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.

YOU
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.

THEM
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.

TVC OF THE WEEK

Who's it for:  ASB by True

Why we like it: Clever Kash is back in the latest advert by ASB, but instead of telling us how to save money, he's focused on teaching kids how to save lives. First aid is an important skill for everyone, and empowering children to be able to make critical decisions when a loved one is hurt or unwell is nothing but a good thing. 

Who's it for: White Ribbon by in-house team and Ocean Design and Lot23

Why we like it: No one can deny that New Zealand has a serious problem with violence, particularly violence towards women. It's heartening to see a bunch of White Ribbon ambassadors open up the conversation and invite all men – regardless of whether they've ever been violent or not – to stand up against the culture of violence in this country.

Who's it for: Tower Insurance by Barnes, Catmur & Friends Dentsu

Why we like it: Insurance ads tend to follow a similar pattern, but this one injects a touch of humour to make it memorable. We all know accidents are a huge disruption to a well-curated daily routine, but Tower has the solution.
