I'm Hiring!

Linda is looking for someone to help take NorthPR to the next level. Someone who loves the idea of entrepreneurship as much as she does, and brings smarts and creative thinking to the table. Someone who flourishes in a nimble and agile startup-type environment, and not a company with hierarchy and multiple levels of approvals. You’ll be helping her do it all!

Linda is seeking a PR consultant with 1 - 3 years experience who shares a passion for startup culture and entrepreneurship. Ideally, the best fit is someone who has already taken the leap out on their own with a couple smaller client projects. To start, you will join Linda in-house three days a week at Toronto's newest co-working space, Spaces Queen West (180 John St.). This could quickly move into a full-time position.

The qualified candidate is eager to tell fascinating stories to secure top media coverage for clients. They have a keen eye for detail and are able to think creatively, finding unique ways to solve challenges that come up throughout the day. They are a go-getter and find the 9-to-5 grind a bit of a drag. They prefer to work flexibly, and always get projects done on time and with grace!

Job responsibilities include (but definitely not limited to):

  • Brainstorming story ideas
     
  • Writing media materials

  • Developing and maintaining media lists using Cision

  • Media pitching

  • Building relationships with the media

  • Media monitoring and coverage tracking using TrendKite

  • Coverage reporting

  • Researching and applying clients for speaking opportunities

  • Editing, editing, and more editing

  • Writing company blog posts 

  • Working with social media influencers

  • Social media calendar content writing

  • Using Hootsuite to schedule content and monitor online conversations

  • Assisting with social media and media relations strategy

If you’re interested in applying, please send your cover letter and resume, or any other way you feel like applying for the position, to linda@northpr.ca.

The contract is currently scheduled to last a minimum of 4 months.
