- Optimizing staffing, both onsite and through contract teams to respond appropriately to existing and incoming work of varying budget and priority levels
- Manage the P&L for the earned media practice with responsibility for performance (both growth and profitability)
- Aggressively grow the business through a combination of cultivating existing clients, rolodex, networking, new business RFPs and vision

We currently have a contract PR professional serving as the interim Director of Earned Media. The ideal candidate will be a Senior-level individual who has exposure, understanding and experience in across the PR, social media, and advertising, both in general and multicultural markets and able to share their experiences to the maximum benefit of our team and customers. o Full Job Posting: http://sensisagency.applicantstack.com/x/detail/a2c6vc3ufc0
