Further information

oneagency.co is an integrated, creative marketing communication agency in the heart of Norwich. We’re a vibrant, award-winning and RAR-Top-100-recommended team of about 30 industry specialists and upcoming talents, from across a range of disciplines. Our services span more traditional B2B PR, advertising and marketing, to cutting-edge digital and creative offerings, and exciting consumer campaigns.

The role

We’re seeking a PR account manager to work for an exciting client group, including a major, integrated B2B client. The role has a strong editorial focus and so, first and foremost, we’re after a passionate writer with a nose for a good story and exacting standards. You’ll love turning potentially dry or technical material into engaging, creative copy. Here are the other attributes we’re looking for:

• Experience in B2B PR, in an agency or in-house, or strong B2B writing skills. A demonstrable commitment to effective, creative B2B PR and writing.

• An enthusiasm for turning your hand to other copywriting and editing projects. As well as regular news/product releases and features, you’ll be asked to write for and work on digital communications and literature, the occasional technical white paper and consumer projects.

• Excellent intrapersonal and communication skills. You’ll know how to get the best out of clients, third-party contacts and even the most monosyllabic of interviewees!  You’ll also be required to work closely with colleagues on integrated accounts/projects for clients using the agency for, say, advertising, direct mail, design and print, and the web, as well as PR.

• Ability to manage budgets and time allocation. You’ll be responsible for spending client budgets effectively and will care about identifying the best media outlets and suppliers for value-for-money results.

• Confidence in commissioning professional photographers and other external suppliers, such as technical journalists.

• Experience of overseeing/managing print/digital projects would be an advantage.

• A willingness to travel to trade shows, client events and meetings and interviews/photoshoots.

The rewards

This position carries an attractive salary and you will be working in a role with potential for exciting career progression, with the support of a bright, friendly team in an informal environment. You’ll learn from a diverse range of experienced professionals and skill-sets, with a regular Friday afternoon slot devoted to knowledge sharing (and a couple of well-earned wines/beers!). Our office is conveniently located opposite Norwich rail station, plus we boast a new London office in the creative hub of Shoreditch.
