Job description

Opportunity to join a marketing and PR agency that has a heart for working with brands/organisations (especially the underdog) that address positive social needs, especially in the areas like health/nutrition, education, urban management, and corporate philanthropy. We also work in industries that are equally making a difference e.g. sport, tourism, and technology. 

You will head up our publicity generation team and manage an account manager and account executive. 

You will take ownership of reaching (and exceeding) publicity targets on stories we issue on a regular basis. 

You will have a passion for current affairs, for news, for achieving targets (and being recognised for it), and want an opportunity to grow in an established agency that's passionate about making their clients shine rather than itself. 

You will be working alongside practice heads in content (writing/video/design), social media, and PPC/SEO. 

We have just opened an office in London, so there's opportunity to work on foreign brands.



Requirements

  • Minimum five years' solid experience in media liaison/publicity generation area, successfully selling in stories to media (TV, radio, online, print).
  • Strong understanding of how news media work. 
  • Current/up-to-date news media relationships. 
  • Proven experience/demonstrated ability with achieving targets.
  • Excellent writing skills. 
  • Excellent mentoring, coaching and people management skills.
  • An honest, openminded and willing attitude/approach in your day-to-day living.
