PR Account Manager | Compass Studio | Sydney/remote

Come join us in our mission as Compass Studio’s next PR Account Manager and help us make our portfolio of world-bettering brands, better. In exchange for your expertise, established media contacts and in-depth knowledge of the Australian media landscape, 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 small agency, with a big heart and this is a unique opportunity to fast-track your career and professional skill-set and work with brands that you’re actually passionate about.

So what are we looking for?

You have been in-market at least 4 years 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. And we’re almost certain that you want more of that thing called work-life balance. We hear you. And more so, we make it happen.

You are highly comfortable with clients and thrive in a position that allows you to have autonomy with your clients; with everything from strategy to implementation, results and relationship. You’re a can-do kinda human and your verbal, email and zoom comms are exceptional.

You’re at your best in a fast-paced and bustling environment and love the opportunity that wearing many hats presents. Ideally, you have agency experience, but if you don’t, you can show examples of working multiple projects or campaigns at one time. You are extremely comfortable writing, pitching and securing media and your media contacts are solid.

You think outside the box, and are well-versed in informing strategy and suggesting ideas to elevate your clients and media touch-points. 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 meet and exceed KPI’s by securing great coverage for your clients, and you have a can-do, solutions-focussed approach to making this happen.

This role would suit a Senior Account Exec looking to make a big jump up, or a current Account Manager who is seeking deeper career experience and more purpose in their workday by working with some of the best 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’re offering a 5 day per week permanent role with one day from our North Sydney based co-working space and the rest remote, with serious potential for career growth working amongst an awesome portfolio of brands and a team of high achievers in a young, nimble, BCorp accredited agency.

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