About the job SAE, Fashion/Beauty/Wellness
NYC Public Relations Agency seeks a Senior Account Executive (SAE) to work closely with clients in the beauty, health and wellness space. The candidate will manage business, trade and/or consumer media and inﬂuencer contacts. You will act as the account lead on smaller pieces of business and/or to lead individual portions of larger pieces of business.
SAEs are at the heart of a successful account. Part media relations expert, part strategic thinker and part client hand-holder. SAEs are responsible for assisting with all aspects of an account.
SAEs straddle both the account work (media relations, pitch development and conference work) and the strategic elements (plan development, client counsel, etc.) A successful and proven track record with media is a must, as clients should view an SAE as the go-to when it comes to reporter beats and interests as well as trendspotting and newsjacking. SAEs, in turn, should also be capable of providing this know-how to junior staff, guiding them through pitch challenges and assisting with their professional development.
You should have a strong interest in media, storytelling, and research. You should be a creative thinker that has a track record of turning your original ideas into media successes. Strong writing and communication skills are a must. As part of our media relations team, youll need to pivot quickly and juggle multiple tasks throughout the day. If you thrive under pressure, possess strong initiative and love to be challenged, this is a great opportunity for you.
