Director, Marketing Communications

Posted Monday, March 20, 2017

Are you a born marketer? Do you have that rare blend of serious digital and communications chops, an insatiable curiosity, the leadership skills to rally the best in the business to do their very best work, and the hunger to build a business? If so, read on!

NATIONAL is Canada’s leading public relations firm, and even after four decades, we're never satisfied to stand still and we're looking for someone with the same mindset to join our team! Our entrepreneurial, creative, connected and bold marketing practice is supporting some of the top brands in Canada and needs an account director that will own accounts, challenge and motivate the team and deliver innovative programs that get noticed for our clients. Oh, and you also have to be fun to be around.

Still interested? Read on to see if you’d really be a good fit:

  • You’ve developed strategies to best suit your client needs and market trends
  • You have a track record of success in digital communications
  • You’re currently working on top tech and consumer brands
  • Creating content is second nature to you
  • You have Canada’s top lifestyle media and influencers on speed dial 
  • You can write and present concepts that make people awestruck, cheer, laugh and sometimes cry (if that’s what the plan was)
  • You’re incapable of sitting still - you’re constantly pushing yourself to learn new skills and gain new experiences and you want to work for a company that has the same expectations for themselves
  • You don’t take yourself too seriously -- although you take your work VERY seriously
  • You’re looking for a role where you can contribute to the growth of our clients and our Firm
  • People call you a natural born leader. For you, leading projects and teams is almost easier than getting out of bed in the morning
  • You demand excellence from yourself, your colleagues and for your clients. Mediocrity just isn't you
  • You pride yourself on developing long-standing, connected relationships with clients, colleagues, media and influencers, all of whom would describe you as the kind of person we want to hire
  • You tell a great story, and have a knack for developing compelling pitches
  • You are a technology evangelist – you’re the one known as the early adopter and you’re constantly seeking out the latest and greatest technological advances
  • And it almost goes without saying that you’ve got exceptional communications skills: written, oral and interpersonal
