Talent Attraction team
Our small and mighty Employer Branding team sits within Talent Attraction, supporting campaigns and other brand activities across the business in Europe, Asia, and North America.

Operating somewhere between Branding, Marcom, and TA, we work with all areas of the business to support rapid growth, and to develop and build our brand into an innovative attraction and retention framework. We are underway on a journey to refresh our Talent Brand globally that reflects who we are today. This team is at the front and center of this effort.

The Role
We are looking for an uncommonly driven and creative soul to help scale our Employer Branding activities globally. As a leader of Employer Branding, you will be driving the effort in ensuring we are recognized as a Best Place to Work globally. You will play an instrumental role in helping to attract new colleagues as well as invigorate the internal talent marketplace. You will also effectively “own” our employer brand from the inside out, ensuring that earned, owned and paid media are on-brand and reflect our true voice. You will also be a key voice in the technology we use to build an outstanding candidate experience. As we grow, there are likely to be people management responsibilities. In the meantime, your influencing skills will be your superpower.

What you'll be doing

  • Lead the EB effort across our key offices globally to roll out the Employer Brand strategy in alignment with our corporate brand
  • Craft and implement a global content strategy and EB activation plan to both internal and external markets to drive awareness and engagement with the talent market
  • Lead the process of creation and distribution of original, compelling content to wow potential candidates — blogs, videos, job posts, social media, careers site, and digital marketing campaigns
  • Build, develop, and deliver bold talent attraction campaigns that strengthen the Guidewire brand and supports the vision to be seen as a global employer of choice
  • Share the insights across wider People function to inform our future talent initiatives using data
  • Work side by side with our People, Marketing, and Talent Attraction teams and our functional leaders to help them improve the quantity and quality of candidates in the hiring funnel, from awareness through to engagement and CTA/application
  • Review technology that is appropriate to ensure we are engaging with talent in the right way, crafting the best experience for talent out there (e.g. UGC video roll out, and other platforms to support engagement with talent)
  • Provide training and advice to peers globally on employer branding standard methodologies
  • Storytelling and content creation: Engage with internal leaders and employees and empower them to create stories, videos to tell their individual stories in a compelling way
  • Work with the regional TA teams to research and map relevant audiences
  • Lead the participation in relevant professional events (in person or virtual), both global and regional, while partnering with the TA team in making sure we improve lead generation
  • Ensure strong external relationships with universities (with our Campus team), media (with our PR & Marcom), and other third parties of interest (high affinity with the targeted audiences)
  • Chip in to the company-wide projects aiming to build the best employee experience. 

What you'll need to be successful

  • Trackable marketing, recruitment, employer brand experience with subject matter expertise in hyper-growth environments, along with a proven experience of leading a brand org
  • Project and program management skills
  • Experience in all aspects of people marketing including strategy, brand development, comms, digital and talent communications, creative design (or working closely with creative services team and/or vendors)
  • Delivery and result-orientated approach
  • Ability to navigate hyper-growing, complex organisation – think broadly to quickly understand priorities, join the dots and create compelling campaigns
  • Ability to build high quality, balanced relationships across many functions and levels within the organisation
  • A natural leader, inspiring, developing and leading teams from the front
  • Confident communication style with the ability to simplify sophisticated messages to be relevant to the audience
  • Passion for communications and people engagement 

Nice to have

  • Strong copywriting and reviewing skills
  • Strong analytical skills
  • Social media marketing skills
  • Can work to bring brand or employee value proposition to life
  • A great teammate who can collaborate across functions
  • Well organised and can keep cool when working to tight deadlines
