The work:
• Work with the Head of PR to set the title and country publicity strategy for campaigns that tie our titles and talent to our brand;
• Act as a strategic thought partner to cross-functional teams, including establishing strong relationships with content leads and teams around the world;
• Increase and encourage team collaboration with cross-functional partners such as events, marketing and social teams;
• Identify key challenges and early positioning to inform campaign and country level strategy;
• Work with the team to develop cultural moments for our content across all relevant genres that are locally relevant and resonate with our consumers;
