Salary Range: DOE

Brilliant is much different from traditional consumer product agencies. Rather than “staying the course”, we thrive on pushing the bar . We are high energy, fast-paced and a perfect case study in balanced chaos. Your plate will be full. Your ability to prioritize and juggle will be challenged. Your opinion will be sought. But at the end of the day, you will move the needle for your client and have a tremendous sense of accomplishment.

Are you sweating yet? No? Maybe just a little? Then keep reading….we want to know you!

As an Account Coordinator at Brilliant PR & Marketing, the leading agency marketing to moms, you have at least one year public relations experience working with consumer products. We’re looking for an AC who is passionate about PR, social media and influencer relations.

You will work with your account team to assist with media and influencer relations, social media execution, reporting and analytics, and sample requests, among other tasks and activations.

Your outstanding writing and organization skills will empower you to craft press materials such as fact sheets, pitches and press releases, and your superior research and organization skills will shine through while developing media/influencer lists, identifying new contacts, monitoring trends, and reporting on client coverage.

You will be asked for creative input in strategic planning opportunities. An understanding of your clients’ bottom-line business goals and objectives is a must.
