Edelman is an equal opportunity employer of all protected classes, including veterans and individuals with disabilities.
The Financial Services industry is undergoing a period of immense change. The industry has needed to pivot from an opaque group of insiders to a public-facing sector that meets the demands of investors, regulators, and challengers in the form of upstart tech companies. They have a story they want to tell – whether it’s about how they are the nervous system for the financial world at large, how they have reoriented with a client-centric approach, or how they are building the banking model for the future in a world where AI wins.
The communications field is also in a unique position--the earned, owned and paid media landscapes are evolving, public relations and marketing are converging, and it’s harder than ever to get the media and audiences’ attention. We are working with clients and their teams in new ways to mine for stories and leverage all storytelling techniques—social, web, media, in-person, events, etc.—to help them reach people.
The New York Financial Services team is looking for someone who wants to help guide our clients during this shift. We are looking for a Senior Account Supervisor to play a key role on our team and become a trusted resource and counsel to clients and other internal partners.
