Your team

You will be a member of the Americas Corporate Communications team, reporting to a Vice President on the team.

Job description

The Analyst on the Americas Corporate Communications team, based in New York, will be a critical team member supporting the communications initiatives related to BlackRock’s commercial priorities. The role will be responsible for developing and executing communications initiatives, including proactive commercially oriented campaigns, as well as managing corporate and reputational risk.

What will you be doing?

  • Help the team, including Associates and Vice Presidents, manage reactive media inquiries in a timely and efficient manner as well as contribute to the overall function of the Comms team.
  • Media monitor in real time and flag relevant issues and coverage to key stakeholders.
  • Support the team prior to, during, and after media interviews, including developing the first draft of briefing documents, and when appropriate, brief key spokespeople in advance with the relevant key messages.
  • Coordinate the planning and implementation of media events, roundtables and press conferences.
  • Help maintain and update narratives about BlackRock, relevant to the key business.
  • Develop first drafts of media pitches, press releases and supporting materials for key campaigns and media launches.
  • Develop working relationships with business/financial and trade media across channels (print, broadcast and digital/social).
  • Support the rollout of communications strategies to deliver BlackRock content to targets through a multi-channel approach, including earned media, social media and owned digital properties.

What are we looking for?

  • We’re looking for people with a passion for the news, an interest in how it is made and why it is important in shaping the reputation of companies and individuals.
  • You should be highly-motivated and well-organized. You must have an excellent work ethic and be comfortable with multitasking while in a fast-paced environment with the ability to handle tight deadlines.
  • Strong project management skills are essential as is an eye for detail.
  • Excellent verbal and written communication skills are a must and you need to be comfortable working and interacting with leaders up and down the company as well as with colleagues, journalists and other external content producers around the world.
  • Experience in either corporate communications or marketing (agency or in-house) is ideal (1+ year). If it happens to be in the financial services industry then that’s even better (though not essential).
  • Bachelor’s degree with strong record of academic achievement is critical for us to get a sense of your sharp mind, inquisitive nature and an interest in the world around us.
