Brilliant PR & Marketing Seeks Public Relations Account Coordinator 

Leading agency serving consumer lifestyle brands with an emphasis on products for families including baby and maternity, toys and games, tech, and housewares and food, Brilliant PR & Marketing seeks an Account Coordinator to help support our fast-paced culture and rapid growth! 

We’re looking for a Public Relations Account Coordinator in the first year or two of their career but with aspirations to progress quickly to more senior-level agency positions. Key responsibilities include researching new media outlets and influencer channels, scouting industry trends, building targeted media and influencer lists, supporting social media creation and management efforts, overseeing and coordinating sampling for your clients, and merchandising your team’s success to client’s through daily and monthly reporting. 

You’ll work within the framework of a supportive 3-4 person team that will depend upon and guide you in executing the fundamental account tasks you’ll be leading while valuing your contributions to clients’ campaigns, strategies, events, and activations.

So what’s Brilliant all about? We are a unique PR agency in that our more than 20 team members each work remotely, with pockets of staff centralized in NYC, LA and Scottsdale, AZ, and even more scattered around the country. We give our people the resources and freedom to get their work done without having to sit in a cubicle or stuffy office, but team members are expected to be self-starting, super-motivated individuals who have project and time management down to an art. Although we are remote, team members are expected to be available and online during normal business hours.

 

Responsibilities Include:

  • Using Cision, Klear, Google, Twitter, Instagram, and more to build curated media and influencer target lists
  • Securing earned and paid coverage with media and influencers
  • Brainstorming and creating out of the box ideas to share with your clients
  • Monitoring the media and influencer landscapes for client coverage and sending “Hits As They Happen” emails in real-time to alert the client of new coverage
  • Tracking and coordinating product requests, samples inventory, and client sample budgets
  • Generating monthly client reports via Coverage Book and manage real-time published coverage tracker in AirTable 
  • Developing your writing skills by contributing to  press materials and pitches
  • Developing management skills by leading interns to success

 

Requirements Include:

  • 1+ Years of experience in consumer products PR, preferably in an agency setting, or extensive study of PR, journalism or a related field
  • Outstanding written and verbal communication, project management, and time management skills
  • Direct experience pitching consumer media
  • SUPER organized style and the ability to focus while working off-site
  • First-hand experience with social media creation and management including Facebook, Twitter, and Instagram (preferred)
  • Experience working with influencers, both paid and earned (preferred) 
  • Familiarity with Outlook, Cision, Google Docs, AirTable, video conferencing and Glip. Experience with Coverage Book, Meltwater/Klear, and video and photo editing software is a BIG plus
