Public Relations Account Executive

Company: Sunshine Sachs
Location: Austin
Posted on: November 12, 2019

Job Description:

We're proud to represent clients that align with our beliefs and work to transform our society for the better. Our responsibility is telling our client's story, not touting our own. We like to believe that we are creative storytellers who work to reach audiences and solve communication challenges regardless of the medium. Sunshiners are in it for the meaningful moments. Giving back and social good is at the crux of who we are and what continues to grow within us - from quarterly volunteer days to teaching and mentoring. We are genuinely invested in your growth. Sunshine University - ask us about it!
Why should you join us?Every Sunshiner has a say, from brainstorming pitch ideas to leading client relationships, from participating to business development, from welcome emails to all-staff presentations - your voice matters to us. We encourage curiosity, especially when it's joined with initiative! Our clients are important (of course they are!), but more important are our team members.
So, what are we looking for?We have an immediate opening for an Account Executive in our Austin Office. What does this mean? You've been doing this for a bit (about 3 years or so) and are looking for your next challenge and opportunity. This is a role for someone who has an interest in dabbling in multiple industries. You have all this energy, these great contacts and are ready to target it to something else, but aren't sure what, we'll help you figure that out as you DO! You've been on the same account for a bit now and really want to try your hand at something else - this is your chance! We are major proponents of the generalist mentality, with an entrepreneurial spirit - you can speak on anything and are a Jack/Jane/Juan/Julia of all trades! Responsibilities Include:

  • Assisting in developing and executing comprehensive communications strategies.
  • Conducting regular and thorough research on various topics, flagging relevant news updates for teams/clients.
  • Drafting, editing and proofreading materials including press releases, blog content, pitches, fact sheets, FAQs, briefing notes, and client correspondence.
  • Conducting client media monitoring and developing media coverage/placement and analysis reports.
  • Assisting in planning and executing media-specific events including influencer events and press conferences. Support would include developing invite lists, managing RSVPs, wrangling media on-site, drafting and distributing post-event releases, etc.
  • Scheduling and providing logistical support for client meetings.
  • Supporting senior managers on achieving deliverables for a full roster of clients (average of 4 - 6).
  • Creating and maintaining media contact lists to build relationships with new publications and media contacts.
  • Participating in new business meetings, creating proposals as needed.
  • Regularly bringing new opportunities for clients - media meetings, key introductions, etc.
  • Working with senior management to respond to client requests and ensure requests are taken care of in an efficient manner.
  • Administrative support of accounts including developing agendas, meeting recaps, activity reports, client status reports, budget trackers, and updating press kits. You should apply if:
    • You have 3+ years of experience in communications, public relations, integrated media relations, etc.
    • You are eager and open to learning all aspects of integrated communications (media relations, social media, creative, brand integration, talent integration).
    • You are a strong writer - persuasive, concise, creative, and quick! (Also, must support the oxford comma.).
    • You have a growing list of relationships with media across a variety of verticals and know how to leverage those relationships to secure impactful media opportunities.
    • You are a strategic thinker, bring new ideas to the table, and love a good brainstorm.
    • You have strong decision-making abilities and accountability; this is an important role, own it!
    • You have an innate curiosity and an entrepreneurial spirit---have a suggestion on making something better? We encourage you to do it!
    • You are incredibly organized, detailoriented (see what I did there?), and able to excel at managing multiple projects simultaneously.
    • You're willing to work select evenings/weekends and travel when necessary - our clients often need us to GO, GO, GO!
    • You enjoy overdelivering rather than meeting expectations and take genuine pride in being part of something good.
    • You make friends wherever you go. I mean, your co-workers are basically your roommates---don't be uncool Basic PerksSunshine Sachs offers medical, dental, and vision plans, 401(k), annual merit-based bonuses, PTO and commuter benefits. We arrange additional perks as well. From Summer Fridays and celebrations and events, to quarterly flex days and company-organized volunteer opportunities, we're proud of the culture we've created across the company. We are an equal opportunity employer and all qualified applicants will receive consideration for employment without regard to race, color, religion, sex, national origin, disability status, protected veteran status, or any other characteristic protected by law.
