In Boston, we need a

Manager, Public Relations

Allen & Gerritsen is seeking a rising public relations star with 2-3 years of professional experience focused on consumer/lifestyle PR to join its Boston office as a Manager, Public Relations. The Manager will be an integral member of a collaborative, award-winning public relations and social media practice that exists within a top independent, full-service advertising agency. This is a unique opportunity to gain hands-on and meaningful experience at an established agency, develop integrated campaigns for national brands and play a leading role with Boston-based clients. This role will work closely with PR team members as well as departments cross-discipline in both Boston and Philadelphia.

We want to hear from you if:

  • You’ve worked in agency land for a few years, with a focus on consumer brands (CPG, health and wellness, home and lifestyle). You’re eager for a new challenge with a lot of running room to grow your career and contribute to a growing department and agency.
  • You have solid media relationships with national consumer, health and lifestyle reporters and can share examples with us of pitches that you’ve converted from smart ideas to secured placements.   
  • You have experience developing influencer campaigns (micro to celebrity), including identification, contracting, content collaboration and measurement and reporting.
  • You have experience managing social media and digital projects, including community management, content development, affiliate programs and measurement and reporting.
  • You’re open to not being a specialist; while this role will be concentrated in consumer PR, you’ll relish the ability to apply your creativity to a range of accounts, tasks and industries, including B2B, healthcare, tourism, clean energy/sustainability and civil rights.
  • You have experience managing projects from start to finish, and you instill confidence in your colleagues that you’ll get the job done. 
  • You love to consume the news and stay up-to-date with current trends, especially within your clients’ industries.
  • You’re a self-starter and have experience acting autonomously, but you’re still eager to learn from your broader team.
  • You’re a “glass half full” person who views challenges as great opportunities to grow and move the needle for your clients.  

Day-to-day responsibilities will include:

  • Serve as a client contact/relationship manager; manage day-to-day account activities with the support of the broader PR team
  • Actively engage in media relations efforts and build relationships with reporters in key client industries
  • Work with the broader PR team to brainstorm, develop and implement campaign strategies and tactics
  • Oversee account management and client reporting
  • Participate in the new business process
  • Manage interns and associates on account work
  • Other qualifications we like:
    • Strong writing skills; writing samples, a writing test and coverage portfolio will be required
    • At least 2-3 years of industry experience, agency preferred
    • Proven media relations acumen
    • Impeccable attention to detail
    • Working knowledge of PR and influencer tools including Critical Mention and Muck Rack
    • Experience working at the intersection of PR and content creation
    • Self-motivated disposition
    • Outgoing personality
