We’re hiring: Join the P&G fam

Aug 20, 2021

We are hiring … for three positions! So how did we get here? Well, it’s a combination of a current team member deciding to pursue her dream of going back to school, a strategic restructuring of the agency and a little forecasting of client/industry wants and needs. With that in mind, we’ve identified three focus areas: media relations, DE&I communications and project management.

We realize these three areas don’t have much overlap and, frankly, we think they all deserve their own 40-hours-a-week focus, so we’re looking for people to fill each of these areas, but may not hire for all three positions at once. Below, you’ll find a summary of the positions and check out the PDF link for more details on each. If you feel you have overlap in these areas, that’s great; we’d love to hear about that so please tell us in your cover letter, but don’t feel like you have to be the master of everything.

Please note that the initial review of applications will begin on September 13. Applications submitted after will be reviewed on a rolling basis.
