Communications Consultant

Organization Name: SGI
Position Title: Communications Consultant
Location: Regina
Position Term: Full Time, Permanent
Closing Date: 29-Aug-2018

Description:

Are you an experienced, enthusiastic communications pro with social media #skills and a knack for news releases? Are you up to the challenge of empathetically responding to customer concerns, or doing an on-camera media interview about traffic safety or insurance-related topics? Can you juggle multiple assignments and handle a bit of chaos? 
If your answer is “yes,” we might have a job for you. 

SGI’s Communications Department is looking for a Communications Consultant to join our Media Team in Regina. We need someone who has professional communications experience in social media and media relations. (Sorry, having a personal Facebook account isn’t enough.) 

You’ll lead SGI’s social media strategy, and be responsible for analysis and measurement. You’ll work with colleagues to deliver social media content with a strong focus on traffic safety and terrific customer experiences. 

You’ll write eye-catching news releases with memorable messaging and you will plan media announcements to deliver them. As back-up to the Media Relations Manager, you’ll respond to media inquiries and work with people across our company to help reporters get the information they need. Yes, you’ll have to do interviews sometimes. 

It’s a job that’s fast-paced, fun, fulfilling and – we’re not going to fudge facts – occasionally frustrating. 

But you’ll be working with great people as part of a great company, and your work will be an important part of making Saskatchewan’s roads safer. We’re sure you’d like this job. 

Key Accountabilities

You’ll write a variety of materials for a variety of audiences ensuring all your work meets corporate and industry standards (includes standard corporate communications and social media platforms). 

You’ll work with management, and colleagues in government departments and agencies, and/or other stakeholder groups, ensuring communication is coordinated with consistent and timely messages. You’ll also act as corporate spokesperson in the corporate spokesperson’s absence and assist the senior management with issues management and crisis communications tactics.
