We’re looking to add to our quickly-growing team with a self-motivated and deadline-oriented Account Executive who will be instrumental in supporting our PR teams through day-to-day account assignments that may include American Express, Facebook, Le Méridien, Tribute Portfolio and more. This person ideally has great follow up and closure, excellent writing skills, media pitching expertise and stellar people skills.
-What we're looking for-
Responsibilities for the Account Executive will include general account support, research, trend spotting, project management, media list and strategy development, materials creation and press outreach. In some cases, an Account Executive serves as a day-to-day client contact and supports the teams’ influencer/social media efforts as needed. An Account Executive also serves a peer resource to assistant account executives, PR coordinators, apprentices and interns.
The ideal candidate has 2-3 years-experience in PR, marketing communications or media as well as have a college degree. He/she will be an entrepreneurial-minded, deadline-oriented PR generalist with a strong work ethic, strong writing and oral communications skills and some media outreach experience. Candidates should demonstrate resourcefulness, a strong sense of teamwork, ability to execute programs and a desire to learn and be a part of helping us grow. Because of the diversity of clients that the agency represents, the ideal candidate must be able to seamlessly transition (and be successful) supporting and delivering success across a wide range of assignments and client categories – including travel, financial services, lifestyle, consumer tech, B2B, fashion and beverage.
Relevant agency experience working on consumer-facing brands, a track record of secured media placements and experience mentoring junior team members.
We’ll provide you a pretty sweet desk space with a thunderbolt display in our NYC office along with full access to our stocked pantry & fridge and eventually some level of control of our Sonos (when we trust you). We also offer a generous benefit package with the normals (health/dental/vision). We have a "take what you need" vacation policy, monthly team outings and cellular data reimbursement.
