If you are unfazed by the thought of working with extremely high-profile clients on projects that invite media scrutiny, read on. The new position of account director is up for grabs at the Hong Kong office of one of the largest independent public relations (PR) consultancies in Greater China. Established in 1993, Newell Public Relations offers clients an award-winning pan-China service from one point of contact. 'Our roots are in technology, but we have grown to embrace a broad clientele from consumer electronics to insurance, toys and education,' business director David Croasdale said. This senior role, triggered by taking on new accounts this year, requires its incumbent to lead a team of four that manages a variety of technology and non-technology accounts. 'This role requires a native Chinese-language speaker capable of dealing with senior-level executives and the chief executive of a key client - a large statutory body,' Mr Croasdale said. As the client attracts a high level of media attention and has regular dealings with senior government officials, the work of the client is frequently open to scrutiny by legislative councillors and the media. As a result, whoever puts on the mantle of account director will need excellent communication skills, be tactful and adept at dealing with client requests and possess an excellent knowledge of Hong Kong current affairs. Excellent media contacts would also be useful.
