Communications Coordinator or Associate Counselor
McDougall Communications is seeking a communications coordinator or associate counselor to support the firm’s various global, national, and regional clients. Responsibilities may include:
Success at McDougall Communications is equal parts skill and attitude: we challenge ourselves, our partners and our clients to be braver, bolder and better every day. The ideal person will also thrive in a close-knit team environment that fosters and celebrates collaboration with individual accountability. As hard as everyone works, we also find time to inject large doses of fun and enjoy each other’s company.
The candidate must be able to travel domestically and have the flexibility to work during daytime business hours plus accommodate clients in multiple time zones (and the realities of today’s news environment). The firm provides a high degree of flexibility for all employees to help balance personal, family, and other lifestyle needs with public relations demands. In short, we treat everyone as adults—a simple but highly effective way of doing business.
The position includes a broad spectrum of benefits typically reserved for large organizations, including (at the time of posting) paid vacation, up to 10 scheduled company holidays, summer hours, an annual company retreat (to give you an idea—2022 was in Orlando, Fla. and 2021 in Scottsdale, Ariz.), healthcare and dental insurance, a 401(k) plan with matching contributions, performance bonuses, professional development and more. The role (communications coordinator vs. associate counselor) and salary are commensurate with experience, ranging from $35,000 to $50,000 annually.
A mastery of common digital tools (e.g., MS Office) is a must, as is impeccable editorial and creative writing (short- and long-form). Knowledge of social media best practices for B2B and B2C is required, including emerging platforms. Basic Excel knowledge as well as a desire to learn various analytics models and systems is needed. Skills in visual design / graphic design / video production are a plus.
As an entry-level role, a communications coordinator requires at least one year of related experience, which may include structured / professional internships. Associate counselors must have two to four years of prior, directly applicable work.
The position is hybrid, with employees working four days per week in our Rochester, N.Y. office. Limited regional and domestic travel may be required from time to time.
To apply, please submit a cover letter and resume to firstname.lastname@example.org.
