Our ambition is to be one of Canada’s leading and most innovative property and casualty insurers. We can’t do that without our people, so we embrace and encourage a culture that’s collaborative, ambitious, rewarding, and empowering.

We offer a flexible, hybrid work experience where employees work from the office and virtually depending on the type of work they are doing and who they are working with. Bring your true self and be a part of our journey. It’s better here.

As the leader of Sonnet’s growing Digital Content team within Sonnet’s Customer Experience division, you’ll be a key driver of our content strategy, from owning the end-to-end user experience from a digital content perspective to helping us deliver on our brand with insightful content that wins the hearts and minds of consumers across all our digital channels to meet our company goals. You’ll:

  • Take the lead on managing content strategy, a compelling roadmap, and editorial calendar to optimize and scale digital content to drive organizational objectives effectively.
  • Lead efforts for content optimization across channels, ensuring a seamless and optimized user experience to enhance brand visibility, engagement, conversion, and retention.
  • Review, edit, and give direction as needed, to maintain our brand’s consistent tone & voice, as well as our product value propositions, to internal teams and other stakeholders across our customer communications channels, including our website, mobile app, emails, chat, SMS, etc. 
  • Work cross functionally with business stakeholders, and collaboratively with our team of SEO, Design, CRM, UX, and Development specialists, to deliver:

    • User-first web content that is optimized for search engines 
    • Clear and concise micro copy that guides users through their journey
    • Digital content that meets accessibility requirements, quality and brand standards 
  • Develop A/B test strategies for key landing pages to increase conversions iteratively.

    • Identify opportunities and actionable recommendations
    • Improve content development and iteration
    • Inform conversion rate optimization (CRO)
  • Manage a team of content writers and freelancers, providing guidance, mentorship, and fostering a collaborative and performance-driven team culture

  • Educational degree, diploma, or equivalent in related field
  • Your strategic mindset will be crucial in identifying opportunities to enhance Sonnet’s brand, boost conversion rates, enhance customer experience, and improve organic visibility across channels
  • Passion for writing and copyediting – and you’ve got the portfolio to prove it. (Bonus points for a variety of channels and formats)
  • A strong understanding of the role that digital content plays in a consumer journey (and how content supports growth for the broader organization)
  • Experience managing direct reports. You’re a remarkable leader, a great people manager, and a passionate coach and mentor
  • You’re comfortable leading change and giving direction, and getting feedback, to maintain quality content, from both internal and external stakeholders
  • Experience with C-level and stakeholder engagement, particularly aligning business goals and impacts on content strategy and objectives
  • Strong project management skills to manage long-term strategic initiatives, complex cross-team projects, and a steady flow of day-to-day smaller requests
  • You’re data-driven and have in-depth experience measuring a content team’s performance in tools, like Google Analytics, Search Console, SEMrush, and CRM’s
  • Experience working with a CMS and you are a fast learner when it comes to using new platforms and software
