Who we are:

bread & Butter is a hands-on communication company with a fondness for all things food, drink and travel. Started by two people with one vision – to fill a gap in a market that is missing a fresh, honest and innovative approach to communications. B&B partners with people, brands and destinations that continually challenge us to think big but act small.

 

How We Make the Dough:

We only partner with inventive businesses that inspire us and practice what we preach in our focus on hospitality. We are Southerners at heart, always saying, "Please" and "Thank You," and hustlers by trade. We listen to our clients and work with them to create bespoke campaigns tailored to their vision. We have honest, long-standing relationships with media based on mutual respect and a passion for the industry. For us, there is little difference between work and pleasure because our work is our pleasure.

 

We're Looking at You!

We've got an eye out for a rising PR star with experience specific to the travel & hospitality industry with the media knowledge to match. An Account Executive with Bed & Butter – Bread & Butter's travel division – is a go getter, creatively curious and a many-hat wearer who is ready to roll up your sleeves and get to work. When you're not planning an unforgettable trip for a journalist, you're fueling your wanderlust by working with writers to tell the story of the next big trend or what's new in the world of travel. Or, you're reading the headlines and the latest issues of Conde Nast Traveler and Travel + Leisure. You're the account dynamo, helping to meet client goals by building media relationships, crafting strong pitches, and consistently offering creative ideas and on-point deliverables. A proverbial eager beaver, you meet or beat deadlines, stay ahead of trends and always look for a new way to skin a cat. You like to go big – because going home isn't an option. You're learning to be a problem solver, and you value the relationships you're building with media and industry friends. A Bed & Butter AE should be thoughtful, creative, a collaborative worker and strong writer, possess an almost obsessive attention to detail, and is the first to get in the mix when helping means the chance to learn more.

 

Available Opportunity:

An Account Executive for Bread & Butter is responsible for managing and answering the needs of the client on a daily basis. Account Executives serve as representatives of the company and as liaisons between the company and the client. Account Executives report to the Account Supervisor or Director.

Here's What We Need:


  • 2+ years of PR experience in hospitality and/or travel required, preferably with agency vs. in-house.

  • Ability to craft thoughtful, on-topic pitches and successfully secure meaningful press hits.

  • Knowledge of how to build strong relationships with high-impact local, regional and national online, print and broadcast media contacts important to clients.

  • Initiative and creativity to develop effective media plans to help move clients toward their goals.

  • Ability to identify relevant opportunities to pitch designated clients.

  • Stellar reporting skills and an appreciation for the art of dotting I's and crossing T's. The devil is in the details.

  • Professionalism, punctuality and problem solving while maintaining a sense of humor.

  • Love of a fast-paced environment and the satisfaction of a busy yet productive day.

Having Our Cake & Eating It, Too:


  • We offer unlimited vacation, generous maternity leave, work from home, Summer Fridays, and time off for important days like birthdays and holidays.

  • We pad your 401k, offer new business bonuses, cover your cell phone and parking, and offer a generous employee referral program. We like to give you money, basically.

  • We love celebrating. Whether it's Wine Wednesday or Cinco De Mayo, we never miss the chance to raise a glass.

  • Learning is our jam. We offer an extensive training and mentor program, as well as the ability to work in any of our offices across the country. We take pride in setting you up for success.

  • Let's keep it healthy-ish. We offer generous medical, dental, and vision insurance, as well as a focus on wellness to keep you and yours in tip-top shape.

The Opportunity

There is no doubt that 2020 is going to be a pivotal year for American democracy. As an election year, it may be like no other. But beyond that, other key questions are at stake:


  • Will Big Money alone dominate the election, or will grassroots reforms pave the way for greater participation and a more genuinely representative democracy?

  • Will America’s courts make progress toward independence, or will special interest wield disproportionate power?

  • Will all Americans continue to have equal access to the ballot, or will voter purges, restrictions, and poll closures shut people out from exercising their rights?

  • Will policies that willfully discriminate against poor people and communities of color prevail, or will we make progress in living up to our democratic ideals?

With these questions at the heart of our work, ReThink Media seeks a passionate advocate to join our Democracy program, alongside a larger team of committed staff. By the end of 2020, the successful candidate will have presented media skills training workshops with key state and national organizations, developed relationships with top reporters, built a network of organizational contacts—and made a major contribution toward shaping a media narrative in support of a genuinely inclusive and representative democracy where all voices are heard.

ReThink Media is a unique, nonprofit organization that places media and communications at the center of our movement building agenda. We strengthen the collaborative media and communications capacity of state and national advocacy groups; increase the “voice share” of their spokespeople; and provide in-depth media, messaging, and opinion research to inform movement strategy.

We focus on long-term engagement with our advocacy partners and with the issues we take on—all driven by a belief that the stronger the groups are across an issue sector and the tighter their collaboration, the more likely they are to win real and lasting policy victories. At present, ReThink works in three distinct, yet interconnected, issue areas: the protection of human and civil rights; strengthening our democracy; and a more constructive US foreign and national security policy.

ReThink Media’s Democracy Program is driven by a team of five staff working with a network of more than 100 state and national organizations strengthening our democracy by expanding and protecting voting rights, reducing the influence of big money in politics, and pushing for an independent and fair judiciary. The project seeks to strengthen the communications capacity of organizations in the sector, to broaden the movement for reform, and to develop shared messaging and media strategies that advance a more inclusive, participatory, and genuinely representative democratic process.

Description

This is a position where no two days are the same and where quick thinking in rapid response is equally balanced with longer term strategic planning. The ideal candidate will be a self-starting problem solver with a proven record of success with media relations and placements. They will be an avid communicator who understands the role of storytelling in communications, who is committed to social and racial justice and who has an outstanding record of working in movement settings. Communications Associate candidates will have at least two years of professional experience working in the fields of media, communications, and press or public relations, whereas Senior Communications Associates will have at least four years’ experience. Experience working as a Capitol Hill or NGO communications staffer, in campaign or advocacy communications, or in pitching and placing content and/or spokespeople in the media would boost your application.
