As the PR Account Manager, you will have tons of enthusiasm, a positive attitude and experience with client management. You'll have strong relationships with trade, consumer and national media and existing knowledge of the tech, creative/marketing trade and national press – along with the ability to proactively identify, establish and nurture personal relationships with key media contacts.
In return for your experience and passion, they are offering a salary of £35-£38K, plus a neat benefits package, they have an excellent remote on-boarding process, will focus on your career development and there'll be lots of opportunities to move to SAM and beyond. The client roster is impressive with your chance to work on a global consumer big brand client, while enjoying a supportive, fun and creative team. Once back at the office there will be flexible working, they have great socials and team away days and their offices are in a period building based in London Bridge, with onsite communal areas, and just near to the Borough Market. Plus you’ll work with two of the best founders in the industry.
