Administration & Customer Service, Legal, Marketing & Product Development
Are you an organized person who enjoys working collaboratively to lead creative projects from concept to completion in an effective and efficient way? Do you thrive on working with a positive, upbeat team in a fast-paced environment to create amazing work? If so, here’s a great opportunity to join an energetic team of designers and copywriters with a digital bent who are creating some innovative products at a dynamic global law firm.
Orrick currently has an exciting opening in the Global Operations Center (GOC) in Wheeling WV for a Digital and Creative Project Specialist in the Communications department.
About this Job:
You’ll work closely with internal team members (creative, communications, marketing, sales, IT) and external partners (vendors, outside agencies), to make sure we meet all project deadlines. Using your excellent organizational and project management skills, you will effectively execute high-profile, time-sensitive projects, and you’ll play a critical role in ensuring projects are aligned to business needs, managed and completed on time and on budget.
In this role, you will:
Serve as the high-level project lead for key firm digital and print endeavors, including advertising assets, presentations, brochures, e-reports, events, signage, emails and other projects. You will effectively manage project intake, analyze and assign resources and personnel, and develop project timelines and key deliverable dates – then manage to those dates, tracking progress, mitigating risks and communicating throughout the process to completion.
Guide the strategic planning and execution of select digital/online campaign initiatives from beginning to end, working in collaboration with other groups to ensure projects are fully scoped out at the project intake level, aligned to the firm’s strategy and fit within the firm’s existing digital ecosystem. Projects may include but are not limited to new digital initiatives, assets, webpages and overseeing the creation and execution of online marketing and social campaigns (unpaid and paid), working closely with the communications team and external agencies as needed.
Request and review proposals from print vendors, photographers and other contractors as needed. You will work with third-party vendors coordinating proofs, obtaining approvals and facilitating print production and fulfillment between points of contact within Orrick’s global organization. In addition to handling projects, you will assist with simple design production tasks, consistent with the firm’s branding standards (such as copy changes, generating PDFs, etc.). This role requires effective and thorough proofing of outgoing collateral for copy accuracy and brand consistency prior to team or client review.
You will be process-oriented – strive to work efficiently and effectively, adhere to processes where they exist, and proactively identify opportunities to create and implement processes where they do not exist but could increase operational efficiency.
Manage several of the creative team’s key systems including the firm’s marketing collateral and promotional item website, the digital asset management system, and the overall communications team budget.
If managing the creative and digital workflow of a dynamic, collaborative team of designers, writers, technologists and business partners sounds like a role you’d excel in, we want to talk to you.
