Description

About this role

Your team:

The Marketing team at BlackRock is a dynamic, global function that plays a critical role in helping drive many of the firm's most urgent cross-functional initiatives. Together with our partners (both internal and external), we create the conditions that maximize business outcomes for the firm.

We specialize in a diverse range of functions to provide robust campaigns, advertising, communications, training, investment & educational material, and events, all supported by global centers of excellence spanning content strategy, creative, research & analytics, and digital platforms & experiences.

BlackRock is changing the way the financial services sector talks to its audiences. To help do this, we are recruiting into our talented internal creative agency in Atlanta. Part of a wider 35+ strong Global Creative team, we are responsible for creating category-leading, purpose-based marketing communications and design work, helping redefine marketing in the FinTech industry.

The Associate Creative Director role is located in Atlanta, GA and requires 3 days in the BLK - Atlanta office.



Your role and impact

We are looking for a senior level agency or inhouse creative/designer who can lead, concept and visualize complex concepts and information into clear, innovative and effective solutions (medium agnostic), impacting how BlackRock is perceived to its employees, clients and prospects.

Your responsibilities

  • Ability to create ad-agency-quality 'Big Ideas' that entice the target audience and stand us apart from our competitors. Bring these ideas to life in bold, unexpected and engaging ways across multiple audience touchpoints.

  • A creative pluralist, you will work across digital, offline and experiential marketing.

  • A creative that can make a brief come to life, combining the power of both the words and art.

  • Expert visual designer, but not just cosmetic design: we need a creative thinker with flair and imagination, an ideas person with a nose for marketing communications.

  • Digital, design or advertising agency experience an advantage, including experiential marketing agencies, designing immersive physical environments.

  • Visual storytelling, turning complex content into simple, beautiful, visual stories.

  • If you can confidently answer these questions, then we'd love to meet you:

    • How do we communicate BlackRock's analytical prowess combined with its human approachability in a single, fresh and contemporary look and feel across web, video and live experience?

    • The value proposition for a product launch is "Sustainable investing means doing well while doing what's right" - what is the strapline or big idea for video of a $1m-budget conference? What's the smart, memorable graphic idea that communicates this?

You have...

  • Exceptional design skills: a storyteller mindset.

  • 10 years' experience in agency or high-quality internal studio.

  • Standout portfolio of work and evidence of being author of the idea, not just executing the design.

  • Undergraduate degree in art direction, design etc, preferred.

  • Software skills:

    • Proficient user of Adobe InDesign, Illustrator, Photoshop, Sketch, PowerPoint, etc.

    • Developing knowledge or interest in any or all of the following: Aftereffects, Premiere, Figma, etc. a plus.

  • 'Second string' skills (eg UX/UI, video, video animation, photography, illustration, etc) an advantage.

  • Understanding of financial services an advantage but not pre-requisite.

  • Soft skills

  • Dynamic and driven collaborator.

  • Innovative and creative approach.

  • Proactive and can-do.

  • No fear of deadlines and a calm demeanour under pressure.

  • First class interpersonal skills and good presentation skills. Ability to confidently 'sell' creative concepts to clients.


Our benefits

To help you stay energized, engaged and inspired, we offer a wide range of benefits including a strong retirement plan, tuition reimbursement, comprehensive healthcare, support for working parents and Flexible Time Off (FTO) so you can relax, recharge and be there for the people you care about.

Our hybrid work pilot

BlackRock's current hybrid work pilot is designed to help you experience the best of both worlds: the opportunity to connect with colleagues in person and the flexibility to work remotely, with greater time to focus on what's important to you. In line with local health guidance and regulations, employees are generally expected to work 3 days in the office and 2 days from home (on average) each week. For some business groups, more time may be required in the office, while greater flexibility may be in place for others. Our "One BlackRock" culture means you'll be supported to collaborate with your new colleagues while bringing your full self to work - wherever you are.

The health, safety and well-being of our people will always be our top priorities; we will continue to monitor local conditions and health advisories in making decisions about our work environments.

This mission would not be possible without our smartest investment - the one we make in our employees. It's why we're dedicated to creating an environment where our colleagues feel welcomed, valued and supported with networks, benefits and development opportunities to help them thrive.
