Lioness is hiring an Account Manager


Account manager, media relations/PR specialist Lioness is a communications firm with a difference: we take a journalistic approach to placing our clients’ stories in the media. We are seeking a media relations specialist with experience in journalism who will collaborate with us to achieve client media coverage, come up with creative approaches to contribute to the success of our client campaigns, and work on writing projects, including op-eds and articles. Strong relationships with a variety of journalists and editors at media outlets covering transportation, travel, climate change and/or childcare is a must-have for this position, along with the know-how to build new relationships with journalists on behalf of clients, and strong writing and fact-checking skills. Our perfect candidate will be great at coming up with thoughtful and creative ideas for how to pitch coverage. They’ll have a passion for the news cycle and great intuition about creating narratives that fit with topics that are in the zeitgeist. They’ll have relationships with a variety of media outlets with whom they’ve previously placed media for clients. They’ll also be a strong writer who isn’t afraid to work on multiple projects from the mundane (press releases and media lists) to the exciting (culture changing policy), all in one day. Self-motivated and able to work without micromanagement is a must. If you are interested in helping companies doing things to make the world a better place, whether that’s through better childcare, micro-mobility, preventing gender-based violence, reducing our carbon footprint or using technology to make our cities better places to live, this will be work you’ll love. At Lioness, we meet the challenge of placing news stories in a fast-paced and competitive media environment with optimism and curiosity. If this sounds like you, we’d love to have you join us. This is a contract position - if we work well together we are definitely interested in making you a full-time employee. For the application, please send us links to samples of your published writing, 5 examples of press you have achieved for your clients, and a line or two about how that press came about. Please also include a cover letter and resume, sending all of the above to amber@lioness.co and ariella@lioness.co.
