PR & Communications EXECUTIVE

We're Hiring!

Working across the full client portfolio of lifestyle (functional and sustainable fashion, beauty and wellness) clients, applicants need to be digitally savvy, highly-organised, have excellent communication skills, with visual flair, and lashings of common sense.

We prefer to avoid cookie-cutter job descriptions (no one is good at everything), which is why we work as a team. For us, diversity is key - and the role can easily be adapted for the right candidate.

You will be...

  1. Pedantic in your attention to detail, presentation, spelling and grammar, with excellent written and verbal communication.

  2. Organised, strategic, methodical and efficient, with good time management and the ability to prioritize. You will stay on top of a busy inbox, responding to press requests in a timely manner and ensuring nothing slips through the net.

  3. A digital geek.

  4. A dab hand with apps such as Canva, LightRoom and Later.

  5. Flexible in your approach to working hours - while you may have a midday appointment on Wednesday, or have to log off early on Thursday, you may also need to spend 20 minutes sending a client coverage on Sunday.

  6. Plugged into socials: Instagram, Twitter, LinkedIn and TikTok.

  7. Someone with a sound knowledge of key UK media including print and online.

  8. Full of ideas for clients to hijack around topical lifestyle/celeb news, pop culture and consumer trends.

  9. Self-motivated, proactive and creative.

  10. Tenacious...a problem solver.

  11. A team player and happy to muck in to get the job done.

  12. Able to balance more traditional PR approaches with new media/digital.

  13. Dynamic, pacey & positive.

Work culture

We are proud of our work culture.​ We’re super straightforward, positive and like to have fun at work. So are looking for the same in our next team member. We have a relaxed approach to work, this said…

We don’t work like most traditional PR agencies. The fast-paced new digital world is not 9-5, and nor are we.

 

While being strategically proactive in office hours, it’s often highly reactive out of office hours service that yields results. So we like to have rapid response and quick turnaround time, to ensure no opportunity is missed.

With this in mind, this role is best suited to someone who - like the existing team - is flexible in their approach to working hours. This means being responsive to press, clients and the rest of the team (within reason) outside of "office hours" and attending events that occur during the evenings and weekends.
