The role

We are looking for an Associate Account Executive to join our Hong Kong team.


As an Associate Account Executive you will be part of a team whose main focus is advising global financial, professional services and technology companies on communications strategies that connects them with their audiences.


You will be an important member of that team. Responsibilities for an Associate Account Executive at Cognito are diverse and unique to each client, where you will have the opportunity to work across the communications spectrum, whether it is working with the financial press on deadline, or putting social media content out into the world on behalf of your client. You will have the opportunity to work on diverse accounts as well – clients can range from a Big 4 consulting firm, to an asset manager to cool new start-up technology companies.


More specifically, you will work in teams of two to five, with colleagues from all levels and regions (we are global!), including the Managing Director, where you will be involved in brainstorming sessions, daily client work, events and conversations to best help your clients reach their goals.


To help you get accustomed to our diverse client mix and offering, Cognito also offers hands-on learning and training to develop your role as a communications consultant from PR and social to marketing. We provide both in-house and external training opportunities to brush up rarely used and even undiscovered skills.
