An opportunity has come up for an Account Executive to join a credible and successful PR team, which is part of a well-established integrated marketing agency based on the outskirts of Manchester.
Due to consistent new client wins, this agency is looking for a talented individual to join their close-knit PR team where you will work on a mix of well-known consumer and trade and business-to-business client accounts, covering a diverse range of sectors including property, retail, consumer durables, utilities, and education. You will work within an award-winning PR team, supporting other account handlers in the day-to-day requirements for key client accounts. The role will see you working with a variety of clients, liaising closely with journalists and the media, planning PR activities, and taking part in agency-wide brainstorms, and collating and delivering client reports.
What we’re looking for
It goes without saying that you will be responsible for supporting the team across a number of accounts which will require exceptional organisational and communication skills. You will be expected to build relationships with clients and the media, and act as their point of contact, and contribute to the direction of the division. The structure of the agency means that you will get the opportunity to work alongside the digital, advertising, and creative departments which will enhance your experience. As an individual, you will have between 6 - 12 months experience which may have been gained on a placement or recently in an agency environment. Experience of working with either B2B or B2C client accounts is desirable - both would be a bonus! This is a great team who have won a few awards and there is a lot going on so you will certainly need exceptional communication skills, and be confident managing and prioritising workloads and juggling clients' needs. You should be personable and genuinely enthused about PR and happy to work in a close-knit team.
What’s on offer?
A salary of between £17,000 - £19,000 and the chance to join an award-winning agency that offers a grounded and positive working environment, as well as plenty of opportunity for personal development and growth. They are not too large so you will be lost in the crowd, and their owners are still involved in the day to day operation of the agency, so it still has a close-knit culture. They have won numerous awards and you will be surrounded by some very talented PR practitioners which can only add value to your development and progression. Please feel free to send your CV to email@example.com, or call Simon on 0161 425 7352 for further information about the role and culture of the agency.
