Overview: The&nbsp;<strong>Internal Communications and Community Engagement Specialist&nbsp;</strong>is responsible for providing internal communications support to all of Shareworks. It sounds pretty straight forward and it also sounds big &ndash; it&rsquo;s both! Enjoy building strategy as much as you love creating graphics or writing an email? Love thinking big and small? Then keep reading. If you love building your role as you go, this is also the role for you. If you love a role that has great processes and strategies already in place, one where you can maintain or make incremental improvements, this role is likely not for you. This role comes with exposure, if you are just as comfortable having a conversation with a company President about how best to communicate with internal stakeholders as you are working with a small team to determine the impacts of their changes to the rest of an organization, then this role is for you.<br /><br /> <p><strong>The Hook &ndash; what&rsquo;s in it for me?</strong></p> <p>Amazing team, sought after culture, incredible opportunity and lots of challenge. This is a unique opportunity for a Communications guru to work alongside some of the most talented professionals (debatable) in the world. Professional is debatable, talented is not!

This role provides you the opportunity to make a difference &ndash; truly make a difference. There is room to grow and room to do the things you&rsquo;ve been talking about doing elsewhere.
