Job Description:

Working alongside the wider comms and marketing team you'll identify potential stories and use these to generate coverage both on-line and off-line.

The focus of the role is on the creation of creative PR campaigns which cut through the crowded landscape and help to position the brand in the forefront of minds.

What We're Looking For:

We're looking for a creative and experienced PR expert who has worked both on-line and off-line and who is used to identifying, writing and selling in news stories. You'll need to be able to demonstrate experience of both pro-active and re-active PR and prove that you can identify stories and turn these into news coverage. Candidates from both agency and clientside backgrounds will be considered.
