Job Description:

WHAT YOU WILL BE DOING: Your goal in this position is to help Steelcase salespeople throughout North America and across the globe communicate our value proposition to customers in the most compelling way possible. You will use interviewing skills - asking great questions and listening for key points - to craft custom pieces that capture the Steelcase brand without losing the voice of the salesperson the customer knows best. You'll be a key contributor to some of the biggest sales opportunities Steelcase encounters, as well as a collaborator with a global team of project managers, graphic designers and technical writers who also support our business. WHO YOU ARE: You are a curious person who is at ease talking to others. A knack for asking the right questions is something that comes naturally to you - even in talking to senior leaders.

You must be able to understand the big picture and the details that will best help tell the story to the customer and addresses their specific needs. Through a combination of interviewing and research, you can create very concise yet compelling business writing. Using the information at hand in the most creative way is a key skill. YOUR FUTURE TEAM: We are a dynamic, collaborative team whose purpose is to help Steelcase win business. We do over 500 projects a year, and we do so with pride. We work with global sales professionals to provide visual and written support to tell the story that answers the question, "Why Steelcase?" We are an in-house creative team unlike any you have seen before. We are high-energy, customer-facing and we drive creativity. We strive for your growth and we will provide you with the resources to be successful. DESIRED SKILLS & QUALIFICATIONS: * 1-3+ years of writing experience in a business environment. * Bachelor's degree in writing or journalism. * Proficient in use of the entire Microsoft Suite of products, including cloud storage and collaboration. * Experience working with deadlines, meeting milestones and being an accountable member of team-based work. Please submit professional writing portfolio with application. WHO WE ARE AND WHY PEOPLE CHOOSE TO WORK WITH US: Let's start with the cool workspace-after all, that's our business. But that's just one of the ways we help people like you do their best work. We encourage curiosity and critical thinking, we embrace well-being in its broadest sense and we provide mentoring and inspiration at every step of your career journey. For more than a century, Steelcase has built a legacy on doing what's right and using our business as a force for good. You have an opportunity to step into that history and push us forward - to treat people with dignity and respect, to tell the truth, keep commitments, protect the environment, build positive relationships, and excel. These values help us create communities of belonging and shared learning, where we can come together to be inspired, to innovate, create and grow. We hope that you will consider sharing this journey with us and bringing your talents and unique perspectives with you. We're building something better together - and people like you are at the heart of it all. WORK ENVIRONMENT: Flexible work is at the center of our hybrid work strategy. Flexibility will vary by role and team, and while the office is the primary hub for doing work, employees are trusted and empowered to manage their schedule and workloads.
