Brief overview

This is an opportunity to join one of the premier agencies in the South Manchester area where you will be working on a raft of well-known consumer & B2B brands. They boast a varied and engaging client portfolio that is added to all the time and pride themselves on an extremely low staff turnover.

The role

The most attractive element of this role is that you will work in a supportive environment, with an inspiring team who are all dedicated to the success and growth of this award-winning agency. To provide you with a flavour of the role, your duties will include; working as part of an account team to develop client proposals and implement PR activity; write press releases and 'selling-in' stories to journalists; support account managers and directors with client campaigns and projects; meet clients and journalists; identify feature, coverage and social media opportunities; write client and internal blogs; organise photography and events through to managing the social media presence of their respective clients.

What we're looking for

This opportunity will most likely suit a creative and innovative PR practitioner with a minimum nine to twelve months agency or in-house based PR experience where you have worked mainly on a mix of accounts. We're after someone who's lively and bursting with ideas, ambitious and keen to learn. We need someone who is organised, enthusiastic and who'll happily get stuck into everything from writing to brewing up. Someone who isn't afraid to put their ideas forward with passion and persuasion. It's essential you'll have a keen eye for a story and talent for writing compelling press releases and articles. Ideally, you'll also have a good grasp of the digital landscape and be able to work collaboratively with their in-house design, web, social and content teams.

What's on offer?

Over the past twenty years, this agency PR has been delivering game-changing PR to clients across the UK and beyond. As well as PR, they also deliver exceptional digital, design and web development, which is why we're after someone who understands how PR can amplify all the elements of a good marketing campaign. A salary of between £17,000 - £18,000, and we have dealt with this particular client on numerous occasions and have a credible insight into their culture, so please feel free to call Simon on 0161 425 7352.
