Position Summary

We are recruiting a PR and Marketing Manager, Asia to cover an eight-month maternity leave. The role is based in Hong Kong – but we would also consider Singapore, depending on the candidate – and starts in April 2018.

The role is part of the Reuters PR and Communications team that manages all PR and marketing for the business.

Reporting to the Senior Director, PR, the role leads communications for the Asia region and requires experience of crisis communications, publicity and marketing.

The role is responsible – with support from the Senior Director - for managing complex reputational issues that arise in the region, overseeing broadcast requests, proactively pitching for media interviews and also handling invitations for participation by Reuters journalists at internal and external events.

It is also responsible for promoting the Reuters brand to sales staff and clients by contributing to the Reuters Best programme, global and regional marketing materials and communicating key messages on Reuters wins internally.

The role oversees many aspects of communications and so requires a confident self-starter, able to manage senior stakeholders, work autonomously at times and use their initiative to lead issues and generate strategies.

The post-holder will be our team’s lead and expert in Asia, so the role requires a thorough understanding of the Asian market and its media, as well as an understanding of Reuters’ presence and output there.

Among the responsibilities of the role are publicity campaigns, issues management, editorial bookings, booking speaking opportunities, contributing content for marketing collateral materials on a weekly basis, working on Reuters Newsmaker events in the Asia region.
