I have an opportunity for someone early in their career, who is interested in strategic corporate communications, but who is also open to something particularly entrepreneurial.
My client is a new consultancy, set up by a highly impressive industry figure, with a background in strategic comms. It has experienced remarkable growth, reaching a team of twenty in two years, and doubling in size since the start of the pandemic. An array of clients have come knocking at their door, all of whom bring interesting reputational challenges.
The team is looking for an Account Executive to help drive corporate comms and media relations activity. Everything the agency does is rooted in campaigns that genuinely matter, and work that is exclusively linked to major global issues.
This is an agency that's building a superb culture. They work hard for their clients and each other. They strive to be the very best at what they do, and they don’t take no for an answer. It houses confident, curious and entrepreneurially minded people, committed to building something exceptional, not to do what’s been done before.
Everyone in the team takes on responsibility from the first day, invariably more so than in other agencies, and has the chance to make an immediate impact. You will also be joining at an exciting time for the business, and they'll be looking for people who want to be part of their big ambitions for the future.
Key criteria include:
- experience in corporate communications and media relations
- strong written skills
- a clear understanding of what makes a story
- proactive in bringing new ideas to the table. Someone not afraid to speak out, who doesn’t mind making a mistake and learning from it
- solution-based - being resilient in a time when there may be setbacks
