Communications Manager

Job Req ID: 296 - amaysim Australia - New South Wales

What's it about?

amaysim - We’re here to make things amazingly simple by untangling life’s unnecessary complexities.  We do this by being known and loved for the experiences we create, not just the products and services we sell. 

Our customers are at the centre of everything we do.  We take risks and defy industry norms to create refreshing and innovative experiences. 
 

The role of the Communications Manager is focused on media outreach to garner as much positive earnt awareness for our brands, products and launches as possible. 

 

The communications manager will do this through development and operational management of all public relations activities (editorial media strategy, press releases, press events, speaker ops, media relations and relationship management).

Who we are looking for?
  • You should have 8+ years experience in professional communications - specifically PR (consumer and corporate). 
  • Have existing relationships with journalists and influencers, and consider media relations one of your top skills. 
  • An unhealthy obsession with the news agenda, staying on top of industry news stories and relevant trends.
  • Experience in organising press briefings, media sessions and events.
  • Prepare briefing materials and manage executive spokespeople.
  • Demonstrate excellent writing skills, and experience writing a wide variety of communications (e.g., media releases, blogs, exec speaking points, speeches, contributed articles, etc.) on tight deadlines.
  • Ability to work in a fast-paced environment and manage multiple projects simultaneously.
  • Ability to work cross-functionally and mange a wide variety of stakeholders.
  • Experience in managing multiple PR agencies. 
  • Exemplary verbal and written communication skills.
     
Role Responsibilities
  • Create, implement and manage PR campaigns working across a variety of functions and departments (marketing and more).
  • Develop a robust editorial calendar of unique content to drive both the corporate and consumer narrative and messaging for the amaysim group. 
  • Development of exceptional PR activities including strategy, press events, speaker ops and press releases
  • A positive attitude: a “why not” person who sees opportunities and “makes things happen”
  • Maximising agency competencies to drive results that support integrated marketing campaigns, product launches and BAU activity that exceed expectations
  • Ability to set clear expectations both internally and externally whilst building and maintaining effective working relationships.
     
What's in it for you?

You'll get the chance to work in an environment that has an enormous appetite for change; a place that truly values and fosters the innovation you can bring to the teams you work with. We try to be as lean as we can, avoiding red tape and bureaucracy. We do our best to maintain the 'startup' look and feel, but without the constraints and overheads usually associated with less well-established organisations.

 

We're small enough that your voice will be heard loud and clear, and your (excellent) ideas and innovations will be championed and rapidly adopted. And we're large enough that we can execute on these ideas at scale and your work will be used by hundreds of thousands of (happy) customers.

 

But wait, there's more. As well as being an awesome place to innovate, drive change and make a difference, amaysim also tries to be a place that keeps you excited to come in on a Monday morning through all kinds of fun extras, including:

  • an amaysim phone plan (what else??) and a generous subsidy towards a new phone/tablet to use it on
  • an extra day of annual leave on your birthday
  • join the annual company on Culture Days to discuss and shape how the company is run 
  • a thriving social life, with events happening most months  
  • free F45 training at lunchtimes and yoga/pilates
  • and many, many others...
