We have an opening in our Dallas office and would love to expand our search beyond the immediate PR realm. I am hoping you may know someone who is interested in strategic communications consulting (managing the communications around crises, M&A, IR, Shareholder Activism, Inversions, Change Management, etc., not product launch and headset type of PR) so you can pass this on.
We are interested in speaking to candidates at all levels, but have an immediate need to fill an Account Director position. A few points on what we are looking for are below, the job description is attached and a link to our website is included for reference and for sharing.
I would love to have a conversation / coffee with anyone who is curious to see if this is a potential fit for them (and for us).
Thanks so much for your help in passing this on and please feel free to share my information with anyone who comes to mind.
Who we are:
- We are a leading, privately held strategic communications firm.
- We have 24 offices around the world in 14 countries.
- We have on staff former reporters, bankers, IR leads, lawyers, campaign managers, lobbyists, and the occasional communications person. In handling the most critical issues, we need people who have experience on the legal, financial and political sides, so not having a pure communications background is actually a plus.
What we do:
- We advise our clients on their most pressing issues. Some call it “bone in the throat PR” and others just know to call us when something (good and not so good) is about to, or has happened.
- We lead the world in M&A transaction support. We regularly sit alongside the bankers and the lawyers and we shape the communications working with media and managing stakeholders including policy makers, labor unions, investors, etc.
Things to keep in mind:
- We are looking for someone who has an interest in business and who gets charged up over the issues we handle. Therefore, an active interest in business (but not a business degree) is a must.
- Having an opinion and being comfortable giving advice and telling people when they are going down a bad path is a part of the job.
- We work long hours and that includes weekends occasionally. We build teams so people aren’t crushed but sometimes there are demanding projects, but those we hire thrive in those situations.
- We work in an open office environment. No one, at any level, has an office. We are highly collaborative and it can get noisy and that is not the best fit for many people.
- We have incredible health and vacation benefits.
