The group recently hosted a networking event in collaboration with Canva – the first face-to-face industry networking event in the 16 months since the COVID-19 pandemic began.
NSW Young Guns, co-chair, Rachel King, said: “The PRIA NSW Young Guns is a team of ambitious young professionals, who are committed to creating meaningful development opportunities for new and emerging PR practitioners.
“We are calling for expressions of interest from NSW-based communications and PR students, new graduates and young professionals who are keen to help shape the future of our industry, while also building their own resume.”

“It’s an exciting time as we look for bright, new talent to join our team and play a role in elevating our offering over the coming months.”
