Senior PR Account Manager

South Manchester£32,000 + Benefits

We're on the lookout for a consumer PR specialist to join an outstanding PR consultancy as they continue to grow their already impressive client list.  This is a superb opportunity for a Senior PR Account Manager to join one of the most prolific agencies in the region in a hugely close-knit and successful PR team.

Whilst the agency covers a wide variety of accounts, this role will be involved with the consumer side of their business working on a mix of well known brands across different sectors.  You'll know what to expect of this kind of role, a great deal of responsibility dealing with extremely senior personnel within some large organisations, so you'll know every aspect of your trade and will have the personality to further develop those relationships. You'll naturally get involved with business development, but you'll also need to be a top notch writer and brilliant at media relations.

The team are currently busier that they've ever been and have more new business waiting to start, and a lot of pitches going on, so there is a great deal of job security and safety in this role, something that will probably be incredibly important to you within the current climate. The clients are superb and there is a genuinely good vibe within the agency, so it's a very happy place to be! 

To be considered for the role you will have previous experience as either an Account Manager or Senior Account Manager level in an agency environment, and be able to react quickly to a national news role.  It goes without saying that you will love (and be brilliant at) writing, be confident with media sell-ins at all levels and have a strong understanding of social media.  Our client would also consider candidates who have worked in-house most recently within a consumer/brand related  environment.  If you can demonstrate strong agency experience and all of the above criteria please send your CV immediately for the attention of Simon Pettigrew to consult@afselection.co.uk or call on 0161 425 7352 for a confidential chat.
