Description of Position
SenateSHJ is seeking two experienced (Senior Account Manager level or above), bright and motivated corporate communications professionals to join our busy Auckland office.
With a portfolio spanning construction and property, insurance, oil and gas, government, iwi, healthcare and tech sectors, consultants at SenateSHJ work side-by-side with partners to deliver strategic communications counsel to our clients.
The successful candidates will demonstrate the ability to solve problems; understand the difference between strategy and tactical implementation; and be prepared to add value to their work through considered thinking, rather than strict adherence to a PR text book.
We are looking for genuine ‘smart thinking’, great writing skills and a desire to build a career in a business that prides itself on exemplary client service.
Consultancy experience is definitely preferred but not essential. Self motivation and dynamism are non-negotiable.
To apply for these positions, please send your CV and a covering letter to firstname.lastname@example.org by Friday, 8 March. Alternatively, call SenateSHJ General Manager & Partner, Kim Palsenbarg on (09) 353 6622 for a preliminary confidential discussion.
Key Areas of Responsibility
The appointee will demonstrate exceptional writing skills and problem solving; they will understand that listening is the basis of coming up with solutions to clients’ communications requirements; they will be quick, strategic thinkers, intelligent and hard working.
At SenateSHJ we work hard but like to have fun, so the chosen candidates will be capable of managing conflicting demands on their time and maintaining grace under pressure.
We understand that smarts come in many shapes and forms - salary will be commensurate with experience and negotiable to suit our preferred candidates.
Applicant must have a legal right to work in NZ
