Do you love media—social, digital and video? Are you passionate about building a community around an idea that matters? Are you detail-oriented without losing sight of the big picture?

We may have a spot for you to put your passions and education to use in the real world with a New York metro-area financial services client. You’ll work virtually—and occasionally in their offices if you’re local. This is a flexible part-time contract role that may lead to full-time employment (but doesn’t have to if you prefer maintaining your client base).

Responsibilities:

  • Execute social media strategies for Twitter, LinkedIn, Facebook, YouTube and Pinterest to gain exposure and engagement
  • Conduct and manage digital and traditional media outreach and uncovering new PR sources
  • Establish relationships with strategic bloggers, including pitching the CEO and occasionally other partners
  • Source and coordinate speaking opportunities for CEO
  • Handle ongoing book marketing and promotion for two evergreen titles
  • Manage digital lists and communication (Mailchimp)
  • Oversee production and distribution of future podcast
  • Provide occasional marketing support as needed

Job Requirements Include:

  • Demonstrated facility with key social media and blogging platforms
  • 2+ years of work experience in the field with a desire to learn how to integrate social and traditional media
  • Superb consulting, writing, editing (photo/video/text), presentation and communication skills
  • Self-starter comfortable working independently
  • Positive attitude, detail and client-oriented with strong organizational skills
  • Comfort with Photoshop, Microsoft Word and Excel (podcast editing expertise a plus)
  • Fluency in English
  • B.S. in communications, public relations, marketing, business or new media.
