PR Account Manager

  • Auckland

We are a busy Parnell PR and content agency with national and global clients who are leaders in their field. We are affiliates of the award winning BCW.

You will understand how to write, what's happening in the current media environment, how to develop engaging rich content and help clients achieve their goals. You are unflappable and calm.

We have fun. No day is the same. Join the agency that brought the world the #4dayweek initiative.

Our work includes reputation management, building authority, managing issues and crisis, building rich content for niche business categories including video, podcasts and info-graphics and other pillar content strategies. Know what inbound marketing is? Not afraid to chat with media daily?
With a range of local and international blue chip corporate and consumer clients, your days promise to be filled with a variety of tasks and the opportunity to learn about a diverse range of industries.

To be our ideal Account Manager, you will be able to demonstrate a natural flair for communication and relationship management, and will have already proven your success in the PR / content marketing industry. You are a strategic thinker and quick on your feet. You know a good story when you see it and know how to package it up to present to relevant media. You have led your clients through successful projects from beginning to end, and established good media and client relationships. If a crisis hits, you are able to prioritise your work and advise your client accordingly.

In this role, you will take the lead on your own selection of clients (a mix of business-to-business and business-to-consumer). You are comfortable writing proposals and PR plans that you know your clients will thank you for, and are able to present, lead and generate results, while managing client budgets. Corporate, retail and property experience will be an advantage.

To get an understanding of the work we do, have a look at our websites:

We are a highly efficient relationship and results focused team that values collaboration and teamwork. You get out what you put in and against industry trends we retain staff and clients, with several of our senior members having been with the team for several years and several clients the same. Relationships are key in this business, so if you are a genuine person who is eager to build existing and foster new relationships that are with you for the long haul, then we want to hear from you.

If you are who we are looking for and we are who you are looking for, please send us your CV and a cover letter.

Who's it for: Got A Trade by Ogilvy NZ

Why we like it: Got A Trade has gone down a clever route with its latest campaign by disguising the ad as a music video. Featuring New Zealand and Australian rock royalty – the offspring of Neil Finn and Jimmy Barnes – the highlight is the moving set pieces made by the real-life apprentices and trainees. A fun, inventive and relatable spot. 

Who's it for: The Warehouse by DDB New Zealand

Why we like it: The Warehouse gets the right recipe with its campaign for Kiwi Scrabble – you can’t go wrong with much-loved Kiwi celebrities chef/author Jo Seagar and boxer David Tua. In the spot Seagar gives it her all, igniting the age-old debate over who is the rightful owner of the pavlova – New Zealand or Australia. It’s funny and fresh and will get you craving a piece of pav. 

Who's it for: Air New Zealand 

Why we like it: Babies are in the news at the moment (looking at you Meghan and Harry) and while Air New Zealand’s latest campaign predates the Royal announcement, who can go past cute, smiley cherubs. While most of the babes are happy in the Skycouch, it’s nice to see a few tears which are definitely a reality for parents out there.
