How do I hire a PR agent for myself on the d/l? (Is this a dumb idea?)

I'm a professor, at a pretty good school in a non-STEM type field. I like my current gig. I would like to move up to an even better gig, in a better location. The standard m/o for such things is a) produce a lot of good research, and b) wait for people to notice it. I'm already doing a). I don't really want to wait around for b). Catch: blatant shameless self-promotion both looks icky and off-putting and signals lack of commitment to current gig.
Possible solution: hire a very discrete PR person. To do... what? Does such a thing exist, for individuals, who need attention from really specific groups of people? Or is this just a really ridiculous idea?
