St. Louis, MO
Do you enjoy distilling technical concepts down to simple, easy-to-understand language, giving folks an “Oh, now I get it!” moment? Or perhaps you like finding new and engaging ways to reach new audiences with important concepts?
We are looking for an Economic Editor to help further our communications, transparency and outreach efforts. You will help shape external communication offerings to reach a general audience not as familiar with the work of the St. Louis Fed and the Federal Reserve as a whole. You will be a major contributor to the Bank’s content strategies and platforms, including publications, blogs, social media and public event listings.
As part of the St. Louis Fed’s External Engagement and Corporate Communications division, you will perform a variety of important functions at the Bank, including editing and promoting economic content on stlouisfed.org to a large audience. You will consult with multiple Bank departments on content strategy and display. You will also play a central role as guardian of the Bank’s reputation, ensuring that content is proofed and presented with a diverse audience in mind.
• Be the managing editor of the Bank’s Regional Economist publication, which features research done by economists and other experts around the Bank.
• Provide essential editorial support (writing, editing, proofing) for select blogs and other content covering economics, personal finance and economic education, and community development.
• Assist internal Bank departments with editing requests for public events, marketing and other materials.
• Support the Bank’s digital communications efforts, including podcasts, social media and other channels, by providing and editing content, aiding in the development of marketing materials to launch targeted campaigns and lending good strategic insight in evaluating the success of content marketing efforts.
