Further information

Our client, a leading Worcestershire-based organisation, is seeking a PR and Events Coordinator to join their busy development department. The PR and Events Coordinator will be supporting the coordination and delivery of an effective PR and communications service within the department, focusing on delivering and developing the organisation's projects.

As PR and Events Coordinator, you will be assisting in the planning and delivery of PR campaigns and projects, identifying opportunities for positive PR, assisting in the planning of a range of events and exhibitions, writing and editing press releases, editorial features, literature, and articles and preparing and supervising the production of various hand-outs, advising staff on effective communication tools.  You will also be expected to build relationships with a variety of key stakeholders and media, arrange photo and press activities, and respond to and resolve queries.

As an individual, you should have at least two years' experience working in a similar role within a PR environment, ideally with working knowledge of press, data protection, and basic law regulations. Experience of managing events, of working to deadlines, and of analysing problems and providing solutions is also required. The role is predominately PR with around 20% of the role focussed on events; therefore, we will only be able to consider candidates with solid PR experience for the position.  You will ideally have a relevant degree or professional qualification, but relevant experience, knowledge, and ability is paramount. You should be adaptable, decisive, with excellent problem solving ability; able to stay calm in the face of deadlines, with excellent communication, negotiation, and presentation skills, good interpersonal skills, and computer literacy.

So if you think you have what it takes to fulfil this role, as well as the required experience and bags of enthusiasm, send your CV to consult@afselection.co.uk, or call Hannah Fox on 0121 355 0955 for further information.
