Tyndale House has a wonderful opportunity for someone who is motivated, hard-working, and adept at generating interest for our products and authors on major media outlets and social media. The ideal candidate would be a team player with solid communication skills—both verbal and written—and public relations, communications or marketing experience. The publicist plans the PR campaign, creates strategic PR content for each product, and then communicates effectively to the media to secure publicity opportunities for Tyndale authors and projects (television, radio, podcast, print, and web). Publicists pitch and schedule interviews and editorial opportunities for authors and build strong working relationships with publishing groups, authors, and media counterparts.
A college degree is required, and 3 to 5 years of public relations, communications or marketing experience is preferred. Professional composure and skills are necessary to be successful in this position. Candidates need excellent writing and presentation skills, strong project management and organizational/follow-up skills, and a willingness to learn a media database and work with spreadsheets. Qualified candidates will need to possess a natural and comfortable team player approach along with a personable, flexible, self-motivated servant attitude. The environment is dynamic and fast paced, and the ability to work independently is a must!
