Job Description

Are you a Senior PR Executive or Manager with experience in professional services, looking to work for a Magic Circle law firm?

EMR are working with a Top10, global law firm to hire a Senior PR Executive (Manager level) who will be joining a high-performing public relations and external communications team.

You will primarily support the firm's UK practices in the UK, with a strong focus on tax, capital markets, technology and innovation, but you will also get the chance to support international colleagues with global PR campaigns and strategy.

Exceptional stakeholder management skills are essential as you will be expected to provide communications counsel to partners, and nurture relationships with trade, regional and national press to ensure the firm continues to gain high levels of coverage.

A keen interest in the wider professional service, economic and political environments is also important as you will be expected to respond quickly to trends outside of the firm. This could mean creating thought-leadership pieces, or pitching comment to journalists.
