Dreamworld hunts for new head of public relations

Gold Coast theme park, Dreamworld, is on the hunt for a new head of PR and internal communications four months after the Thunder River Rapids ride tragedy which left four people dead.


The job, posted on the earlier this month, is asking for “an experienced head of public relations and internal communications”.

The key duties for the successful candidate include “ongoing delivery of key messaging across media channels and with influencers for the division with a focus on pro-active activity, but supportive of reactive opportunities that come to the business,” and they must be able to “ensure messaging and activity across media activity delivers against the business strategy”.
