My client is a well-known retailer and distributor of healthcare products and services and is looking for a Corporate PR Assistant to join the growing communications team. A Fortune 500 company, this offers the successful candidate a fantastic opportunity to work within a global business.


The Role: Working closely with the PR Manager and communications team, the PR Assistant will be responsible for planning and implementing PR strategies, writing press releases, blogs, case studies and articles, managing media enquiries and create content plans and schedule social media.


Key responsibilities:



  • Manage incoming media enquiries and respond as appropriate

  • Write press releases, articles and case studies

  • Develop relationships with press contacts and organise events and press conferences
