Water & Wall Group is an award-winning integrated communications and marketing agency specializing in public relations, content, and corporate communications for financial and professional services. Over the past 25 years, our team has helped myriad entities build brands, articulate viewpoints, ironclad their reputations, navigate crises, and drive business growth.
We've worked with some of the best-known brands in the industry, and have helped others grow from fledgling businesses into household names. Our financial industry experience includes hedge funds, private equity funds, VC firms, ETF providers, wealth managers, fintech companies, retail/institutional asset managers and more. Our professional services experience extends to law and accounting firms, management and regulatory change consultants, executive compensation specialists and real estate companies.
We are as careful at selecting our clients as they are at selecting us, and if we do business together you can be certain you'll have our undivided attention, razor-sharp thinking, and unwavering commitment to your success.
Experience - Have at least two years of experience working at a financial communications / PR agency or at a financial services company in a PR capacity.
Media Engagement - Be familiar with the financial services-focused press and know how best to approach journalists, TV producers and other members of the media on our clients' behalf.
Account Management - Be an account driver and be a trusted and informed client counselor. On the client side, we don't always report to other PR and internal-comms professionals. We often work with executive business leaders and owners who operate a complex business for a sophisticated audience. This requires a high degree of financial services industry knowledge.
Ideation - Assist in the development, or in some cases lead, the creative process for existing and prospective client accounts. The expectation is that you'll also participate in the implementation of those ideas.
New Business Opportunities - While at this level it's not a requirement to generate new business leads, it behooves the candidate, given the associated commission, to introduce the agency to potential clients. All team members participate in new business, as it's appropriate, from the initial introduction to the pitch.
