Do you want to make a difference in the world with your PR career? Do you want to work with organisations on the cutting-edge of their relevant industries?
We’re on the hunt for our next Account Executive / Senior Account Executive who is passionate about working with future defining business and technology brands like ours.
As a ‘Slinger’ you’ll be part of a team with a mission. We’re here to unearth, craft, and share the stories of the world’s most ambitious brands, shaping the future.
The role you’ll play
Our Account Executives / Senior Account Executives know how to get stuff done. With a nose for news and passion for storytelling, you are the intermediary between your clients and the outside world. You’ll manage the channels which matter most to your clients, producing compelling written content, keeping clients updated on breaking news and issues, and building lasting relationships with media, influencers and more. You’re a clued-up self-starter who ensures campaigns are always well-informed and well-connected, providing support to wider team members as appropriate.
What we’re looking for
- 1-2+ years PR and communications experience, preferably at an agency but not a must
- Excited by business and technology brands
- Excellent and succinct communication skills (both verbal and written)
- Knowledge of who’s who in Australian media and have stellar relationships to match
- Passionate and proactive with incredible attention to detail
- Creative and curious in nature and ready to question everything
- A team player who loves learning from others and sharing your own experiences
- A master pitcher but never one who limits their thinking to just ‘traditional’ media relations
- A love of storytelling with writing skills to match
- Able to prioritise your workload, meet deadlines and ensure your client teams and campaigns never skip a beat
