Due to recent client wins we are now looking for an experienced PR specialist to join our close knit communications team on either a part-time contract or freelance basis for approx 15 hours a week.

Mahlab is a content and communications agency that works with some of the world’s most dynamic brands. We’re a team of writers, journalists, strategists, designers, social media experts, and PR folk famous for content and communications programs.

Due to recent client wins we are now looking for an experienced PR specialist to join our close knit communications team on either a part-time contract or freelance basis for approx 15 hours a week.

This role can be worked remotely from anywhere within Australia or may be of interest to someone who is keen to be part of our Balmain based team once lockdown has lifted.

 

The day to day

The core focus of the PR specialist is to deliver outstanding earned media results for our clients. You will deeply understand our clients, their stories and the communications strategy that has been developed for them. 

You are the media relations engine of the team. You set the media relations strategy for the account and you lead in its execution. You have top tier journalists on speed-dial and love selling stories to them. Through your day-to-day interaction with key media contacts, you’ve got your finger on the pulse of media moves, interests and opportunities. 

You will advise the Mahlab team, and clients, on the best approach to generate media coverage and what can be achieved within a set scope. You will mentor more junior members of the team, helping them craft media pitches, lists and releases. 

You will take part in client meetings and pitches, bringing your superior media relations knowledge to these conversations. 

 

The ideal person

Will ideally have 5+ years experience in communications and be degree qualified. You will possess excellent media relationships and have strong written and verbal communication skills.  You will have a demonstrated track record of developing media plans, and achieving outstanding media results.  Experience in B2B tech and financial services would be a distinct advantage.

 

Why it’s pretty good here

  • We’re close to public transport links.
  • We’re slap bang in the middle of Balmain’s coffee strip.
  • We develop talent in a nurturing and supportive environment.
  • A fun and flexible office culture with WFH available – up to 50% of hours. (when not in lockdown)
