Brilliant PR & Marketing Seeks Public Relations Press Coordinator 

Brilliant PR & Marketing is a 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 entry-level Public Relations Press Coordinator to support our fast-paced culture and rapid growth!

Our ideal Public Relations Press Coordinator is at the start of their career but has aspirations to progress quickly to more senior-level agency positions. Key responsibilities will be tracking the success and result your team generates through media monitoring, fueling our agency’s proprietary results reporting database, creating custom reports to merchandise results to clients, communicating those results directly to clients, and more. 

This role is the perfect opportunity to learn and refine elements of the public relations trade that are the foundation for every role within an agency setting. This includes refining your research skills, developing professional judgment, learning how to strategically communicate with clients and more. 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. We also recognize that the right candidate for this role may not be fresh out of school, but rather a seasoned professional from another field looking to take the first step toward a career pivot, or, a PR veteran who has been away from agency life for a while and looking to reenter.

  • Becoming a professional researcher and mastering the art of using Google, LinkedIn, and other search engines
  • Showing off your understanding of numbers and data by taking the charge on identifying insights and creating metrics reports
  • Learn how to be a pitch master!

Beyond these core responsibilities, you’ll have an opportunity to contribute to the bigger picture and reach toward more advanced tasks. Examples include contributing ideas for pitch angles, influencer opportunities, activations, and campaigns, drafting pitches, press materials and more.

Basic Requirements Include:

  • Bachelor’s degree in PR, marketing, journalism, communications or a related area of study
  • At least 6 months experience in consumer products PR, preferably in an agency setting (including internships or college work experiences). No internship experience? Check out our Press Coordinator in Training program!
