Talent Acquisition Specialist

New York, NY /
Public Relations – Admin /
Full-Time
Sunshine Sachs is proud to represent clients across many industries including entertainment, social good, tech and lifestyle and we tell their stories through a variety of mediums.  We know that even during the toughest times, our responsibility to our clients and each other can bring meaningful and long-lasting impact for those affected the most. We’re proud of each and every campaign we execute, but you may be wondering why we don’t have more than a landing page as our website. While many of our clients are household names (you know them, we’re sure of it), our digital footprint is purposefully small. We fly under the radar and we like it that way.
 
If you are fired up and ready to do good, join us! 

We have an immediate opening for a Talent Acquisition Specialist to join our HR team. This role needs someone who is familiar with the public relations, media relations and overall communications industry. You are incredibly organized, energetic and quick to pick-up on the ethos of a business/company.

It’s great if you have an interest in progressive social causes, up-to-date on current political events and, most importantly, are kind and collaborative. We are growing quickly and steadily. We have offices across the US so you’re comfortable coordinating interviews and meetings with different time zones!

A Little More About Us:
Teaching and mentoring is an essential pillar at Sunshine. Through a company-wide mentor program, all Sunshiners are paired with both a mentee as well as a mentor who is invested in your success and growth. We organize monthly Meet the Media series during which media contacts visit the office to explain who they are, what they do and best practices for pitching them and their colleagues. We have also developed a series of teaching workshops that are structured for each level of the company. All Sunshiners participate by leading sessions for team members who are more junior to them.
