Team Akrete is hiring!
Position: Media Relations Account Manager
Status: FT, PT or Contract
Required: 3-10 years B2B PR experience, proven media outreach track record
Do you have both the media pitching and account management “genes”? If you also have earned 3-10 years’ agency or corporate PR experience, and are seeking a flexible professional situation as part of a high performance B2B PR and content creation team – we’d love to talk to you.
Who is Team Akrete?
Akrete Comms is a non-traditional boutique PR and content creation team that operates from Evanston, Illinois. Akrete was founded two years ago and is growing rapidly, with clients including Jones Lang LaSalle, KeyBank and others.
What Matters to Us?
On Team Akrete, high quality content and stunning media relations results matter more than where the work gets done, or what time of day it happens. We may work at 2:00 a.m. or in airports sometimes, but generally it’s because we made time for after school sports, artistic events or time with friends and family earlier in the day.
Our team of contractors, employees and interns puts clients and results first, and we share a commitment to excellence in the context of work/life balance. We are seeking an account manager to become a core member of Team Akrete, a player/coach media strategist, media outreach leader and hands-on content creator.
What’s the compensation and schedule?
Compensation and schedule can be tailored for the right person who is a good fit for our clients and business model, with at least 25 hours per week and 2-3 days with some hours in the office a minimum requirement, and a full-time team member welcome.
Who are we looking for?
Members of Team Akrete share a passion for achieving major media and trade journal media placement results and the proven ability to do so, strong writing skills, superior organization, and an unwavering dedication to client service. Candidates should offer some combination of social media, commercial real estate, technology and banking experience and expertise as well.
How do I apply?
