PR Account Director - SLC

Company: WE Communications
Location: Lehi
Posted on: July 15, 2019

Job Description:

WE Codeword is looking for an Account Supervisor/Account Director to join our growing team. We are searching for a PR pro with 6+ years of experience who can handle clients and wants to work with exec, peer, and junior staff as equals. The ideal candidate will lead by example and help to teach our junior staff the trade. You will be responsible for managing an account team, providing guidance and support for employees' career growth. You will run accounts while crafting and implementing PR strategies that generate results for our clients. You'll contribute to our new business initiatives, be responsible for day-to-day client communications, and give senior counsel to clients on media strategy and media relations.We are searching for someone with exceptional writing skills. We need a go-getter with fantastic attention to detail, and an even better attitude. A genuine interest in the tech industry is also a must. What we need:

  • A writer. We only hire strong writers. If you are articulate and can express yourself intelligently, we want you. If you can explain something complex to a journalist in three sentences or less, we want you.
  • A person who knows people, and how to engage those people. Specifically, you know the media, and they know you. You know entrepreneurs. You live for the startup world. And you love it.
  • An idea person / An execution person. Creative enough to think big, humble and hard-working enough to execute WELL on a tactical level.
  • A person who has a passion for technology. You have solid experience in tech + B2B. Consumer lifestyle experience is a plus!
  • An entrepreneur. Entrepreneurs know there is no "off" switch, so we need people that can always be "on." We don't punch a clock here, but do (try to) track the hours we're spending on an account – and we manage our time ruthlessly because we have to.
  • Experience. We need someone that has done this before. A few times. You aren't an executive (yet), but you know how to run a PR program, and you've been around long enough to know the press – and more important, they know you.
  • A manager. We need someone that can manage up and down, letting nothing slip through the cracks. This means you manage the team, but you keep those above you in the loop on important information.
  • A problem solver. We need someone that asks the right questions, finds the answers out themselves, and then presents the problem with some recommended solutions.Desired skills and experience:
    • 6+ years of experience in PR agencies, in-house or corporate communications (at least one of those years in an agency).
    • Strong, established business and trade press and analyst relationships.
    • Team-oriented attitude and willingness to pitch in wherever needed.
    • Desire to keep learning and advance within the agency.
    • Creativity and integrity, we are a PR agency, after all.
    • Ability to be strategic and work well under pressure.
    • Motivated, enthusiastic self-starter able to complete tasks with minimal supervision, which also means you're both ambitious and flexible.
    • Strong communications skills (both verbal and written).
    • Startup experience is a plus or you're just super comfortable with a fast-paced, ambiguous environment, plus you've never met a Google app or doc you don't know how to use.
    • A bachelor's degree or relevant experience.About us:WE Codeword is a hybrid agency that combines content, media relations and thoughtful creativity to build effective communications programs. Our clients trust us to launch their startups, run multi-channel campaigns, grow their user bases, and lead comprehensive PR and marketing initiatives.
