Ellis Rigby
Account Executive
Job Type
Full Time

We have two openings at AE level, with an ambitious full service PR, event management, media and marketing agency, which has been established for over 14 years. They have a reputation for business innovation and success, and work across a range of sectors including entertainment, leisure and tourism, retail, food and drink, education, law and sport.

The role

This is a rewarding and interesting role because it is diverse, and you will be working with an iconic UK retail brand as your main client, responsible for their PR and marketing campaign on a local and regional level. You will also be working with other clients which are prominent names in the food, leisure and drink sectors. On a day to day, you will be involved in organising experiential projects and events, writing creative briefs, speaking to local community organisations and managing photography, research, content writing as well as client & media relations. You will also oversee various other social and marketing campaigns so it is fair to say that no day is the same which can only add value to your skills and future career prospects.

What we're looking for

It is essential that you have at least twelve months experience with a particular emphasis on co-ordinating events, social media/content as well as local and regional PR because this will be a main part of your role. Ideally, your previous skills and expertise will have been honed in an agency background, although candidates with in-house consumer experience with expertise across PR and other elements of marketing will also be considered. It is also envisaged that you will thrive in a fast paced environment and are organised and able to work on multiple projects at the same time. The ability to write effective press releases and content for different media is also very important. There is travel involved in this role so you will need a full driving licence.

What's on offer?

A salary of £18,000 - £19,000 plus other perks and benefits, as well as being a perfect role for someone who is looking to broaden their PR and marketing skills and will enjoy the creative aspect of developing campaigns from concept to fruition. You will also enjoy working in a boutique agency environment where you will be given ample opportunity to develop and enhance your career.
