As a Marketing and Communications Manager, you will be supporting the Real Estate and Workplace Services (REWS) team and will devise and implement creative, inspiring and integrated communications and marketing solutions to help leaders communicate effectively with their global teams, internal clients and Googlers. You’ll directly lead marketing and communications for multiple complex projects and change initiatives that help bring our iconic REWS brand to life and convey the intentionality behind our spaces and services, ensuring they are implemented successfully. You’ll craft narratives that stick and make the complex easy to understand for a variety of audiences and channels (email, presentations, videos, talking points, articles, websites, social media and other Google channels).
