PR Account Manager – Full-Time

UK (Salaried - Remote Working) or Montréal (Freelance - Office Based)

Maternity Cover Contract (9+ months) with potential to be permanent.

 

The Role

Hello! Dead Good is expanding and looking for an experienced and enthusiastic Account Manager to join the team full-time on a maternity cover contract, with potential of the position becoming permanent. We are recruiting for one Account Manager position, but since we have teams based in the UK and Montréal*, we are open to applications from either side of the Atlantic. Whilst the requirements of the role would be the same, the nature of our set up means that the UK post would be salaried and “working from home”, whilst a successful Montréal-based candidate would be hired on a freelance contract basis, working in the Dead Good office located in the Plateau area.

 

Reporting to the Account Director and Company Director, this is an opportunity for a candidate with ideally at least two years previous experience in a senior PR Executive or Account Manager role to manage key accounts and short-term projects. Dead Good has worked with the likes of Bigben, Larian Studios, Maximum Games, SEGA and THQ Nordic, on titles as exciting and diverse as Baldur’s Gate 3, Deus Ex: Mankind Divided, Dying Light, Creature in the Well, WRC 8, Biomutant, Never Alone and Disco Elysium.

 

The successful candidate will need to be a passionate gamer and communicator, able to work independently and as part of a team. The fast-paced nature of the role will best suit someone who is able to multi-task and adapt to the ever-changing needs of the business, whether that’s a last-minute review code mailout, organising a European desk tour, or delivering a client update report.

 

* Applicants for the Montréal position will need to be already based in the city. Dead Good is not currently accepting North American applicants outside of Montréal, or covering relocation costs if applicant not already based there. Sorry!
