POSITION SUMMARY

Communication & Design, often referred to as C&D, is a specialty practice of HUB. We are a team of creative professionals consisting of writers, designers, consultants, project managers, and web and app developers. Our team creates multi-channel campaigns that include print, digital and web-based projects. Most of our work focuses on Employee Benefit Communications, whose aim is to engage employees and make their benefits information easy to understand. If you’ve ever received a work email letting you know you only have two days left to enroll in health insurance, that’s us! Now we’re looking for an experienced temporary writer to come help keep our work fresh, inclusive and fun.

Our writers need to write grammatically correct copy – but it’s just as important to engage your inner whimsy and creativity to ensure employees want to read our deliverables. Your mission is to make insurance easy to understand and even – dare we say? – fun.

Our team of professionals embraces humor, creativity and individuality. Our team members include pet lovers, crafters, Netflix couch potatoes, board game collectors and more, so don’t hide your spark! We’d love to know what makes you tick.
