Internal Communications Specialist, Global Campaigns
With the movement behind Amazon’s new Leadership Principle, “Strive to be Earth’s Best Employer,” the global campaigns team has grown exponentially over the last year as we continue to pioneer new ways of reaching Operations employees in various languages and locales, motivate managers to become leaders, focus on the topics that really matter to our audience, and deliver stories that inspire mobility and teamwork. As such, we are seeking a high-judgement and self-motivated professional to be part of this fast-paced team to help us engage with Operations employees where they are – in Amazon facilities across the globe, support functional communications, and manage projects and programs into global implementation.
Key job responsibilities
As a member of this team, this individual must think like an architect: be able to convey vision and procedures through strong writing skills, pay attention to all of the details, be able to build new communications plans and messaging from the ground up with scalable solutions, use mechanisms and adopt efficiencies, and then share the blueprints with other communications practitioners for further development. The specialist role will support functional employer policy communications, be able to jump in to help with reactive issues, contribute to longform narrative storytelling, and build bridges with partner teams, such as those who engage associates in community outreach and philanthropic giving.
Some travel can be expected but not required for this role.
A day in the life
In this role, the specialist would be part of a close-knit team that comprise creative thinkers, tenured Amazonians, and former public affairs professionals. Outside of the campaigns team, this person will engage frequently with internal stakeholders within the larger Operations Internal Communications and the Operations Community Engagement organization; various teams within Human Resources (or PXT), Finance, Operations, PR, and Legal; and other support organizations.
