A fantastic opportunity has arisen with a successful and growing Manchester agency to join them as PR Account Executive.  Ideally you are recent graduate with a PR, Journalism or English degree, a passion for PR and perhaps some placement experience within PR environments, either agency or in-house.  You’ll be supporting more senior members of the team, some great people who will give you excellent training and development, learning about PR from the ground up, so you must be prepared to get involved in the admin side of PR, keeping the team’s admin on track, updating and maintaining Work in Progress reports and timesheets, but you’ll also get involved with media liaison, drafting press releases and other content such as Social Media. You’ll get the opportunity to develop your skills and progress if you show the potential and right attitude.  You should have excellent writing skills, be bright and ambitious with a good positive work ethic, and it goes without saying that you’ll be able to juggle multiple deadlines whilst managing internal, client and media relationships.  This role will be to work on B2B PR so it’s important you can demonstrate a genuine interest and passion for B2B PR.
