  • Communications Assistant


We’re on the hunt for a natural people person with strong organisational skills who can help facilitate the press pitching and PR communications plans for our product and brand campaigns. That includes working with ambassadors, content creators, journalists and potential brand partners. Bellroy exists to inspire better ways to carry, use business as a force for good, and help the world flourish. Engaging unique people and high-relevance communities to spread our product stories around the world is key to achieving that brand mission.

That’s where you’d come in. As our Communications Assistant, you’d help facilitate the conversations we’re having with current partners and potential new ones. You’d direct opportunities to key people across the business. You’d run your brand filter across inbound enquiries and bring relevant ones to the table. And you’d help execute the outcomes.

Reporting to our Brand Communications Director and supporting our Content Partnerships, Endorsement and Creative teams, you would bring an interesting balance of ingenuity, grit and coordination to the team. You’d gather the breadcrumbs, find the gaps, ask the questions. In return, we’ll give you a world-class team to learn from, the tools to do your thing, and the support you need to flourish.

If you’re a quick and keen learner with an energetic spirit and willingness to make things happen, we want to hear from you.


  • At least 2 years working in a coordination or administrative role – marketing, communications or PR preferred but not mandatory
  • General understanding of and interest in marketing, PR, social media and content landscapes and distribution tools that can help our brand be seen and heard
  • A sense of what makes a ‘brand’ and some calibration on style and tone – you have the ability to consider what’s a good idea versus the right idea (for us, specifically)
  • The ability to think big and small – from recognising a big opportunity in our inbox, to keeping an eye on our ambassadors’ social media accounts in case something interesting pops up there
  • A knack for getting to the heart of what people need, and responding with clear written and verbal communication that strikes the right balance of friendly and professional
  • The desire to work autonomously, as well as collaboratively (and understand when the time is right for each)
  • Strong attention to detail, self motivation and ability to get. things. done.


  • Pulling an interesting opportunity out of our press enquiries inbox and going deep to figure out the ins and outs of the opportunity, before bringing a summary to the team
  • Creating a list of editors, journalists, ambassadors or YouTube personalities we should send a batch of new products to, and figuring out the best way to do it by the dozen
  • Initiating a discussion with our Brand Communications Director and Content Partnerships Lead regarding the outreach strategy of an upcoming campaign, and walking away with an idea of what the story is and where it should be distributed
  • Running a kick off meeting to get a new content piece started by the relevant people
  • Emailing a group of content creators who have agreed to feature Bellroy product in their videos, to coordinate samples, contracts and timelines
  • Organising a retro on some recent field tester activity, sharing the results and capturing the notes for future reference
  • Sharing a roundup of recent coverage, trends and community activity to the team


Bellroy’s mission is to inspire better ways to carry; use business as a force for good; and help the world – and our crew – flourish. We make great carry products that delight people in their everyday lives, while constantly innovating to improve the sustainability of our materials. We donate a portion of our revenue to some of the world’s most effective charities and are a certified B Corporation.

We have carefully built our culture on radical effectiveness. Our credo is "smart people with good intentions who get shit done" (yes, really). We help our staff love their work and grow as people and have been recognized as Australia’s Best Place to Work 2021, in the "< 100 Employees" category. If you are excited by the idea of working in an intellectually challenging environment, in an award-winning culture with genuinely great people, this might be the role for you.


This is a full-time role based in our HQ in Collingwood, Melbourne.

We have a hybrid working model, and a coastal office at Bells Beach to work from occasionally if desired.

Start Day: We're ready when you are!
