As part of our ongoing growth, we have a superb opportunity for a senior account executive to become the latest addition to our team.

Reporting to two account directors, you will work with clients in sectors such as private jet services, aircraft manufacturing and travel technology. You will help us build and manage clients’ reputations through trade and national media relations, press release writing, article writing, social media and marketing content.

You must be a talented and precise writer, with excellent research skills and the ability to quickly understand complex topics. You must enjoy the cut and thrust of media relations and be ambitious to achieve outstanding results.

You will need two years’-plus PR experience, including B2B work, gained in an agency or in-house department.

Other key requirements include:

  • High academic achievement
  • Excellent English grammar, punctuation and spelling
  • An outgoing, confident manner
  • A positive, 'can-do’ attitude
  • Professional pride and attention to detail
  • Flexibility and a sense of humour

You will be rewarded with a challenging role in a friendly and supportive team that works hard but understands the importance of work/life balance.

As well as giving you plenty of client exposure, opportunities to prove yourself and expert on-the-job coaching, we will fund external training to help you gain a PRCA professional qualification.

Benefits include 25 days’ holiday plus public holidays and contributory pension scheme.

If you think you have what it takes, please send your CV and a covering email explaining your interest to Lauren Hughes.
