Job Description

What We Have Done: Recently we launched a new brand platform that speaks to the inherent connection between a person’s financial security (Wealth) and the impact that their overall physical and mental wellness (Health) can have on it. This insight, and mission to improve, is enshrined in our brand of Wealth + HealthSM. 

What You Need to Do: This position of Senior Writer/Editor will be responsible for concepting, writing and editing blogs, infographic content, social posts, email content, product marketing materials, and multimedia scripts to expand awareness of the brand, connect with clients, and generate leads.

What Success Looks Like: This role requires the ability to roll up your sleeves and craft stories emphasizing our brand message with all product lines as well as review and edit team members’ work. We need you to be an agent for collaboration, advocating for and managing relational activities with a wide range of key stakeholders including sales, compliance, the broader marketing team, and related business partners.

What You Need:

  • Bachelor’s degree in marketing, communications, advertising, journalism, English, or related field, or equivalent experience.
