We are a great place to further your career, with a friendly team and a strong focus on development and training.  We are especially suited for people who are serious about their professional development and who are looking to take greater responsbility and use their inititiative to the full.

We are particularly looking for ambitious PR professionals who want to quickly get to move to Account Director within the next couple of years.

  • A “can do” attitude

  • A strong commitment to improving their skills as a PR practitioner

While we believe strong PR skills (writing, news sense, press contacts) are the cornerstone, you can also expect to pick up a range of skills around other important areas including SEO, website management, thought leadership, inbound marketing and social media.

 

Applications are invited by early June 2015.
