I am looking for
PR & MARKETING ACCOUNT EXECUTIVE
This role provides essential support for the whole team, helping with work across the agency’s entire client portfolio. As a Junior Account Executive, you’ll see how an integrated PR agency operates and be a vital member of the team, working across digital and traditional communications disciplines. No two days are the same and the sky’s the limit as far as progression is concerned. You’ll develop key skills in client and press relationship management with responsibilities ranging from creating and maintaining client reports to designing social graphics, developing press releases, pitching to the media and contributing to new business opportunities.
This role gives you a unique opportunity to have a clear career path in front of you: After successfully supporting the team across all aspects of marketing and PR, you’ll have the choice of progressing in your existing role or progressing to specialise in either digital marketing or PR and have a tailored development plan designed to help you craft a career in that specialism, while still gaining a wider understanding about integrated marketing and communications.
We’re looking for someone who is a capable writer, confident in their communications (both in person and over email or phone), and enthusiastic about digital marketing and PR. Excellent organisational skills and a can-do attitude to your work is an absolute must, and you’ll thrive if you’re a team player and a fast learner.
Typical Day for a Junior Account Executive
As a fundamental member of the office with your finger on the pulse of the national news agenda, you’ll start your day flagging the biggest news of the day and any new press coverage for our clients to the rest of the team. After responding to any client enquiries, you might spend your morning identifying and reaching out to the best media targets to pitch for a potential product review for one of our clients. If you get interest from the media, you’ll be coordinating getting review samples from the client to the journalist and of course – a lovely perk of the job – sharing the great secured review opportunity with the client as a PR result.
In the afternoon, perhaps you’ll contribute some creative ideas to our directors for a new business proposal, and start drafting a blog about a client’s new high-profile customer. Throughout the day, you’ll be keeping an eye on clients’ social media channels, responding to any customer enquiries and tweeting on their behalf.
