PR Account Executive - Compass Studio


Come join us in our mission as Compass Studio’s PR Account Executive and help us make our portfolio of world-bettering brands, better. In exchange for your keen passion and interest in the Australian media, we’ll give you a flexible and nimble work environment, real work-life balance, a solid 6 and 12-month career development plan, mental health RDO’s, summer hours, paid birthday leave and ability to give back via chosen charity-work days and pro-bono projects. We’re a growing agency, with a big heart and this is a unique opportunity to fast-track your career in the impact-led space.

So what are we looking for?

You have been in-market for at least one year, and are ready to take the next step in your PR and Communications career – perhaps to something with more autonomy, faster career progression and with brands that you love and that are making an impact in the world.

You are a creative self-starter who is passionate about communications and the fast-evolving Australian media landscape and who thrives in a fast-paced and bustling agency environment. Ideally, you have agency experience, but if you don’t, you love the idea of wearing many hats and working on multiple projects. You are comfortable writing, pitching and securing media and you have started to develop a small but solid contact network with media.

You have an exceptional eye for detail, can write a killer pitch email and a press release, and speak fluent influencer management. Basically, you know how to secure coverage for your clients and you have a can-do, solutions-focussed approach to making this happen.

This role would suit someone looking to step up from a Coordinator role, or even a current PR Executive looking for deeper career experience and to gain invaluable experience working with impact-led brands right across Australia and abroad. We’d love to see evidence of your passion and skills so please include real-life examples of any earned media placements that you’ve achieved or the campaign you are most proud of in your cover letter.

In return, we offer a nimble and flexible working set-up; working from our brand new Sydney CBD co-working space, The Commons, as well as remotely.

This role presents an incredible opportunity to work directly with our PR team in an environment that is both nurturing and autonomous.

Sounds like a gig worth getting excited about? We agree and we’re pumped to welcome our next PR superstar. Drop into our inbox today.
