Further information

Itching for a fresh challenge in a new breed of technology communications consultancy with a team full of energy and enthusiasm?  This boutique London based technology PR and marketing business is going from strength to strength, offering clients a winning blend of ‘traditional’ PR combined with digital/social media expertise and a broader marketing support including lead generation and branding. 

The Company

Clients are a highly interesting mix of well-known global brands and emerging, fast-growth companies spread across the world in sectors including cloud technology, security and software infrastructure.  You will work alongside the MD who has amazing contacts and an impressive track record in journalism, PR agencies as well as in-house.  He will give you as much guidance as you need without micromanaging you, which will ensure you flourish to the best of your ability. The culture of this small and well-integrated team is incredibly inclusive and also down to earth which makes for a highly enjoyable environment.  The office is based in an exciting creative hub, so you will enjoy mixing with other entrepreneurial people from different innovative business and organisations.

The Role

Key challenges and opportunities in this London-based technology PR and marketing account executive role:

  • Use your ability to ‘translate’ technical information into business benefits to help write excellent PR and marketing collateral
  • Willingly involve yourself in marketing activity outside what PR consultants usually get involved in -  they are increasingly involved in content generation, influencer relations and social media, less so in traditional media outreach
  •  Build on your media contacts to successfully pitch stories to on and off-line media
  • Respond proactively to client requests
  • Play your part to help meet client objectives effectively
  • Play an active part in new business development including research and develop your presentation skills to take part in pitches

The Person

Key challenges and opportunities in this London-based technology PR and marketing account executive role:

  • Some technology PR experience or at least PR experience and a genuine interest in technology
  • Natural confidence, intelligent approach backed up by a strong academic record
  • Confident writing and verbal skills
  • An excellent understanding of the media landscape including social media and ideally Google Analytics
  • Ability to meet deadlines
  • Looking to make your mark but also willing to pull together with colleagues to make the business even more successful – a good sense of humour will help!
  • Genuine interest in business and current affairs
  • Curiosity and a strong desire to learn and develop yourself
