Allison+Partners is seeking a Senior Account Executive to join our team in the Scottsdale office. You will work closely with account leads on select pieces of business with guidance from senior staff and support from junior colleagues. Experience working with consumer, sports and healthcare is preferred. We are also seeking someone with media relations experience with high-level business, trade and/or consumer media and inﬂuencers. Our ideal candidate is an ambitious and creative individual who has a passion for public relations!
As the right-hand to an AM or Director, SAEs begin to straddle both the account work (media relations, pitch development and conference work) and the strategic elements (plan development, client counsel, etc.) A proven track record with media is a must, as clients should view an SAE as the go-to when it comes to reporter beats and interests as well as trendspotting and newsjacking. SAEs, in turn, should also be capable of providing this know how to junior staff, guiding them through pitch challenges and assisting with their professional development.
We encourage our SAEs to begin to hone in on their interest areas, proactively looking for opportunities across the agency to refine their skills and fuel their passions. This includes taking time to network outside of the office, attend conferences/events and meet with reporters and influencers to strengthen relationships.
Qualifications include: • BA or BS in related ﬁeld required • Requires 4+ years of public relations, marketing or related experience • Works well under pressure • Works independently • Strategic thinker • Excellent writer in need of minimal editing • Strong media relations skills and proved industry relationships • Team builder and leader
About the Company: The world today is noisy + wild. To stand out, you have to part ways with tradition. Tilt your perspective. Try something new. The most reckless thing you can do is play it safe. We are a new kind of global agency. Our offices are filled with academics, amateur philosophers, data geeks, artists and never-say-die entrepreneurs. We’re focused on solving tough challenges for brand leaders who want to shake up the world. We don’t lean simply on traditional research. We build insight through data and anthropology, strategic opportunities through a deep and nuanced understanding of culture, and content through an obsession with authenticity. We are hundreds of change makers who aren’t afraid to turn ideas upside down and ask, “Is that all you’ve got?” Our clients? Their view of the world is like ours. We push them as we push ourselves to get comfortable with being uncomfortable—because unless you’re a little uneasy, it’s probably not worth doing. Let your brand up for air. Take the deepest breath. Find purpose. To us, being one global team is less about being in more places than ever before and more about collaborating across multiple oceans, time zones and languages. It’s about integration, not alienation. Maybe that’s why talent comes to Allison+Partners, to push boundaries, but stays because they have the space to tinker, grow and play. To make originality the primary driver of everything they do. No matter where you want to go or who you want to be, relevance, reinvention, and invention all start with challenging convention.
