The SPR team is looking for a communications pro

Sabo PR is looking for a communications pro to join our growing team. This position will be embedded half-time in the offices of one of our clients and half time working on a variety of engaging communications projects for our corporate, nonprofit, municipal and education clients.

Our agency has a strong culture of being client-focused, meaning we consistently strive to go beyond expectations to deliver exceptional results that turn our clients into fans for life.

Our ideal candidate will be:

  • A strong, fast writer: Able to tell a story, create a blog, craft a media pitch or press release or develop content that soars – and the ability to do it quickly and without grammar errors.
  • A strategic thinker, not just an order taker: Able to think beyond a client’s request and see the larger picture, developing strategic counsel and content to communicate effectively with key stakeholders
  • A proficient project manager: Able to lead a client team, working with internal client contacts, vendors and other key stakeholders in order to ensure projects are managed effectively and efficiently
  • Skilled with media: Experience working with reporters, including developing successful media pitches and media releases that demonstrate fluency with AP Style
  • Adept with social media: Possess a solid understanding of best practices for key social media platforms, as well as analytics
  • A flexible multi-tasker: Able to work with a diverse client base, adapting to their unique voices and cultures, moving easily from project to project
  • Visually savvy: Understand how both words and visuals are critical to telling a great story
  • Discreet: Able to keep confidential information confidential

Experience with graphic design would be the sprinkles on top of the frosting.

We’re looking for someone with 3-5 years of professional experience and a bachelor’s degree in an appropriate field.

Sabo PR is a full-service communications firm based in Grand Rapids and focused on media relations, social media management, crisis communications and issues management, marketing and branding, internal communications, photography and videography. A multi-generational team of professionals, we work hard for our clients – and enjoy our time together as a team. We offer competitive salary and benefits, including a 401(k) with company match.
