Forefront Communications

Are you a great writer with a dedication to the craft and an eagerness to learn new things? Do you enjoy using social and digital marketing tools to tell compelling stories and keep people informed? What about the camaraderie of being on a collaborative team of driven professionals at a rapidly growing agency? If yes, then keep reading.
 

Located in the Flatiron District of New York City, Forefront is a specialized marketing and PR firm that services the most influential companies in the capital markets and institutional fintech. We apply deep sector knowledge, decades of in-house experience and extensive industry connections in developing highly strategic, bespoke programs that help clients grow, regardless of their lifecycle stage.

We’re looking for star writers with up to 2 years of experience, preferably those who’ve worked in journalism or other professional writing roles. While writing would be a significant component of the role, candidates should also have a desire to learn about media relations and digital marketing, as well as the financial services industry generally. Proficiency in the Microsoft Office suite and social platforms is required and hands-on experience with tools like MailChimp, HubSpot, WordPress and the Adobe Creative Suite is a big plus.

This is a full-time position that includes a full benefits package and a great work environment. We ask that employees spend at least two days a week in the office (Wednesdays and Thursdays).

 

Forefront was just named a 2021 Top Boutique PR Agency by Insider, and was one of six agencies named to Observer’s prestigious Financial PR Honor Roll, spotlighting the most influential firms serving the financial services industry. The New York-based publication noted that “the agency punches way above its weight,” helping it build an impressive roster of clients. Forefront campaigns have also been recognized by the Public Relations Society of America (PRSA) and PRNEWS’ Platinum PR Awards.
