We’re so much more than just our numbers and we’re looking for someone with a strong, demonstrated understanding of the world of finance, investor relations, governance and business results, who is gifted at translating numbers into compelling messages that resonate with investors, team members, partners and the business media. 
 

It’s an exciting time to join the organization as we evolve and expand our business segments - including TELUS Health and TELUS Agriculture - leveraging technology to answer some of the world’s most pressing challenges.

You will help build and support an inspiring, modernized shareholder communications strategy that engages and meets the needs of our shareholders, customers and team members and one that contemplates our ever-increasing digital world. You will join a collaborative and innovative team, open to new ideas and committed to delivering excellence.

 

Here’s what you’ll do:

 

  • Quarterly earnings
    • Partnering with investor and media relations, support the development of our corporate messaging, quarterly press releases, executive speaking notes and briefing materials
    • With a focus on consistency, work with internal stakeholders to amplify across internal channels

    • Support the development and delivery of a holistic content strategy to integrate and amplify our corporate messages across the entirety of our shareholder communications vehicles, including but not limited to, leveraging content from our reports to bolster executive visibility and external thought leadership
    • Support the creation of the creative theme and design of existing communications and reports - influenced by the messaging and stories we have to tell
  • Identify and execute on new content opportunities - developing and sourcing content, coordinating and aligning activities to deliver a cohesive and compelling story across a wide variety of audiences (internal, external, shareholders etc.)
