My client is a global FinTech leader with operations in Australia since 2014. Their philosophy is simple - to create a more efficient financial system that better serves their customers, while redefining the delivery of financial services. They leverage technology to deliver faster and more effective services, they provide greater transparency, and responsive and personalised customer service.
This is a unique opportunity to join a young team in a fast-paced, high-energy environment in the middle of CBD and be instrumental in driving the next wave of growth of the business. This is a critical role in the marketing team, driving awareness and engagement with the brand directly with consumers and industry stakeholders.
The role of PR & Content Lead is focused on owned and earned communication channels to garner as much positive earned awareness for the brand, products and people as possible. You will help develop a PR & Content strategy, as well as manage execution through all public relations activities (strategy, press releases, press events, speaker opportunities, media relations and relationship management) and content curation, delivery and amplification through our owned channels, including website and social media.
The role is hands-on with the right candidate able to creatively develop content ideas as well as communicate efficiently, confidently and effectively at senior management/CEO level. The role will work seamlessly with my client's PR agency to develop and implement PR and media outreach plans to support integrated marketing campaigns, product launches and BAU activity where appropriate, including leverage through their social channels to amplify activity.
