Want to make a difference and feel inspired daily? Look no further.
Yulu is looking to welcome a PR Account Director to our dynamic team of social impact communicators. If you’ve visited our website, or heard about us in passing, you probably know we’re values-driven in the work we do and the clients we represent. As for our company culture, it’s strong; we not only like one another, we have respect for one another. We’re a team of strategists, storytellers, and creatives with backgrounds including journalism, advertising, marketing, and political advocacy – all committed to using communications as a force for good.
We’re looking for someone who isn’t afraid to think big and bold when it comes to ideas and results, someone who is thoughtful in everything they do, strives to have the greatest impact for their clients, is creative, curious, collaborative and, importantly, isn’t shy of hustling. We embrace a bit of edginess and encourage our team to challenge one another to achieve the best outcomes. The ideal candidate has a minimum of 6 years’ experience in a PR agency or in-house communications capacity.
In return, you’ll get to work with some of the most socially- and environmentally-progressive organizations across North America, manage an international team, and help evolve our agency culture, which we happen to think is already pretty awesome. Open vacation included – how’s that for starters?
Yulu is an award-winning PR agency founded on the principles of sharing stories that matter. Our clients are socially- and environmentally-progressive brands and nonprofits in the US and Canada. We’re looking for an Account Director to join our team and expand how we use communications as a force for good.
Our Agency’s Culture
What’s most important to us is to be thoughtful, curious, and bold in how we approach our work. As colleagues, we continuously strive to maintain a culture that values empathy, positive reinforcement, and being solutions-oriented. With the media being a fast-paced world, so are we – and we find the best way to sustain momentum is to go the distance together.
