or financial services would be ideal, but is not a requirement. · Some experience working alongside Compliance and/or Legal teams (nice to have but not a deal-breaker). · Journalism degree/diploma is a definite plus.
