  • Designing, developing and implementing our strategy for communicating remotely over SMS, phone, and automated phone calls with our customers.

  • Designing, field testing and implementing SMS and automated call scripts for remote training on product and process communication, and ensuring alignment with our overall customer communication strategy.

  • Work cross-functionally to ensure all comms and scripts are aligned to our overall customer communications strategy.

  • Define a clear process to measure the impact and effectiveness of communications, and clearly tell what is working or not.

  • Work across departments to ensure their
    communications needs are met and that Apollo has a unified voice across all communications.

  • Recruit, train and manage a high performing team to ensure timely and quality delivery of the communications mandate.

  • Coordinate the creation of communications materials ranging from internal scripts for call center functions, to customer messaging content, to marketing collateral such as fliers and posters, to ensure they are in line with our overall communications strategy.
