Job Description

Our latest Partnership sees us working on-site with the wonderful 89up, an award-winning independent PR and comms agency based in Kings Cross. The agency specialise in delivering PR for good for clients across the world. Their mission is clear: to create a powerful integrated communications agency for the world's most important causes. They help the good guys achieve great things, whether they are charities, political campaigns or commercial organisations. With incredible clients and major global campaigns, we're looking for passionate top-flight candidates.

ROLE
We are looking for a smart self-starter. We need someone who has excellent contacts, a track record of broadcast success, mid-market press success, expertise in pitching to consumer magazines and a solid ability to pitch on behalf of our clients to international, national, regional and local media.

We want someone who can help deliver a killer PR strategy and assist with handling challenging client accounts. We're a flat structure at 89up, so everyone is expected to get their hands dirty - one day you may be writing and pitching a press release, the other pitching to a big potential new client.

REQUIREMENTS
* 3+ years of PR experience ideally at an agency but we will consider in-house
* Excellent client management with experience of managing major accounts
* Great contacts and someone who is a gregarious networker
* A real understanding of how to place a complex client in broadcast, print, online media and on social - with a proven ability to get our clients where their audience is (or should be)
* A self-starter who is capable of taking on an account without necessarily needing an account executive
* Strategic insights to help us communicate often challenging campaigns to inspire the public to take action
* A clear understanding of the potential of digital technologies for PR
* Additional languages or experience of working with international clients useful - let us know


If your experience matches the above and you're keen to make your mark in an agency where your contributions will be valued, get in touch!
