Role: This is a fantastic opportunity for a PR professional who wants to develop their career working with a major supermarket brand client, and a team of dynamic people. You’ll be an established SAM or an AD seeking a new challenge; working on news stories, experiential activity and part of a busy press office.

Key attributes:

  • Strong team leader with the ability to be hands on, lead by example and motivate other team members
  • Excellent cross channel PR skills – understand all types of media and how they work, generating news angles and achieving fantastic coverage
  • An outstanding storyteller, with experiential, engaging social media campaigns, and event experience
  • Ability to provide strategic counsel
  • Commercially astute and decisive
  • Demonstrate a flair for growing revenue organically through strategic and creative recommendations
  • Resourceful trouble shooter who can apply their initiative and ‘create solutions’ rather than dwell on problems
  • Responsible for generating additional fees through strategic and creative recommendations, including proposal writing.

The rewards:

The chance to experience an ‘in-house’ role whilst retaining a leading agency’s support, training and exceptional additional benefits, including a competitive salary, private healthcare, a contributory pension and performance related bonuses, plus much more.

With centrally based offices in London, the agency offers a creative, energetic and encouraging environment for its 50+ members of staff. You will be joining a highly successful agency with a multitude of esteemed awards to its name, that has seen consistent growth year on year.
