Supervisor, Special Events Marketing

Supervisor, Special Events Marketing

Toronto, ON

The City of Toronto’s Economic Development and Culture (EDC) Division is committed to making Toronto a place where business and culture thrive. As it works to advance prosperity, opportunity and liveability for all Torontonians, the Division fosters employment and investment, encourages cultural vibrancy through more and enhanced cultural experiences, and engages partners in the planning and development of economic and cultural resources.

As Supervisor, Special Events Marketing within EDC, you’ll play a key role in advancing the Division’s objectives by planning and implementing marketing and communications campaigns to promote a variety of divisional programs and services. These will include City-produced events; the City’s 10 museums and associate programs, collections and exhibitions; City supports for business; as well as other economic development and culture marketing initiatives.

Reporting to the Manager of Marketing, you’ll supervise major marketing campaigns as a member of integrated project teams, along with developing and executing local, national and international strategic marketing plans to meet divisional objectives, and driving program participation and event attendance. Equally comfortable working with traditional and digital media strategies, you’ll develop and implement print, broadcast, out-of-home, online, and programmatic advertisement campaigns, including media planning and buying, content research and development, copy writing, creative direction, and campaign management, including tracking, analyzing and optimizing digital advertising performance.

As Supervisor, Special Events Marketing, you’ll carry out the usual managerial and project management duties, supervising the day-to-day operations of staff as required, as well as the development, administration and monitoring of project timelines and assigned budget. Leading by example, you’ll ensure effective teamwork, high standards of work quality and organizational performance, and promote continuous learning and innovation, while overseeing the processing, tracking and submission of purchases, contracts and revenues, and ensuring that expenditures are controlled within approved budget limitations.

This leadership role calls for a post-secondary education in a discipline pertinent to the job function (marketing, communications, and public relations) or an approved combination of education and experience. Such credentials are complemented by extensive experience in marketing and communications related to culture and economic development, and in leading marketing and communications campaigns through all phases – from strategic planning to implementation and evaluation.

With considerable experience in developing and implementing traditional and digital advertising campaigns, you have advanced knowledge of the latest marketing and advertising trends. An excellent communicator with strong interpersonal and customer service skills, you’re adept at delivering effective presentations and at working effectively with, and supporting, multiple stakeholders (e.g., other staff, community groups, agencies, corporations, and business) as it relates to the Marketing portfolio.

Knowledge of the Municipal Freedom of Information and Protection of Privacy Act, the Employment Standards Act, the Ontario Human Rights Code, the Occupational Health and Safety Act, the Accessibility for Ontarians with Disabilities Act and other relevant employment legislation is required in this supervisory position, along with the ability to take initiative and work independently while functioning as a strong team player in fulfilling divisional goals. You can thrive in a high-stress, creative environment with frequent, competing deadlines and are, above all, prepared to support the Toronto Public Service values to ensure a culture that champions equity, diversity, and respectful workplaces.
