This is an opening for a PR Account Executive with a growing PR and creative consultancy, based in the heart of Manchester that provides marketing support to a wide berth of clients, across an eclectic mix of clients which spans HR, technology, professional services, the public sector and the third sector.

The PR Account Executive role

It's a great opportunity to accelerate your career by working closely with a team of senior practitioners in a friendly and supportive environment. The work covers all forms of the PR and digital mix, and you have the added advantage of having the support of an experienced team of PR practitioners around you. Projects will be varied, ranging from media relations and thought leadership content to integrated marketing, board-level advisory support and change management communications.

You'll play a key role in helping deliver integrated campaigns for a diverse client base spanning technology, professional services, corporate finance and social impact. As the digital PR sector continues to grow and evolve it is important that applicants have a real passion for the industry and are personally motivated to keep up to date with the latest trends. Working closely with other members of the team, you will create and implement online and offline PR programmes, and oversee the delivery of sophisticated online and social content. The work and projects are diverse which will make the role interesting as well as adding value to your skills and personal development.

What we're looking for

The client is open to considering applications from account executives looking for more of a hands-on role in a smaller team, which is growing year on year. It is envisaged that you will have 9-12 months relevant expertise, ideally with consultancy experience but more important is your ability to combine PR and sophisticated online content. Without a doubt, this is a hands-on role and we're looking for someone who is enthusiastic, and will immerse themselves in their subject matter and is keen to work on briefs involving innovative organisations, complex scenarios and change management/transformation programmes.

What's on offer?

You will be joining a new breed of business with a model and culture that offers unique opportunities to learn and grow. They offer a flat structure which means that you'll be exposed to every element of their work, from creative and strategic development to business planning. Their goal is to help you progress into a well-rounded senior marketing and communications practitioner. The role will be based in their Manchester city centre office, but the dynamic nature of their work means there are opportunities for flexible and home-based working. For the right person, this is the perfect opportunity to become an integral member of the team who will help shape and contribute to the consultancy's next stage of growth. Please forward your CV or for an informal chat, please contact Simon on 0161 425 7352.
