At-Bay’s Marketing team is helping grow At-Bay’s business, sharing our vision with the world, building our brand, and communicating the value of our insurance and security products to the market.

In this position, you will have the opportunity to be a strategic growth partner to the At-Bay business and work alongside and in collaboration with all of its key marketing practice leaders and stakeholders to deliver PR programs and results that help support the business’ growth goals and priorities at the organizational level. This includes insurance product marketing, security marketing, broker marketing, corporate marketing, and content marketing (which supports risk).
Using your knowledge of the media and the different PR channels available to you to drive for impact, you will help to create a strategic PR plan to support the growth goals and priorities of each key business division within At-Bay. You will also be responsible for executing on these plans. This will include things like identifying and managing award submissions, building relationships with analysts in order to get into a report, pursuing speaking engagements at events, and working with stakeholders on bylines and thought leadership content for media placement.
This person will also have the unique opportunity to drive for impact at the corporate level and bring all of the disparate initiatives together into one master cross-functional communications plan and calendar.

At this time you will have started to come up with a list of what the tablestakes are that you need to deliver in order to successfully support the goals of the team - and what are nice to haves. By this time you will have also taken over full ownership of all the maintenance of our media lists and coverage tracking, and supporting with preparations for any media briefings, announcements or events we have coming up.
- By six months you will have already built out a master cross-functional news media and PR promotion calendar built out, which shows exactly how and where we plan to invest our resources in comms, and on what, and you will have also begun to execute on it.
