PR Futures

Account Director - Seaside Living

Based near the beach in Brighton, this agency is the PR and marketing partner to the world's most exciting design agencies who deliver services such as branding, packaging, motion graphics and digital to a wide range of sectors from FMCG to property, retail, professional services, leisure, travel, financial services, and public sector.

Your clients will be based in London, New York, Stockholm, Sydney and many other glamorous destinations and you'll join a fun team of 20 PR professionals, journalists and senior marketers whose aim is to tell the world about the work these agencies can do.  You'll take a different approach to many traditional PR agencies – creating high-quality editorial for the clients and integrating the campaigns with broader marketing activity – and you'll get outstanding results.

What they need is a PR superstar to lead their account group of the most exciting design agencies in New York City.  It's a pivotal role in the agency and you’ll be taking over an existing account group of clients and joining an existing team, but there is significant scope for growing their presence in NYC and they want someone who is as excited by that opportunity as they are.  The role will involve quarterly trips to NYC, detailed immersion in the US media and design scene, and the enthusiasm to build their reputation in the US to where it is in the UK: the agency to come to if you want to grow your design firm’s reputation.

About You

You will have spent many years working in PR, ideally agency-side - and you’ll be looking for a new challenge.  You will understand what it takes to make PR campaigns work. You will be able to confidently guide clients, many of whom are inexperienced at PR, through the complexities and subtleties of a campaign. And you’ll be an inspiring team leader.

What they will Offer

The salary range is dependent on experience but is expected to be between £44-48K.  Ideally, this is a full-time role, but we would consider someone working four days a week (pro rata salary for part-time).  In addition, they offer a company pension scheme, childcare vouchers, cycle to work scheme, and 25 days paid holiday, plus the day off on your birthday.  It's is a lovely place to work, based right in the heart of (sometimes) sunny Brighton, there are frequent social events – from after-work drinks on the beach to an annual overseas trip - Berlin last year - and there’s a fun, happy and friendly vibe in the office.

To Apply

Please either apply online, or send your CV with cover note to andy@prfutures.co.uk.  Alternatively, feel free to call Justyne on 07971 361206 for an informal chat through the role.
