The Brooks Group - Junior Marketing Content Developer

Do you enjoy producing content that educates readers? Do you have an eye for layout? Do you simply love marketing? The answer “yes” to all these questions is what we’re looking for.

The Brooks Group is a globally recognized B2B corporate sales training company based in Greensboro, NC and we’re in rapid growth mode.

A key component of our growth is inbound lead generation via Internet Marketing. We’re currently seeking a junior writer to help us develop loads and loads of Internet-friendly content to help educate and compel our potential customers to reach out to us for our products and services.

The Brooks Group’s marketing team is growing and redefining what it means to plan, produce, distribute, and analyze B2B content. We’ve already launched tons of flagship, fun, and in-depth content. A junior writer on our team would help extend the life of that content by producing similar snackable bites for our readers.

For example, a flagship ebook on corporate sales training could be extended with an sales training checklist, a best practices guide, or educational video. Todd Henry once said, "Innovation is the collective grasp for 'next,' and it's always built on the work of those who went before."

The junior writer will also be responsible for interviewing internal subject matter experts on an ongoing basis about topics involving sales effectiveness and will take the information uncovered to develop ebooks, blog posts, Tweets and LinkedIn posts.

We’ve built the foundation, apply to lead the innovation of it!

The role requires:
• A passion for writing, writing, and more writing.
• An ability to package your writing uniquely, not just in paragraphs blog-style but other formats, too (whether by designing your own templates or taking ours and getting creative in storytelling)
• The ability to publish at high volumes (think 6 - 8 pieces a month).
• A drive to learn B2B lead generation methods tied to inbound marketing.
• A natural interest in all things digital -- social, email, landing pages, etc.
• Attention to detail. Test: use the word “transform” in your cover letter.
• Be able to work independently or collaboratively as each project requires.
• A high degree of entrepreneurial spirit and creative energy.
• Presence in the office -- hours negotiable based on other projects/classes.

It would be nice if you have:
• InDesign experience
• U/X experience

To Apply:
• Submit a resume, cover letter, and two writing examples to showcase your creativity and writing prowess.
• Only applications with strong writing samples will be considered.
(TIP: It’s not about where the content was published, it’s about how well that content is written and/or designed/presented).
• You will receive an online assessment to complete as part of the selection process.
• Submit application materials to abennett@thebrooksgroup.com
