As a Senior Editor, you will:

 

  • Collaborate primarily with the European and UK-based thought-leadership teams on a four-stage process of thought leadership creation. The editor will help shape the idea development in the first three stages, from initial conception of the idea, to a more robust development of the idea and research plan, to a review of the key research findings as they support the idea. In these stages, the editor will participate in team calls, provide informed counsel, and rewrite text, as needed, in collaboration with the research lead and chief editor.
  • In the fourth stage of the process, the editor will work from an initial fully written draft (from the research team) on multiple iterations, rewriting, heavily editing, and shaping the content to the standards of the chief editor and research lead. These efforts will require deep knowledge of Accenture’s strategy; the range of previous publications and ongoing efforts in related areas; the desired business outcomes at the base of the thought leadership publication; and the key concerns of the involved marketing leaders.
  • In addition to the creation of core thought leadership publications, to be published on Accenture.com, the senior editor will draft or edit articles for publication in top management journals, as well as via social and traditional media. This will also include shaping and creating content for any new channels to market established by Accenture.
  • The editor in this role will have a special focus on thought leadership in for continental Europe and the UKI, and will establish a close working relationship with European research leaders, and also with select marketing and business leaders.
  • Accenture is a global company, and the editor will need to work across time zones and with people from dozens of countries, working in English but notably with many non-native English speakers.
