Head of Public Relations (w/m/d)

We are looking for a Head of PR who will lead our global PR efforts and create our strategy in order to maximise consumer awareness of AirHelp and air passenger rights. 

As part of the Brand & Reputation unit, you’ll be managing our inhouse-team as well as local agencies, working with flight data, legal specialists, and tech innovations to increase the brand awareness of AirHelp and identify the best position in the post-Covid travel world. 

 

What you’ll do:

  • Create our global PR strategy. 
  • Manage all PR activities including media relations (story planning and creation, relationship building with stakeholders, pitching support and coordination, etc), speaking engagements for C-level, spokespeople training, and events.
  • Create content that supports our Public Affairs efforts to protect and promote strong passenger protection legislation worldwide.
  • Collaborate in cross-channel communication campaigns.
  • Publicly launch new products and expand our brand to appeal to new audiences outside of air passenger rights.


  Ideally, you'll bring with you:

  • Exceptional strategic skills and experience in the creation of global PR strategies.
  • Strong stakeholder management skills (ideally experience in working closely with C-level).
  • An analytical mindset paired with creative out-of-the-box thinking. 
  • Project management skills.
  • Strong storytelling ability, able to convey thought leadership, break down complex topics, and turn data studies into exciting news stories.  
  • Background in journalism is a huge plus.
  • Fluency in English (other languages including German, Spanish, and/or French are a plus).
