A fantastic opportunity has arisen for a budding PR Account Executive to join an independent, full-service B2B PR and marketing communications consultancy. This successful agency is looking for a talented and multilingual PR Account Executive to work with clients both in the UK and overseas.

As PR Account Executive, you will be working with the account team, writing press releases, technical features, contact reports, and agendas, liaising with UK and international media, developing media lists, monitoring and evaluating press coverage, liaising with clients, negotiating with suppliers, managing events, managing print and design, and accompanying account handlers to briefings, meetings, and photoshoots. Additionally, you will be planning workloads, meeting deadlines, managing ring-rounds while maintaining a good telephone manner, and providing administrative support. Importantly, you will be using your relevant language(s), both written and spoken, on a regular basis in a business context, and will get to travel as part of your role in order to attend client meetings and exhibitions.

As an individual, you must be fluent in at least one other language, preferably Dutch, Swedish, or Polish, but they will also consider German, Italian, Turkish, Chinese, Japanese or others. You should also have exceptional writing skills, and excellent time management and organisational skills; experience of working within an agency, PR, and/or marketing would be advantageous. You will be expected to develop a good understanding of PR and the relevant B2B industries and sectors, and to demonstrate flexibility, proactivity, and great communication and interpersonal skills.

This agency is really looking for someone who has the combination of language fluency, the PR and marketing skills, and a desire to forge a career in PR and marketing. Furthermore, the agency really values career progression and development, so if you are looking to establish a career within PR and marketing communications and you have the necessary language skills, send your CV to consult@afselection.co.uk, or call Simon Pettigrew on 0161 425 7352 for further information.
