Positions in this function write and edit material for various organization publications, including but not limited to internal communications, speeches, press releases, and on-line content.

Primary Responsibilities:
  • Write and edit a wide range of pieces, printed, electronic, scripting, Web and more, delivering clear, easy-to-understand, consumer-oriented copy that makes the reader feel like the piece is from a well-informed friend, while capturing warmth that has a certain level of informality. Maintaining an undertone of professionalism is key to credibility.
  • Understand Optum's various products and services, including what they mean to the people who use them. This is critical in writing copy that answers the questions, What's in it for me when I use it. It's also critical to accuracy to minimize legal risk.
  • Understand the Optum audience demographics, types of customers and other elements that ultimately need to be reflected in how you speak to consumers.
  • Implement various reading levels and check the levels with each draft. Most materials should be between 7th and 8th grade levels. When creating materials, strive to convey meaningful information and use a style that respects the reader.

  • Use top-notch time management techniques to help you juggle the many deadlines and projects that may be in various phases.
  • Work as independently as possible and be a critical thinker that is, when you bring questions and problems to your manager, offer possible solutions. Better yet, just keep her informed about how you intend to handle an issue. Stretch those emerging leadership muscles.
  • Seek and use resources within or outside the company for your continuing development.
  • Stay informed about health issues and overall trends in health care.
  • Follow company policies and procedures, particularly in relation to legalities and compliance.
