  • Media Relationships and Pitching to Audiences- Relationships with key journalists representing client market sectors are established and maintained to maximise opportunities for client coverage.
  • Client Relationships- Solid relationships are established with primary members of the client team by understanding their needs and implanting solutions.
  • Copywriting- Proficiency in the primary forms of PR copywriting including press releases, case studies, articles and letter writing is regularly demonstrated for both B2B and Consumer audiences.
  • Digital Media- Demonstrate a strong understanding of the digital media landscape. Utilise digital media tools for superior client service.
  • Reporting- Timely, quality-driven client reporting and information sharing is continually achieved.
  • Knowledge Building- A current and comprehensive understanding of the media, current affairs, client organisations, their market sectors and the agency business proposition is maintained.
  • Administration & Information Management- Client and company administration is efficiently managed, new business pitches are fully supported and account information is stored in current, logical and accessible systems enabling ease and speed of access by all team members.
  • Account Profitability- Account profitability is maintained through appropriate personal service levels, time analysis and direct cost recovery.
  • Team Player- A can-do attitude, flexibility and willingness to contribute are consistently demonstrated.

We’re looking for the brilliant, the unconventional and the relentless. If that’s you, we may have something to talk about.
