Rare opportunity with one of the longest-established communications agencies within the East Midlands area, and they’re open to Senior PR Account Manager or PR Account Director candidates.
This particular PR Account Director role will be biased towards b2b clients covering a real breadth of sectors from professional service to education, logistics to construction, although the agency also works with consumer focussed clients. This is an additional role for the agency due to continuing new business wins. You’ll be directing and overseeing a mixture of new and existing clients, guiding your account teams, managing workload, taking full responsibility for managing projects as well as overseeing day to day activity. You’ll develop creative new ideas and strategies for existing clients and identify opportunities for new business – you’ll be happy to become an ambassador for the agency within the wider business community.
What we’re looking for
It’s fair to say, you’re really going to need to know your PR to be considered for this role, and will have gained a significant period of time working within an agency environment and will be of graduate calibre or similar. As we’ve said, you might be an existing PR Account Director, or you might be a career-hungry Senior PR Account Manager, looking for that next move. You’ll be as passionate about PR as they are, be creative and have the confidence and credibility when pitching to media and clients. You’ll have excellent social and digital skills as well as the traditional PR elements.
What’s on offer?
Based centrally, there’s lots of commuting and parking options, they offer 25 days holiday which increases with the level of service, and your birthday off too! They provide you with a training allowance and they’ve got a positive attitude to flexible days working from home. Salary will, of course, depend on the level of experience!
