A strong content strategist should have a broad range of content skills, including writing, communications, research, planning, marketing, and more. Content Strategists should know how the product and/or web design and development process works and understand how to analyze user data.

To help you hire the right candidate, we put together a sample content strategist job description. This description is based on dozens of content strategist jobs from our Content Jobs board and our deep experience consulting on hiring for content roles. It lists all of the core skills you should look for in a content strategist. You can use this sample job description as the foundation for your next content strategist hire and build in specifics for your company or organization.
