Irvine Partners is a PR consultancy with offices in South Africa, Nigeria and Kenya. We have expanded into the UK alongside some of our clients who now require dedicated support in Britain.

We are looking for a creative, dedicated, hardworking and capable Account Manager to work across a range of financial services and real estate clients ( commercial and resi). Some tech experience wouldn’t go amiss either.

This position requires a strong personality who will get the job done and does not require constant supervision.

The job includes, but is not limited to developing strategies for clients, creating tacticals and editorial calendars, writing pitches and editorial content, and liaising with clients. You will have to own client relationships and work with exceptional organisational and relationship skills to maintain these accounts.

You need to be a pitch demon, an excellent time manager and understand that PR is all about client service. A minimum of four years of agency experience is required.

This is a hit-the-ground-running position. You must know the business of PR inside out, and will be required to back up your CV claims with writing and pitch tests, as well as a demonstration of sound knowledge of the media landscape.
