25.)  Director of Communications, United States Sports Academy, Daphne, Alabama

http://jobs.prsa.org/jobseeker/job/19931155

 

26.)  Director of Public Relations, Flir Systems, Wilsonville, Oregon

 

We are FLIR Systems, and we create technology that enhances human perception. That’s what we mean by, “The World’s Sixth Sense.” We are best known as a world leader in thermal imaging, but we also create a host of other detection technologies that increase awareness and personal safety, “For Your Life” (consumer), “For Your Work” (professional/industrial) and “For Your Mission” (law enforcement/military).

 

Our products are diverse, and so are the markets we sell to. We are global and growing. And we are looking for a rock star Director of Public Relations who will design and implement an overall public relations strategy that will help make FLIR a household name.

 

The Director of PR is a new position that involves equal parts “big picture strategy” and “nuts and bolts” implementation. In other words, you will need to be a thought leader who can mind the details. And because it’s a new role, this could be your chance to build your dream job.

 

FLIR is a technology company, so you will ideally have a background working in the tech space. We don’t expect you to know thermal science up front, but you’ll need to be a quick study. We launch multiple products every year, and are expanding our reach into consumer markets.

 

You’ll report to the Senior VP/Chief Marketing Officer and manage a mid-sized team.

 

We promise your job will never be boring.

 

On any given day you might plan a press event for a tradeshow in Vegas, explain the basics of infrared with a writer at Gizmodo, discuss an upcoming product launch with FLIR executives, or pitch Hollywood producers with the idea of using FLIR cameras in an upcoming superhero flick.

 

Like it so far?

 

What you will do:

  • Develop and coordinate internal and external public relations strategies in

support of six distinct business lines

  • Be the chief point of contact for media (Hint: your phone will be your constant companion)
  • Find strategies for increasing FLIR exposure in mass media, trade magazines, and

online channels.

  • Work in concert with vertical marketing directors, executive staff, and product managers to ensure PR plans are accurate, on point, and adhere to FLIR branding standards.
  • Develop high impact media campaigns, especially in support of international product launches
  • Promote FLIR as a thought leader in the detection and thermal imaging industries
  • Manage your department budget and work schedules with aplomb
  • Oversee and champion FLIR’s social media activities, collaborating with internal support staff

 

Qualities you will need to thrive in this position:

  • You are an experienced PR professional with strong knowledge and relationships with key media
  • You have demonstrated success building online and social media presence for a global company
  • You ideally have combination of agency and in-house experience (but especially in-house)
  • You have managed the PR campaigns of major product launches—from preparing media kits to orchestrating press events
  • You are a collaborative, team player with a high degree of initiative, drive, accountability, judgment, and flexibility
  • You are an outstanding writer, editor and grammar cop (Knowledge of AP Style is a plus)
  • You are undaunted at the thought of explaining thermal technology accurately and

authoritatively on the spot without notes

  • You have demonstrated experience managing and inspiring small teams of employees who

would say good things about you

  • You are eager to travel domestically and internationally–up to 50 percent of the time
