Role: Managing Supervisor or Vice President, Consumer
Location: St. Louis, Mo.
Aren’t all agencies alike? Not by a long shot. O’Malley Hansen set out to be different from the start. We took what we loved and respected from our time at big agencies and left the rest. What you can expect:
- Big brand accounts, the kind agencies of all sizes envy
- Our international network, https://eccointernational.com, provides us with overseas clients and colleague exchanges – a team member spent a month in Australia last summer
- Client opportunities that put team members in Hawaii, at the Super Bowl repeatedly or in Ellen’s chair
- Lack of silos – one P&L means we share work across offices and practice groups
- Opportunity galore. Want to work above your “title”? Get involved in a project you know nothing about? Build a practice group or expertise? Let’s do it. We are looking for professionals who want to be the best in the industry.
The agency is seeking candidates with 8-10+ years of direct public relations and social media experience for a position in our consumer practice.
In this client-facing role, you will be responsible for developing and fostering a strong connection with clients on a day-to-day basis and leading a portfolio of consumer accounts. In addition, you will work with a cross-functional team in Chicago, New York and other members of the consumer team in our St. Louis office.
Candidates should possess strong communication skills and be able to handle multiple roles, write effectively and be a positive member of an account team. The selected candidate will lead accounts, mentor staff and be engaged in OHC new business efforts. Occasional travel is to be expected.
