The Role

The Communications team at General Motors focuses on impact and driving transformation through storytelling. It is home to the company’s Employee Engagement, Vehicle Brand, Corporate, Tech & Innovation, and International Communications teams. We are broad thinkers, team first, and subject matter experts in our field. We have a relentless focus on our mission and our customers. We collaborate across the business, lead with insights, and always ask how we can use communications to add value to the enterprise. At GM, maintaining the trust of our customers is paramount.

We are seeking a corporate communications expert to lead comms around key areas like privacy, cybersecurity, and safety. The ideal candidate has a keen sense of how to develop a proactive media strategy while also handling any crisis that pops up. In this role, you will have the opportunity to help shape an industry-defining strategy around privacy policies and practices, consumer data control, and transparency — increasingly important focus areas in the automotive industry. You’ll report to the Head of Corporate Affairs and work closely with GM’s Chief Trust and Privacy Officer as well as other executives. 

What You’ll Do (Responsibilities)

  • Lead communications and shape key decisions around privacy, cybersecurity, and safety as well as work on other key policy and regulatory issues.

  • Develop and execute a proactive strategy around privacy, as well as reactively manage high-profile news cycles.

  • Craft and land our policy narratives with stakeholders — business/tech/DC media, consumers, and influential voices in the space.

  • Provide strategic counsel to the Chief Trust and Privacy Officer and other executives across GM. Work closely with cross-functional teams, including Product, Public Policy, and Legal to anticipate how our products and services may impact GM and customers.

  • Stay informed about the quickly evolving space, including relevant legislation, in order to help the company see around corners and anticipate risks.

  • Develop and maintain relationships with privacy advocacy groups to educate and update them regularly on GM’s products and practices.

  • Speak regularly with reporters, acting as a resource and ensuring they understand GM’s perspective.

[Additional Description]

Your Skills & Abilities (Required Qualifications)

  • 10+ years working in communications and/or policy and regulatory spaces.

  • Ability to proactively develop and drive a strategic communications plan, while also managing tough news cycles calmly and quickly.

  • Familiarity with the privacy space and a good sense of third-party advocacy groups that drive conversations around privacy.

  • Ability to develop relationships externally and internally and influence senior executives. Ideally you have experience navigating a large and complex organization.

  • Outstanding written and media relations skills. You know that comms is much more than writing media statements. You’re creative and come up with new ways to engage on important issues.

  • Excellent judgment — you know how to plan ahead to avoid a crisis and when to escalate issues.

  • You stay calm under pressure, move fast, and want to have fun along the way
