Position Summary

Senior Editor and Content Strategist, Deloitte Insights

Deloitte Services LP is seeking a senior editor and content strategist to join Deloitte Insights, the flagship publication for Deloitte, to strategize and develop thought leadership. This professional will be responsible for contributing their editing, content strategy and storytelling expertise to increase audience engagement with Deloitte’s research and insights.

Deloitte Insights publishes 400+ multimedia content projects annually, including print, online, interactive, infographics, podcasts and videos intended to educate, inform and inspire Deloitte clients and prospective clients on the business issues that matter most to their strategic agendas. From digital transformation, to ESG, to talent management and employee well-being, Deloitte Insights publishes data-driven thought leadership for global C-suite and board-level executives across industries.

As a senior editor and content strategist for Deloitte Insights, you’ll work with thought leaders and research professionals, production editors, designers, and web developers on thought leadership projects from articles and research reports to data visualizations to videos. You’ll be paired with one of Deloitte’s research centers to help develop and execute on the annual content plan, determine the appropriate content strategy and channel strategy for each project, and determine and achieve the optimal storytelling approach to increase audience engagement. You’ll be a champion for our audience, with a deep understanding of their content consumption behaviors and preferences based on research in collaboration with our audience development team. Working closely with our editorial, production, design, UX, and technology teams, you’ll apply an outside-in lens to content planning and storytelling, and deliver our content via a compelling, digital-first experience.

The ideal candidate will have a demonstrated track record of successful collaboration with both internal and external partners—including senior business leaders and premiere subject matter experts—to plan and develop high-quality, well-differentiated, relevant, and actionable thought leadership for executives. The candidate should know how to take a journalistic approach to content development, understand the dynamics of modern digital publishing, and have a strong perspective on best practices for optimizing business content. The ideal candidate can rapidly bring ideas to life; excels at analyzing information and synthesizing insights into compelling narratives; and can work successfully both independently and as part of a global, multifunctional team.

Your responsibilities will include:

  • Leveraging your own business knowledge and storytelling expertise when partnering with researchers and subject matter experts to develop and refine thought leadership content plans and projects
  • Collaborating with aligned organizations to co-create thought leadership
  • Serving as the content strategist to help determine the right content format(s) to suit a project’s target audience, content substance, and purpose/objective, as well as its distribution/deployment plan, including planning and executing on multimedia content packages
  • Acting as the storytelling strategist to ensure that each content project is clear and compelling—that the story flows logically and ensures reader/viewer/listener engagement from start to finish, the ideas are well-differentiated and communicated accurately and directly, the phrasing is dynamic and conversational, the overall content project will be perceived by target audiences as high-quality and high-value, and the content will achieve the content creators’ objectives
  • Reviewing proposals and drafts being considered for publication on Deloitte Insights against Deloitte’s channel strategy and DI’s quality criteria; providing feedback to authors to help improve proposal/report quality
  • Working closely with authors to ghostwrite, rewrite, or substantively edit thought leadership content to ensure quality, readability, and audience engagement while maintaining the authors’ voices
  • Editing copy for grammar, punctuation, readability, flow, and style
  • Coordinating with authors, designers, marketing, and other internal teams to ensure that project timelines are accurately set and met
  • Coaching Deloitte content creators on language usage, writing style, storytelling effectiveness, and Deloitte Insights’ production processes
  • Guiding/mentoring junior editors and reviewing their work

Our DI publishing team comprises editors plus production, audience development, and digital operations professionals located around the world. The senior editor and content strategist will report to DI’s editor in chief in the United States.

We have been informed of instances where jobseekers are led to believe of fictitious job opportunities with Deloitte US (“Deloitte”). In one or more such cases, false promises of actual or potential selection, or initiation or completion of the recruitment formalities appear to have been or are being made. Some jobseekers appear to have been asked to pay money to specified bank accounts of individuals or entities as a condition of their selection for a ‘job’ with Deloitte. These individuals or entities are in no way connected with Deloitte and do not represent or otherwise act on behalf of Deloitte.

We would like to clarify that:

  • At Deloitte, ethics and integrity are fundamental and not negotiable.
  • We are against corruption and neither offer bribes nor accept them, nor induce or permit any other party to make or receive bribes on our behalf.
  • We have not authorized any party or person to collect any money from jobseekers in any form whatsoever for promises of getting jobs in Deloitte.
  • We consider candidates on merit and that we provide an equal opportunity to eligible applicants.
  • No one other than designated Deloitte personnel (e.g., a Deloitte recruiter or Deloitte hiring partner) is permitted to extend any job offer from Deloitte.

Anyone who at any time has made or makes any payment to any party in exchange for promises of job or selection for a job with Deloitte or any matter related to this (including those for ‘registration’, ‘verification’ or ‘security deposit’) or otherwise engages with any such person who has made or makes fraudulent promises or offers, does so (or has done so) entirely at their own risk. Deloitte takes no responsibility or liability for any such unauthorized or fraudulent actions or engagements. We encourage jobseekers to exercise caution.
