Our PR friend must:

  • Understand the world of media relations. Have great connections on speed dial. You can pick-up the phone and sms, WhatsApp & pitch stories. 
  • Help with the day-to-day accounts and project activities (aka admin king/queen): status reporting, tracking coverage, media follow-ups, briefing documents, scheduling interviews and client meetings, compiling monthly and quarterly campaign reports etc.
  • Help us to manage and brief suppliers (graphic design, writing, sourcing advertising quotes/rates and securing placements)
  • Be outgoing, social and confident and be able to manage client status meetings (when needed)
  • Have a flair for writing and work closely with our agency Head of Content to further develop this skill.
  • Love social media – what works, what doesn’t and how we can apply this to HLS and our clients
  • Understand content and various channels: what makes a good story, blog, interview, podcast, SM post, emailer, executive LinkedIn post, etc.
  • Think strategically and creatively: plan ahead and help your managers compile PR campaigns – understand the communications ‘golden thread’, days of significance, the core campaign messaging, and how to optimize content for audiences & stakeholders to deliver results.

  • Energy and attitude is everything. 
  • You are fast paced and like independence – the sky is the limit.
  • You want to be part of a fun, vibey and energetic team. You have a great sense of humour and love teamwork. HLS is all about ‘energy!’

  • Based in Green Point, Cape Town – we work from trendy offices (aka, our second home) and our culture + vibe is strong.
  • Teamwork definitely makes the dream work! This is evident when entering the office to find our team pictures proudly displayed in the entrance area, our iconic (yellow) office decor, and fun social gatherings like pizza Fridays. 
  • Our agency by-line is: ‘Creative Communications for Clever Brands’. And that is exactly what we do, we provide a range of communications services across multiple platforms and channels for some of the world’s biggest power (*clever*) brands.
  • We have fun, but we work hard and fast, and deliver!

  • Our team is made of expert writers and journalists, media relations specialists, graphic designers, social media fundis, and digital specialists.
