P/T - Real-time Monitor - Brunswick Group

Position: Real-time Monitor, Analysis and Research Center
Reports to Director, Analysis and Research Center

The Firm

Brunswick is an international corporate communications partnership that helps businesses and other organizations address critical communications challenges.  We started in London in 1987 and have grown organically into a private partnership with offices in 18 cities around the world.  Today, we have 92 Partners – senior professionals from a range of industry backgrounds including media, government and finance – and a total staff of more than 570. In the U.S. we have offices in New York, Washington D.C., San Francisco and Dallas/Fort Worth. We help clients deal with challenges that can affect their valuation, corporate reputation or ability to achieve business objectives by developing strategies to best communicate both externally (to investors, the media and other stakeholders) and internally (to current and prospective employees). 
The Brunswick culture is dynamic, team-based and meritocratic. Brunswick offices are “open office” environments where senior and junior colleagues sit side by side.  This creates an environment in which all employees see, hear, and take part in all aspects of the firm’s business.

Real-time monitoring is a crucial part of what we do at Brunswick Group. Keeping the client up to speed on developments is a critical responsibility but also an opportunity to be well informed on our clients’ business, media followers and industry landscape, ensuring we can add maximum value to our advice to clients.  We are looking for a “news junkie” who understands the media universe and the importance of information delivery. The Monitor will be responsible for using tools such as Factiva, Google News, Google Blogs and Bloomberg to keep our client teams informed when articles/posts are written about our clients and their competitors in real time.  The Monitor will pull articles as they post, format them and send them across to key members on the team(s).  At any given time, the Monitor will be looking after 12-20 clients around deals, crises, earnings and announcements. While familiarity is a plus, training in specific search/media monitoring tools will be provided.  This position is a long-term part-time role.  Hours would be determined upon hiring, but could be 8am-2pm or 1pm-7pm.  This position is not a telecommuting role. 
Responsibilities include:
·         Real-time monitoring of key client mentions in the media
·         Keeping up to date on Brunswick Group clients, industries we work in and our clients’ competitors
