Quietly is a full-service content marketing agency that offers services across the entire lifecycle of content marketing, from discovery and strategy to content creation and amplification. Quietly partners with the world’s leading brands to understand how content drives their business, devising strategies and executing along the way.
Working in collaboration with our Strategy, Content and Production teams, a Client Partner provides leadership to our high profile enterprise clients and is responsible for all aspects of client delivery. It’s a combination of strategy, planning, development, project management, client servicing, consulting, advisory, and business development/revenue generation all in one. It requires you stay current, with content and marketing trends, including the shift in distribution across converging media channels and best/next practices when it comes to processes and cross-functional workflows. You bring the confidence to work on completely new types of projects, challenging longstanding assumptions, and defending recommendations strategically, tactically and logistically.
This is a full-time opportunity offering a competitive base salary, 3-weeks vacation, comprehensive benefits package, gym access, and working from our converted two-storey apartment-office in the heart of historic Gastown. If these values resonate, we’d love to hear from you.
