Team Akrete (, a national 30-person PR firm headquartered in Chicago, IL, is seeking an experienced public relations agency professional to lead and co-lead accounts in financial services and commercial real estate. This position can be full time or part-time (20 – 30 hours per week) and fully virtual or hybrid.

Are you our candidate? If so, you’ll have 7-15 years’ experience playing a client management leadership role delivering communications strategy, media relations results and content marketing ideas for national or regional B2B brands. You are comfortable assigning and overseeing work done by other teammates, and you are equally proficient at being the primary account director or the co-pilot, working collaboratively with another account leader. You have a head for complexity and way of communicating simply. You have a solid grasp of pitch angles, news hooks and blog posts. And you are adept at making and sustaining relationships within the agency and at the client, at all levels. Ideally, you have both pitched national and trade B2B media and developed complex financial and commercial real estate content as part of your experience to-date.
