A little about us…

If you’re looking for a new challenge, working on some interesting and high profile nation clients within a dynamic and creative fast growing team then listen up! We’re looking for an enthusiastic and ambitious AE to join our Business and Corporate PR team in Bristol and work on some of the agency’s big ticket clients.

We’re the largest PR and communications agency in the South West, in fact we were recently awarded ‘Large consultancy of the year’ by PRCA Dare. We’re a 50-strong team of some of the most talented, dedicated and passionate people in the business. Ours is a culture where everyone belongs and where openness, diverse thinking, experiences and backgrounds are truly valued.

We’re also part of the mission, an international marketing, technology and communications group made up of 16 agencies and over 1,000 employees. Our scale means that we can invest heavily in your professional growth so that you can excel in your career. We help people reach their full potential through education, skills training, teamwork and individual coaching – all within a supportive and fun environment.

What will I be doing?

As part of the core client day to day team you will provide support managing campaigns and clients day-to-day. You’ll be coming up with creative story angles, engaging national, trade and regional journalists, consulting with the client on media opportunities and developing you own consulting skills and strategic thinking working with an account manager.

You’ll have plenty of support from the senior team and lots of opportunities for training, and to develop your own particular skills and interests. By necessity, we’re a fluid team, which means you’ll get exposure to all elements of the running of our Business and Corporate clients, which come from a range of sectors including professional services, automotive, manufacturing and education.
We’re open to new ideas and not afraid of a challenge, all of which underpins our drive to deliver the best possible results for clients and enjoy ourselves while we do it.

Responsibilities include:

  • Supporting the implementation of PR projects and programmes from initial brief, through to drafting content, media relations and campaign evaluation working with your account manager
  • Build and maintain strong media relationships that help us to deliver for clients
  • Development of an in-depth knowledge of the client’s business and the sector in which they operate to ensure PR initiatives are relevant and competitive.
  • Over time build and maintain strong client relationships, to support the account activity
  • Support the account teams with reporting and account management

What will I need?

You’ll have some experience of working in a PR consultancy or an in-house PR team (even if just from an internship) and have a growing understanding of the business-to-business sector. You’ll be a strong writer and communicator with the ability to develop close professional relationships with clients and colleagues. You’ll be ambitious and proactive with excellent organisational skills, and you will relish the opportunity to work in a fun, creative agency environment.
