About the agency

Our client launched in 2020 and have achieved phenomenal growth. They are now a team of 10, have 20 clients in their growing portfolio and are hiring several new team members to keep up with the expansion. 

This PR agency set out to offer PR services to the high growth tech start-up sector. Their unique offering allows clients to dial up or down the support they require, and this service sets them apart from your normal PR agency. It’s why challenger brands are flocking to them. 

Unlike many newer agencies, this PR agency has already turned away clients. They only want to work with real innovators who are disrupting their chosen sectors. These are clients that have interesting stories to tell and hence are a PR’s dream to work on.

They deliver both consumer and B2B and corporate reputation campaigns. 

 

Culture

You’ll get the opportunity to mould your role as the agency grows. It might be that you have a love for social media that you want to lean into this, or have a skill set in analytics that you can help them upskill in.  

Whilst PR is the core focus of the agency, they want their team members to feel empowered to grow out new service offerings. Furthermore, they’ll support you with training and development in these new skills. 

This is a PR agency where you will be part of the growth, not just another team member. They have a collaborative and engaged work culture. 

 

About the job

  • You’ll have a full understanding of your client’s industries and their unique business proposition
  • You’ll build personal relationships with journalists – develop your own contact book and go-to media
  • You’ll work towards ownership of your own priorities – act unaided on what is required to ensure deliverables are achieved
  • Client relationships are key; as such, you’ll actively work on fostering a close working relationship with your clients.

 

About You

  • You will currently be at an Account Executive level (or ready for promotion from JAE level) within a PR agency. 
  • You’ll have started reaching out to the media and creating rapport with journalists.
  • Your experience in client management will be put to good use. You’ll know how to lead from the front and manage expectations. 
  • You’re organised and able to handle tight deadlines and multiple tasks without compromising on quality. You’re confident working under pressure. You can adapt quickly and offer solutions in a fast-moving environment, and you’re just as adept at working on your own initiative as you are within a team.
