This is a great role for a consumer focused account executive to join one of the fastest growing and most progressive PR and digital agencies in one of the most up and coming areas of Manchester.

The role

You will be joining an extremely successful team servicing a raft of clients in the consumer sector from bespoke fashion retailers to high end luxury hotel groups. It is a key role within the agency where you will liaise regularly with your clients as well as the media, both national and local so exposure to both is essential. On a day to day, your role may involve drafting press releases through to developing social campaigns and organising niche events and photo calls in addition to maintaining effective client relationships. Due to the structure of the agency, you will benefit from working alongside some very talented and experienced PR practitioners as well as the opportunity to get involved in a whole range of campaigns that you may not be exposed to in a large agency setting.

What we're looking for

It is envisaged that you will have a relevant degree and at least 2 years' experience in a PR, consumer focused environment, which may have been gained in-house or within an agency. What is most important though is that you have a real interest in developing innovative PR campaigns for clients in the retail, lifestyle or leisure related industries. You will also enjoy working in an environment where no two days are the same and you must be able to demonstrate effective time management skills and an ability to prioritise your workload to meet deadlines.

What's on offer?

£23,000 depending on experience. The uniqueness of this role is that you will receive dedicated mentoring and training as well as the chance to work on some excellent brands which rival many of the larger agencies. For the right candidate, this is an exceptional opportunity to work for an agency which will genuinely add value to your skills, career and personal development. Interested?
