About the agency

Latte is excited to be exclusively recruiting for this wicked consumer & drinks PR agency. This team have set the bar high when it comes to creative, integrated work. They have created pop up botanical gardens to launch gins, created explosive science classes (literally) to highlight the ingredients of whisky and have boggled journalists’ minds at the most immersive tasting classes.

Their work isn’t the only thang that’s cooking with steam. They’ve also got a kick-ass culture with a close-knit, collaborative team. One that mucks in together and go on team trips abroad to “learn & develop”, and where individuals thrive through common goals (ahhh… that sounds nice).

Culture
The MD is a good guy, which is reflected in the types of people who build up his team. Described as a “kooky” bunch, they like to employ those who want to be part of a quirky crowd.

They do work hard and there’s lots of accountability as it’s just a small team. But they also know the importance of taking breathers. They have regular staff socials (including trips abroad for team building and training and development gigs).

Training and Development

They do reviews every six months to help set career and performance objectives. What’s really impressive is that they set an external training budget of £500 per person. Which means Line Managers may suggest courses that employees could go on, but if there’s a specific training course that interests the individual, they’re open to assessing if it fits in the plan.

Benefits

  • 20 days’ holidays + extra 2 over Christmas
  • Up to 10% bonus of salary if they hit the profit target
  • 15% commission of any new business leads they convert (from non-existing clients) for the first three months of retainer
  • Spring & Christmas away-days
  • Monthly team drinks/immersive event fund
  • Birthday lie-in until 11 am
  • Day off to volunteer for charity/passion day
  • Childcare vouchers for parents
  • Pension
  • Flexible working & summer hours are being introduced in 2018

About You

  • You will already be a Senior Account Director ready for the step-up or already at Associate Director level coming from a PR agency.
  • Ideally, some of your client experience will include drinks brands.
  • You’ll have a strategic skillset that can look beyond short sharp campaigns and into creating communication platforms for all of a brand’s messaging to be derived from.
