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 Manager at Brilliant PR & Marketing, you have at least five years of direct experience in public relations with an emphasis on media relations. You will be directly responsible for a group of approximately five accounts, 2-3 of which will be larger clients requiring strategic counsel and program development, with 2-3 accounts being smaller in nature, focused primarily on success with media and influencers.
In this role, you are the primary project manager for your teams, ensuring that all tasks, assignments and needs are completed in a timely, high-quality manner. This will require you to be forward-looking, ensuring that nearterm deadlines are met in service of long-term goals. As just one example, you are the person who needs to remember in the spring that it’s time to prepare for long-lead holiday gift guide pitching. Beyond pitching, you will be responsible for overseeing the planning and implementation of tactics and activations that could range from surveys and contests to live media events, video production and creative activations.
In the arena of media/influencer relations, you lead the development of annual, seasonal and tactical outreach strategies including contact lists. In addition to personally executing a significant share of media/influencer outreach efforts, you are responsible for coordinating the effective use of shared media/influencer relations services at the agency on behalf of your clients. You will be expected to manage your outreach via our internal media outreach and contact management platform. Advanced skill in pitch and press release writing, copy development and general excellence in written communications is a must.
On an ongoing basis for your larger clients, and from time-to-time for your smaller clients, you will need to provide a voice of strategic counsel, industry and competitive perspective. This will range from being a thoughtful and savvy partner in response to questions that may arise during weekly status calls, and also includes assisting with the development of strategic plans and creative programming concepts with the support and direction of your Account Director. Refined skill in the translation of strategies, objectives, tactics and plans into client presentations via Powerpoint and other presentation tools is essential. An understanding of your clients’ bottom-line business goals and objectives is a must.
Your leadership and management are also essential to the success of your junior staff, which could include an Account Executive and/or Account Coordinator. It will be your role to decide how to properly delegate all of the team’s work between yourself and junior staff. You will also need to ensure that junior teammates are successful in monitoring for coverage and reporting the results of our work to clients through standard monthly reporting.
Because we are a remote agency, your ability to remain focused and properly manage your time on your own, while working from home, is critical. This will also require you to heavily utilize technology such as Google Docs, video conferencing and Glip .
