Specialist communications agency is looking for an experienced and talented Community and Stakeholder Engagement Manager to join their growing team, after a company expansion.
Due to the investment in infrastructure happening in Birmingham, this well-established, multi-sited PR and communications agency, based in one of the premier addresses in the city, is now expanding further. Consequently, they need a Community and Stakeholder Engagement Manager to both work on new and existing accounts, and help them to establish and confirm their presence as they expand. The main responsibilities of this role will be to manage client relationships, accounts, and budgets, deliver on projects and campaigns, contribute to business development and growth, manage junior team members, represent the company at industry network events, and deliver timely programmes to achieve client objectives and project/campaign outcomes. You would also be expected to act as a guardian for the agency’s culture and brand, and to endeavour to articulate and promote their values, brand position, and quality standards.
What we’re looking for
You should have considerable experience of working in a PR and communications consultancy, preferably at PR Account Manager level or equivalent, but skilled Senior PR Account Executives looking to take the next step will also be considered – and, given the nature of the role, it is essential that you understand and have considerable experience of community and stakeholder engagement. You will need knowledge of day-to-day consultancy practices, communications, consultation, and engagement tools and applications, media and social media management, stakeholder engagement and consultation, and public affairs and political structures. On top of this, you should have excellent interpersonal, client management, budget management, new business, writing and media relations, and team working skills, as well as ambition, motivation, tenacity, attention to detail, and enthusiasm. Knowledge of B2B PR techniques is required, and, while experience in the infrastructure, construction, and development sectors is not a prerequisite, it would be very advantageous.
What’s on offer
The salary on offer for this role is between £28,000 and £30,000, depending on your level of experience. This agency is extremely successful, and will continue to be so as it expands. So if you have all the required experience and are looking for a new and challenging role, please apply via the link below or contact AF Selection for a more detailed insight into this role.
