We’re hiring and looking for two individuals to join the fast-paced, dynamic world of Alpaytac PR in Chicago.
We have an opportunity at a Director level (5-7 years’ experience) for a hybrid social/digital and public relations expert role. This person would support our Senior Director to help to lead all work we do for our clients in the owned and paid digital and social spaces – both directly, and by managing teams of account executives. Skills essential to success with this position include mastery of social media strategy, ability to lead and direct paid social and paid search programming, ability to direct community management work, and to guide integration efforts with marketing, advertising and public relations. Approximately 60 to 70 percent of this role will be in the digital/social space.
The other hat this individual will wear is more general public relations management. We need someone who can lead select, larger accounts of the agency with client-facing responsibilities, and direct the overall integrated public relations strategy and programming for clients. Solid understanding of media relations, including crafting of pitches and media releases, and the broader strategies around those, is essential, as is strong writing and editing skills. This position will also play an active role in the new business process.
With both hats, this person will need established leadership skills, mentoring acumen and the desire to grow a career by teaching and guiding.
Our second opportunity is for an Account Executive/Senior Account Executive, depending on experience, qualifications and fit. Within the range of these two titles, our staffers usually have somewhere between two and five years’ experience. The successful candidate will have demonstrated experience in consumer media relations, be able to build media lists, craft pitches and releases, perform outreach and secure placements. As an agency that believes in integration, this person will also have some knowledge of and experience with social media, from conceiving of smart executions to crafting content to managing communities. Depending on level, this position will have a certain degree of client-facing responsibility.
