This is an opening with one of the most highly regarded PR consultancies in the North West which will, without question, provide your career with an incredible opportunity to grow and develop.

The role

You will be working with high profile clients in the business to business sector, where you will support the delivery of client programmes and develop high quality content, as well as delivering social media campaigns, which you will also be responsible for reporting and monitoring.

On a day to day, you will build first class relationships with journalists and clients alike and ensure - working with the senior team members - objectives are met, and relevant coverage is achieved.

On a day to day, you will grow and maintain great contacts with the media, spanning press, TV, radio and online journalists for each of your client's sectors and proactively seek out viable opportunities. You will also write for a range of media and work very closely with senior account handlers who will provide guidance to ensure your clients' activity is delivered on time and within budget.

What we're looking for

We're looking for candidates that are confident in handling national and trade media, digitally savvy, keen to explore new tools and technologies and are adept in producing content for a wide-range of channels - from blogs, social media posts and infographics to thought leadership pieces and press releases.

We need someone with at least 12 - 18 month's B2B PR experience, whether that be from an agency or from working in-house, and will also require someone that has strong writing and media management skills. It goes without saying that you'll be keen to work within a busy agency team and will be able to show that you're capable of managing a diverse work schedule.

What's on offer?

The uniqueness of this role is that you will be joining a top draw agency, and will receive dedicated mentoring and training as well as a diverse benefits package, plus the chance to work alongside people that are well respected in the PR arena. For the right candidate, it is an exceptional opportunity to work for an agency which will genuinely add value to your skills, career and personal development.

They are also very keen to promote from within and most of their senior team started in junior roles so there is ample opportunity to move your career and earnings potential in the right direction. Salary level is dependent on experience, but will be most likely be £18 - £20,000.
