Overview

This role provides support across public relations teams including administrative support to the Senior Vice President. The ideal candidate should have a BA/BS degree and must be a confident communicator with the level of maturity, discretion, and presence necessary to work with all levels of executives and personality types. Must be particularly well-organized, detailed-oriented, flexible, able to work independently and within a team, and enjoy the administrative challenges of supporting a busy office. Must respond expeditiously to diverse assignments, take responsibility for projects from beginning to end, and consistently operate with a sense of urgency without losing sight of the details. The ability to interact with staff, clientele, and all external contacts—in a fast-paced environment, sometimes under pressure, remaining flexible, proactive, resourceful and efficient, with a high level of professionalism and confidentiality—is crucial to this role. It is also recommended that candidates hold a keen interest in the public relations industry. The successful candidate will be granted exceptional exposure to all aspects of company business, projects, and initiatives. Although this position reports to the Senior Vice President, some responsibilities of the role will be supervised directly by the public relations team Account Coordinators, fostering a positive, learning environment.
