This is an opportunity for an experienced PR Account Executive to join a very successful integrated marketing agency based on the outskirts of Manchester. 

Due to new client wins, this well-established agency is looking for a talented individual to join their team, where you will work on an interesting mix of consumer and  business-to-business accounts.  Their clients cover numerous sectors, from FMCG and retail to property and leisure which will enhance your skills and career. You will be working predominantly on consumer related accounts, but also on trade and B2B, supporting senior account handlers on various campaigns.  There is also a fair amount of social media involved so you will need to know you stuff when it comes consumer blogging and all other elements of this discipline.

Your main responsibilities within this role will include writing press releases, liaising with journalists, assisting with research projects, contributing to PR planning, collating and delivering client reports, and taking part in agency-wide brainstorms.  You will also be expected to build relationships with clients and act as their key point of contact, and respond to various enquiries.

The structure of the agency also means you will get the opportunity to work alongside the digital, advertising, and creative departments which will broaden your skills and expertise.   As an individual, it is desirable that you have gained at least twelve months in a PR related environment and needless to say, a high level of written and verbal communication skills coupled with commercial knowledge of social media .   This agency can offer an energetic and supportive working environment and plenty of opportunities for career progression; so if you're looking to take that next step, please send your CV to consult@afselection.co.uk, or call Simon Pettigrew on 0161 425 7352 for further information.
