PR Account Manager
Position: PR Account Manager
Our client is a well-established PR agency based in central London. They provide effective and efficient public relations services to the professional and financial services sectors. They are well-regarded for achieving excellent results for clients in the most influential national and international media. Their clients include private equity, hedge funds, law firms, small banks, other specialist non-bank lenders, accountancy firms etc.
They have an outstanding record for hitting the front pages, and are proud of the feedback they get – from clients reporting new business off the back of press coverage they have achieved to journalists regularly citing work as examples of ‘getting PR right.’
They are small enough to have a flat and flexible team structure, and big enough to have a good mix of clients, so while they will build on a new recruit's individual background, they can also guarantee exposure to a range of industries and issues. Their clients focus on some of today's biggest economic and business issues.
Their clients are in the financial and professional services sectors, so numeracy and an interest in business will be crucial; along with first class written (for writing and reviewing press releases, and client contact) and oral communications skills and the ability to win the confidence of senior clients.
The right candidate will need plenty of news sense and creativity in order to take responsibility for developing our clients' media strategies. They will also need experience of managing and mentoring more junior team members.
The opportunity would suit someone with a minimum of two years’ professional experience built from PR, journalism, or from another professional services or financial services background.
