The candidate must be able to display the necessary capabilities to undertake the duties required of a Senior PR Executive.

Key Requirements:

• Develop strong relationships with all stakeholders including clients, journalists and bloggers
• Develop PR, Social Media and Communication strategies for clients
• Create high quality, professionally written content to diverse styles for multiple channels
• Show commercial understanding when developing client and agency content
• Work closely with colleagues and Directors to develop client and agency communications
• Work on own initiative to service client accounts on a daily basis
