Job Description :

Communications Coordinator (Co-op)


We have some big and exciting initiatives in 2018 and we’re looking for a Communications Coordinator for our Canadian Manulife team to help see them through to the finish line. In exchange, we’ll offer you a fast-paced, fun-filled, in-depth and action-packed time that gives you boatloads of experience to make all your friends jealous.

If you’ve got:

  • strong communications skills – see job title – with the ability to collaborate across multiple teams, using multiple channels.

  • a hamster thats always on the wheel - you’re a creative thinker and problem solver who is pumped to learn new skills, concepts, technologies and tools.

  • experience with MS Office software suite. Yes, even Excel.

  • a familiarity with design, digital and social media trends. (Snapchat experience doesn’t count).

  • experience with/a keen interest in digital communication technologies: email, mobile – including application development, webinars, web writing, social media, webcasts, blogs, etc.

  • strong time management skills with the ability to adjust multiple and changing priorities to meet tight deadlines.

  • a keen eye for detail and mad editing skills (found my type-o yet?).

  • a spot on your wall reserved for that post-secondary degree or diploma in communications, marketing or public relations. Kidding, no one hangs their diploma anymore, but you do need to be working on one.

Then we can offer:

  • a behind-the-scenes pass to the fast-paced marketing and communications world of a Fortune Global 500 company.  

  • an in-depth understanding of corporate structure, workflow and culture.

  • a lens into the full creative process, from conceptualization through to copy writing and translation, right down to design, deployment and evaluation.

  • an opportunity to take your editing and writing skills to all new levels, getting hands-on experience with multiple communication mediums.

  • a leg up on your classmates, working on prestigious recognition campaigns and international event promotions for our industries biggest producers.

  • experience working with an award-winning team and a co-op that will get your resume lit.

And you can meet your new friends at tons of Co-op events like our recent Execs-serve-ice-cream day, gingerbread house day, and pizza…there’s usually pizza involved.

You’ll also have lots of opportunities for professional growth. Linked In workshop? Yes! Personal branding workshop? Yes! Access to all our learning and development resources? You bet!  

We want you here as a Co-op. And we want to make your experience with us SO AMAZING that you join us in a fulltime after you graduate.  It’s really that simple.
