The Communications function at Northrop Grumman's historic Space Park campus in Redondo Beach, CA is looking for experienced Marketing & Communications experts who love finding creative ways to engage, inform and influence audiences via content-driven, omni-channel communications campaigns.
If your skillset includes strong creative and storytelling abilities, superior organizational, project management and time management skills, a borderline-fanatical attention to detail while keeping the big picture in mind, and the ability to think and work quickly without sacrificing work quality, you might be our ideal candidate.
If you have experience using all those skills while working with senior-level executives in the aerospace & defense industry, you've already earned extra credit points.
More about you:
You're a seasoned corporate communications, marketing or PR professional who can identify a great story and tell it via multiple traditional and digital mediums.
You've served as a strategic communications advisor to senior-level leaders, and you understand the demands that come with that level of engagement.
You love brainstorming, and can pitch outside-the-box tactics better than anyone you know...
...but you're just as good at using traditional communications tactics to accomplish the goals your internal customers set.
You understand how to create short- and long-term communications campaign plans that are content-driven, targeted and measurable.
You're creative, tech-savvy, and fascinated by the latest communications tools and technologies.
You're familiar with -- and comfortable creating campaign plans that use -- all modern communications channels, both traditional and non-traditional.
You're experienced with digital and social media, and you have a deep understanding of how to communicate via digital channels.
You have excellent writing and presentation skills, and you're passionate about telling compelling stories with words, photos, videos, podcasts and graphics.
You live by prioritization and organization.
You're positive, poised and approachable, able to work independently and in partnership with senior executives/employees, and confident in offering communications counsel to business partners.
You thrive in fast-paced, action-oriented environments and are able to juggle multiple projects simultaneously, reprioritize quickly and meet deadlines.
You have a demonstrated understanding of communications and global topics, priorities and trends.
You're a little bit (or a lot bit) of a nerd, and you love all things related to space exploration and science.
