About the job

This role will work across three core clients. Two of them will be large global technology brands (think along the lines of What’s App, Samsung and Microsoft) and one will be a fast-growing tech start-up, fresh out of Silicon Valley.

  • Create influencer campaigns that drive social media engagement
  • Travel to major trade shows across Europe and potentially the US where you’ll drive media briefings and create CEO speaker opportunities
  • Meet and build relationships with the business, tech and consumer tech press
  • Sit in on creative sessions and be part of the planning & strategy process

About you

To be considered for this role you will ideally have experience as a PR Account Executive working on technology brands. Broader corporate or B2B experience will also be considered.

You’ll understand how to craft a good press release, have started to build some great relationships with tech and business journalists and have a track record in securing great coverage.

You’ll be someone who is hungry to learn the bigger picture of PR, not just focus on coverage but rather understand how to influence brand reputation and the strategy that goes into this.
