It’s not enough to know how to tell a good story. Here, you’ll help create them.
Fast Horse, an award-winning, integrated creative agency, is hiring a Senior Media Relations Strategist to join our growing team. Our ideal candidate will have at least four years of experience working in media relations and a proven history of developing and executing successful publicity campaigns on a local and national level. If you get as excited about seeing coverage in the Altoona Mirror as you do in PEOPLE Magazine – keep reading.
We’re searching for someone with the tenacity to drive day-to-day media relations initiatives, including developing campaigns, writing media materials, identifying media targets, conducting media outreach and leading coverage analysis. We partner with some of the world’s best-known companies like Coca-Cola, Heineken and General Mills on some of their most visible brand campaigns but are just as passionate about the niche projects we bring to life for our B2B clients. Celebrity campaigns, experiential activations, influencer integrations, thought leadership; it’s all on the table as you lock arms with an integrated team that puts ideas ahead of egos.
This job is best suited for someone who has worked at an agency or in-house driving media coverage for companies, brands, executives – or better yet – all three. Keeping up with the changing media landscape and pop culture trends across industries is a must, as is forming relationships with key reporters across a variety of verticals. We’re looking for candidates who are obsessed with securing results, and creatively bobbing and weaving throughout a campaign to ensure coverage. If you’ve ever repeatedly refreshed a browser until the page was updated with campaign coverage, you’re in good company.
Fast Horse is an independent, truly integrated agency built to unlock maximum value for our clients and potential in our people. No working in silos or fighting for a seat at the table. No competing interests or incentives. One office designed for integrated teams, not individual departments. Ideas come from everyone and they are optimized for earned, shared, owned and paid media from the outset. To that end, successful candidates must have the ability and desire to work closely with account services, strategy, creative, social, influencer, paid media and other disciplines to conceive campaigns and flawlessly bring them to life. To be successful in this role, candidates must feel confident contributing ideas throughout the campaign, and execute media relations tactics flawlessly.
