Brief Overview

To join an integrated agency which has a rich history of prestige & success and works with a mix of iconic brands from retail, drinks & leisure through to property.

The role

There is a real buzz, excitement and family feel about this place, all are passionate about what they do & whilst they're remote at the moment, when we're in the office people work in their slippers, share pictures of their pets and frequently organise good old fashioned drinks in the nearby pub. Above all - remote or not - after a fulfilling day's work, people head home with a smile on their face. Looking after each other is the thing they're proud of & their high levels of staff retention prove it. .

A typical day (if there is such a thing) will involve writing creative press releases for your clients, then sharing with the target media to gain as much client exposure as possible. You'll regularly be touching base with the media, pitching your stories to journalists and always keeping your eyes open for opportunities to share your clients' news. You will be expected to build relationships with clients and the media, and act as their point of contact, and contribute to the direction of the division. The structure of the agency means that you will get the opportunity to work alongside the digital, advertising, and creative departments which will enhance your experience.

You'll also prepare client reports and when allowed, attend client meetings and attend and promote client events to the media. This will also include some inbound social media management for clients and the all-important subsequent admin tasks.

What we're looking for

Here we go, you'll have experience in writing perfectly formed, creative and interesting copy, long, short and all the bits in between. You'll have a sharp eye for typos and the wrong use of grammar and, be super organised with a can-do attitude. You must be confident talking to your colleagues and clients be that on the phone, by email or social media. This experience can have been gained from an agency or inhouse marketing / comms department.

What's on Offer

£22,000, generous holidays and time off around Christmas. Currently, everyone is working remotely but still staying connected with a variety of online socials. Email your CV or please pick up the phone for a chat to Debra or Emma 0121 355 0955
