Role: Senior Associate or Account Supervisor, 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, ECCO (http://ecco-network.com), provides us with overseas clients and colleague exchanges
- Client opportunities that put team members in Hawaii, at the Super Bowl or in Ellen’s chair at least once
- 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 3-6 years of direct public relations and social media experience for a position in our consumer practice.
