Global Awards Coordinator
Working closely in partnership with the Global Awards Director, the global awards coordinator helps to oversee and implement the agency’s master global and regional PR industry and creative awards show strategy. This two-person executive global awards team supports and manages an appointed network of awards captains representing every geography within the agency, and exists to provide timely communications, awards direction and leadership, training and skills development, and 1:1 writing support to client teams worldwide. The goal of the global awards team is to improve Ketchum’s awards performance and outcomes in leading awards shows that are important to our clients, and which drive the agency’s creative reputation and creative agency index rankings worldwide. Ketchum holds the record for winning the most PRSA Silver Anvils –175 through 2017. Last year, Ketchum was the most awarded public relations firm at Cannes, winning 26 Lions.
Please note this is an administrative/project coordinator role, not a traditional public relations role.

And we’re just crazy enough to think we can impact the world – and how it responds to ideas – through communication.
We believe great ideas shatter expectations, change thinking and build brands. We call this break through, and it’s our mission to deliver it. How? Very simply—our people. By listening, cultivating diverse perspectives and rewarding fearless creativity, we’ve developed a culture of break through.
