CAREER OPENINGS

Yulu fosters a culture of creativity, purposeful work and entrepreneurship. We always welcome the opportunity to hear from passionate, talented individuals who are interested in joining us.

ACCOUNT MANAGER

Want to make a difference and feel inspired daily? Look no further.

Yulu is looking to add a dynamic account lead to its close-knit team of experienced social impact communicators. Like our interesting and eclectic mix of clients, we are values-driven in the work we do and the culture we enjoy. 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.

In return, you’ll get to work with some of the most socially- and environmentally-progressive organizations across North America, learn from 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?

Our preference is someone who has PR agency experience but, if you can build a strong case for being the best candidate for this job regardless, get in touch.

Here’s just a sample of what your day at Yulu might entail:
  • Jamming with the team on the day’s top headlines and tweets to mine story ops for our social impact clients
  • Pitching New York Times, Forbes or FastCo with tailored, unique and compelling story angles they won’t be able to say ‘no’ to
  • Drafting educational and engaging op-eds that drive action and change
  • Working on strategic research, planning and consultancy
  • Project managing multiple stakeholders on past-paced accounts
  • Brainstorming, strategizing and executing integrated creative campaigns
  • Hosting a lunch & learn for the team on your designated UN SDG
  • Fighting for top spot in our ongoing email subject line challenge

  • Playing a key role in shaping Yulu’s coveted community and team culture
  • Playing an active role within the local and international B Corp community
  • Exploring ways to build our growing community of Impact Relations champions
  • Encouraging your clients to think beyond the status quo and helping them advance and inspire their industry
  • Eating a lot of candy
