A bit about Wise:

Since 2011, we’ve had a clear mission: money without borders. Built by and for people who live global lives, we’re the fairest, easiest way to manage your money across borders. We’re just at the beginning of our story and we’re growing at an incredible pace. We won’t stop until anyone, anywhere can send, spend and receive money wherever they are, whatever they’re doing. There’s still heaps to do and we can’t do it alone.

A bit about the role:

We’re looking for a Senior PR Manager to help build, manage and improve Wise’s strong reputation across Asia. As a confident, creative, self-starter, who’s a great storyteller, you will be critical to helping SEA journalists and other key audiences understand how we’re bringing transparency to a broken sector through our mission and products.

You will be based in our Singapore office, reporting to the APAC PR Lead. 

What you bring to the table:

  • Demonstrable experience of working in consumer PR and corporate communications in Singapore and other markets across the region – this could be in-house at a startup or tech company or at a PR agency. Bonus if you’ve worked in fintech 
  • An innate understanding of what makes a good story for the media and how to secure great quality media coverage – along with existing media relationships in Singapore and knowledge in other markets. You’ll be broadening and deepening our contacts with consumer lifestyle, technology, and business outlets
  • Comfortable with scrutinising complex and technical data and turning them into simple and compelling messages and stories
  • A genuine, enthusiastic interest in Wise’s mission and developing and communicating great ideas to make financial services fairer
  • An ability to work proactively and autonomously in a fast-paced, high-growth company with a hands-on approach 
  • Critical thinker, highly organised, detail-oriented and able to meet deadlines consistently
  • Excellent written and spoken English. Additional language skills are a bonus.

What you will be doing:

  • Own Product Communications: Help us grow by embedding yourself in Wise’s local team to maximise the product news pipeline, as well as delivering global corporate announcements in multiple markets across Asia
  • Handle complicated issues when they crop up, and work directly with journalists to make sure Wise’s reputation is upheld. 
  • You’ll be able to execute PR plans that drive reputation and growth – whether it’s delivering substantial media coverage, turning speaking opportunities into reality, or thinking of new ways we can make the media and public aware of what we do 
  • You’ll be comfortable working with specialist spokespeople such as our Country Managers, Leadership Team and you’ll understand how to take a creative approach to make the seemingly mundane a hot news topic
  • Support Corporate Communications: Develop communications strategies to build awareness of Wise with influential business, tech and consumer lifestyle media, as well as handling issues as and when they arise 
  • Run Our Press Office: proactively dealing with inbound media interest and following up with relevant spokespeople to ensure a smooth process from start to finish.
  • Manage our agency partners in the region

Our People:

At Wise, you’ll be joining a movement of people who believe in a better, fairer, more transparent way of moving money around the world. You’ll collaborate to do your best work and take on problems that no one has looked at before. If you’re keen to learn, grow, try new things and aren’t afraid of a bold plan, you’ll fit right in.

How we work:

At Wise our strategy emerges from the collective brainpower of all our people, who are organised in dozens of independent, autonomous teams. Teams stay closest to our customers, so they choose what problems to solve and where to spend the most time. You’ll experience radical levels of ownership and empowerment within your role. Plus the opportunity to see the direct impact of your work on our customers.
