If you aren’t somewhere or doing something that isn’t moving you forward, take a moment to read over this.
It’s an opening with a mid-sized agency that has heaps of prestige & substance, owned by caring people that want to get the best out of you. They’re positive people & want you to be the best version of yourself & they’ve been around a long time, but have never stopped learning & evolving, and simply have that feel good factor about them.
Set in the heart of Manchester, in a sublime office setting, all geared towards staff welfare & development, and the level of their creative offering is way ahead of the curve, plus their employee benefits are way better than most.
The client base is B2B, and what they do has illuminated the brand presence of their clients to unprecedented levels & your role will be to harness and add value to these relationships. As part of the wider agency, their PR team provides sound consultancy to get a brand, business, and its people in front of appropriate media to tell their story. They have a common-sense approach, which allows them to bring intelligence and creativity to the content, activity, and campaigns they deliver for clients all year round.
All their clients want to be known for their expertise, innovation and the competence of their products and services. A positive presence in trade (and sometimes national) media, being an advocate for the industry and a contributor to key industry discussions is an important way to do this. You’ll be key to this way of thinking & with others, provide an elevated multi-channel response to many client briefs.
This may be through the traditional PR skills of co-ordinating media relations, maintaining journalist relationships, supporting the delivery of projects such as roundtables and managing public appearances by client representatives, but increasingly it is through the savvy use of social media and digital platforms for more direct communications. You’ll write high quality, impactful engaging content (media releases/features/comment pieces/website content/statements) & work closely with your AD to ensure your client relationships, are strong and strategic as possible.
What we’re after
If B2B PR is your jam, you’re in the right place. This consultancy thrives, and has done for many, many years – not too big so you won’t have a voice, or too small, so there’s limited room to move up – it’s just got that perfect balance. There are people from all different backgrounds & if you’re the type that’s happy to get stuck in, it’s the right home.
Culture is huge & it will only suit someone who is grounded & approachable and is simply top notch at creating superb client & inter-agency relationships – you will be running with their key accounts, with existing and potential clients, leading and owning the main relationships.
You’ll need that creative & pragmatic mindset coupled with extensive experience of delivering brand and related projects within an agency environment, and knowledge of the B2B scene is imperative, including a sound appreciation of the digital & social landscape.
What’s on offer
A salary of up to £40,000, plus the opportunity to work for an agency which has changed beyond recognition over the last few years and is continuing to grow and prosper. You’ll also be getting 26 holidays, plus BH, hybrid working, shut down at Xmas, plus many more things to make your working life more enjoyable.
You will also be working in an environment which positively encourages career and personal development coupled with the opportunity to work on brands which will give your CV kudos and gravitas. You will also be part of a management team which has significant input into the direction of the agency. If you’re about finding the right tribe which offer balance & harmony – you’ll be hard pushed to better this one.Apply for role
