Account Executive / Account Manager | PR

  • Auckland Central

A great opportunity to grow your PR career within the tech and B2B space PLUS develop an interest in content creation.

This is a unique hybrid role of junior PR Publicist (AE, Senior AE or AM level) and content creator, where you'll develop skills in filming and editing (photography and video). You don't need to know video production already, but you do need to have an interest and aptitude to learn quickly.

Ideally, you'll already have some PR experience, but grads will also be considered. A relevant comms qualification is preferred.

Your PR day-to-day will involve writing press releases (though not a lot); proactive media outreach; product service launches; thought leadership; social media; and an element of reporting. Media relations will be around 60% of the role. Some copywriting will be required (short case studies, press releases, opinion pieces).

This agency specialises in working with tech and B2B clients (consumer and corporate), with some well-known and exciting clients. You don't have to be a tech-head, but you do have to be able to appreciate this type of client.

Ideal qualities for the role: confident; articulate; relationship builder; likes an intellectual challenge; curious about clients/work/life; able to contribute rather than take.
You must have an extremely high level of written and spoken English, using clear business language. You must be fluent and persuasive.

This is a small, but growing PR agency based in the heart of the Auckland CBD. The office is colourful, friendly, peaceful and quiet.

You'll be reporting directly to the Director and there will be ample opportunity for mentoring and career progression.

Only shortlisted candidates will be contacted. Preference will be given to applicants entitled to work in (and currently residing in) NZ.

Who's it for: ASB by With Collective and Curious Films

Why we like it: The True Rewarden sheriff is back – and she’s here to teach us a lesson at the True Rewarden Academy training camp. The spot is simple and effective, with the sheriff explaining what True Rewards can be used for. We like Rachel House as the ‘True Rewarden’ as she brings great humour to the ad and hope ASB continues using the sheriff for further campaigns. 

Who's it for: LifeDirect by Trade Me by Y&R and Flying Fish

Why we like it: We all know unfortunate events happen to everyone at some time and we should be prepared. While most of us probably won’t end up in a shark's mouth, this is the premise of the hilarious new spot from LifeDirect by TradeMe. While the Jaws-esque ad is a change from Simon the Sloth (RIP), it's nice to see a bit of humour and fun injected into what can be a sometimes boring (but necessary) industry. 

Who's it for: Phloe from Douglas Pharmaceuticals by YoungShand and Reel Factory 

Why we like it: We can't go past ads that feature cute dogs and this one is no exception. Using a parade of misbehaving pooches to bring up the issue of bowel health is a clever move from Phloe. It's not clinical or scary and will ensure the audience is watching. Will be interesting to see how this campaign develops further or if another direction is taken.
