Position Type: Senior
Position Title: Business Director
Position Start Date: Fall 2021
Application Close Date: September 30th, 2021
You will be the leader of our high-performing PR team in Toronto that works with a variety of technology, financials and consumer companies to garner editorial coverage in top-tier North American media outlets like Globe and Mail, Forbes and Bloomberg. You will have the opportunity to grow your career in many ways alongside an award-winning senior leadership team, owning your own portfolio and ultimately shaping your team as if you were running your own stream of business.
With a focus on your own P&L, business development (sales) and team development – this role is the ultimate opportunity for someone who is entrepreneurial, but values being surrounded by mentors and business coaches as they grow. Unlike most roles in a traditional PR Firm, this role has autonomy; and an entrepreneurial individual will excel running their own business unit, while thriving with the support of a robust Senior Leadership Team (including HR & operations support as well as robust sales mentorship) who will work with you to ensure your department’s success.
Talk Shop is a full-service, integrated communications agency and one of Canada’s Top 100 Employers. We value bright ideas and are always looking for smarter ways to work.

Our employees enjoy perks like flexibility, paid time off for volunteer days, learning and development sessions and competitive pay. Talk Shop has the industry’s lowest turnover rates – our people have the opportunity to build careers at Talk Shop and we offer mentorship and coaching to support career growth.
