(Archived) Associate Director – Fintech PR

Last Updated: 1/19/22

Job Description

Do you want to work in a fintech PR team that is showing seriously impressive growth, and that has a new business that prompts this hire and potentially more to follow?

Our client is an independent, ambitious and growing PR agency. They have a mix of clients including start ups and challenger brands.

They are looking for an Associate Director, who has proven experience in the fintech world, and is keen to take on greater client and programme responsibilities. They have an established Fintech team, which is really at capacity, and yet they still have leads and RFPs coming in. Bringing in another director to build a second team will allow them to double down on the sector, growing their market share and capitalising on the enormous market opportunity.

While the fintech division has experience working across the industry from capital markets to business banking and crypto, its heartland is payments. To meet their strategic objectives and grow revenue, our client wants to hire a seasoned fintech/financial services specialist at Associate Director level to establish and run a new stream outside payments yet, adjacent to fintech.

  • Build recognition as an industry leader both internally within CCgroup and externally to the sector the stream focuses upon.

  • Provide mentoring support to at least one member of the team
